Home to Angkor Wat, one of the largest religious complexes in the world, and a stunning array of 9th to 13th century temples built by the kings of the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Archaeological Park is breathtaking, and still the principal draw for every visitor to Siem Reap.

We arrived before dawn, and has tourches to see us across the bridges. I my opinion it is only worth going at this time of the day if the sky is red, as the sun position leaves the Ankor Wat in shadow.

Worth a few days of exploration to do the area justice. Angkor Wat, on it's own, with a guide to interpret the site, is a full day's visit. The bas-relief sculpture that surrounds the site is a wonder worth some significant time. Bring plenty of water, comfortable shoes, sun-screen and eyes open to the intricate beauty of the carvings and... More

Take comfortable walking shoes and you will not be disapointed. Not the easiest attraction to get to, but the views are outstanding. Spent a enjoyable couple of hours with friends.

Be prepared!!!! Get some step fitness in before you travel. Lots of two up and two down steps plus the steep ones to the top of the temples, all a must do. All the steps, together with the heat and humidity make for a long day. After the sunset get you driver to take you straight to Ta Nei temple.... More

My friend and I visited the park over 2 days. One by tuk-tuk one by bike. It's defenitely the thing to do here and I recommend taking a bike on the 2nd day as it's quite easy to find. Great place to visit

A magnificent sight & an absolute must-do whilst in Cambodia. Don't be pressured into joining a tour group or hiring a guide and being ferried around like sheep. Do your research, plan a route, don't hang around too long and you'll be able to get all the best sights into one day ($20 ticket). We hired a couple of mountain... More

We spent 3 days in Angkor and did the morning sunrise of Day 3. Didnt get the glorious red sunrise as you'd expect giving the month but still glorious reflections. Angkor wat a let down though in comparison to the other temples like Bayon and Preah Khan. Definitely hire a tuktuk driver from SR and barter. Ours was great -... More

You can not come to Siem Reap & not visit The Archaeological Park. You must buy a ticket - either 1,3 or 7 days before you enter to explore the temples. One day is $20. In 1 day you can see a lot but it is a little exhausting, lots of walking & climbing. The ticketing area is set up... More

This park is large and has some of the most amazing archeological sites you will ever see. We only had three days but managed to hurtle around quite a bit of it. We got a three day pass which costs $40. You have to queue up to get a photo pass done. We visited Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, the Bayon... More

Absolute must when travellin in Cambodia. Very beautiful ancient temples iconic to this country, and also vivid nature around the area. It was very good to explore the area with bicycle! I'd recommend doing it in maybe 2 days (though there are only options of 1 or 3 day tickets). I did all the main temples in a day though,... More
