This place is amazing. The trees have grown to overtake the buildings. It is both beautiful and eerie. You can see why they make movies like Lara Croft and the Tomb Raiders in this area. You could not conceive of a better set for this type of adventure movie.

So much to see! Worth getting a guide for the day - the average cost per day is $25US and they are definitely worth the money. You learn so much more about the architecture and history that you would by wandering aimlessly by yourself.

Spent three days traveling around the park (two days on bicycle--one on the mini loop and one to the Roluos Group; and one by tuk-tuk to catch the sunrise over Angkor Wat) and loved every minute. There are so many temples to see, so many stairs to climb (haha) and if you can I really recommend doing it in three... More

Yes, it is worth the hype. Get a three-day pass and take in the temples by tuk-tuk and by bicycle. If you can only get to the temples for one-day, then you must see Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, and Benteay Srey, even though it is a ways out there. Absolutely worth the drive.

Like many, I have heard about this place for many many years. I was not ready for such a huge and impressive archaeologic site. It was staggeringly beautiful and interesting in the extreme.The size is simply incredible. It was all that I expected and far more. No one should visit Cambodia without seeing this place. It is Integral and important... More

While the heat can be overbearing in the 'low 'season, still would not have missed this for anything. The detail and majesty of the buildings is something not to be missed. I was told Dec/Jan are the most temperate months to visit, however this is also when the crowds arrive. I visited at the very end of September, and the... More

this newly constructed museum really is a useful introduction to the meaning and themes of the temples, from a religious and cultural point of view. There is nothing about the construction of the canals and tanks though, nothing about the irrigation process, the wars with neighbours, the historical analysis of rise and fall.....

Simply breathtaking. Everyone needs to see this place in their lifetime! It's ideal to get a tuk tuk to take you around to the different temples.
