A trip to Siem Reap would not be complete without visiting Angkor. Some tips - it is hot and (in the high season) very crowded. remember to take drinks, good walking shoes and there are a few places you cannot go if you are wearing shorts / short sleeves. remember it is still used as a temple at certain times...

We were only able to spend 2 days but were able to see many temples with a private tour guide. I highly recommend a private tour guide that is licensed properly in Cambodia. They are very knowledgeable of their history as part of their training, we as times had information overload but it was wonderful, I probably took over 1,000... More

Getting to Angkor was something I had in mind since I was a kid. Now that I finally made it happen, I have to say it has not disappointed me at all, it is the great place you expect it to be. But the government should do something about the exploitation of the ruins if they want Angkor to keep... More

Having read and heard some much about Angkor it still could not prepare me for what you truly experience when you see it and walk through it first hand. Around ever corner is another marvel of human ingenuity. You could spend hours admiring the size of the temples and the way nature is reclaiming it's original location.

We spent one week here visiting the park in July. Three day pass gave us enough time to see all including sunrise at Angkor Wat. This entire park is fascinating with rich history and architectures. We rent tuk-tuk each day and it is great way to stop at any temple at your own pace.

Been here twice in 2 years and still have not seen it all. Love the carvings and the history that goes with places like this. Amazes me they built and carved this stuff thousands of years ago.

I noticed that one can give reviews of each temple in this park but that is too time-consuming and while some temples definitely are must-sees, others can be fun to just wander around in. Although I read up on this place before we left on our trip, I was still stunned at what a huge area it covers...it can be... More

If you're in Siem Reap, I'm sure you already here for this. Definitely worth buying more than 1 days ticket, you'll be back. If you're cycling to see the sun rise and you're on a deserted road, you're on the wrong road and you'll miss the check point to buy tickets. The road you want is about half a mile... More
