We took the 3 days pass and it absolutely paid off. Recommend to go their by bike giving you a more direct (and independent) encounter with the park.... The park provides sufficient temples /sights to explore for > 1 week ...

Good for history and architecture buffs, a photographer's heaven... Highly recommended... Good to have a guide here to explain the scriptures on the walls of the perimeter surround it.

I have always been interested with ancient civilizations, and as with great ancient structures, Angkor Wat lives up to it's legendary name. I still could not fathom how it's built! How large the whole complex was and how tall the towers & walls were, up to the intricate carvings on the stone walls...simply breathtaking

Another awesome place for exploring. So much to check out that the one hour I spent on it was simply not enough. Definitely worth a second visit.

Since at least 20 years I´ve had Angkor in my bucket Llist... It didm´t disappoint me!!! The place is astonishing... and not only Angkor, but also all the ruins in the area. Camboya is really a place to go! It´s people, the food, the sightseeings on the rice fields... the food are part of an incredible experience!

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.
