The temples may look the same, but it's really worth exploring each one. Lovely temples, and very interesting and beautiful carvings. Better bring something to cover up the skin as the sun can get scorching hot during the day time. Be careful with the children selling stuff as they can get really pushy. I ended up buying 2 sets of... More

This is the most amazing place and really worth going to. You need a few days there to really get the feel. Hire a Tukituki driver to take you around, usually your hotel will get one for you. Unfortunately one day we weren’t allowed to go to one temple because of a dress code so just make sure you don’t... More

Despite the hordes of tourists, the temples were simply amazing. The lack of quiet spirituality was balanced by the stunning construction and stone carvings. With my 3 day pass, I was able to escape the crowds after the first day when I joined the masses for the Angkor Wat sunrise and the small circuit tour by tuk tuk. I found... More

I think it is nice place to visit for one full day. I would be tired to stay there for two or three more.

Spending two days in environment of angkor wat. Unbelievable! Absolute one of the major must sees in south east asia. Spend 2 or 3 days there. I hink the best way to do that is renting a motorbike becak for one day (10-15 use) The main reason to choose for that is that in between the temples yopu get some... More

My husband and I hired a tour guide for a day tour of the main temples. It is unbelievably hot during this time of year so we were lucky our guide had a car with air con. Bring tons of water or dollar bills for buying water from vendors. We paid $1 for 2 bottles. Some temples require you to... More

it only charges usd20 for entrance fee and is a nice place to look sun rise. Those ancient buildings are unique and amazing. But,some steps are difficult to climb and may cause accident. ( SO BE CAREFUL) Also, some parts of temple still under conserve/maintenance.... (Remind: FOR FEMALE VISITOR, there is a temple where female visitor with singlet or short... More

Super hot during this time of year, but what a magical place! I highly recommend arriving in time to watch the sun rise over the temples. I also recommend going with a guide on your first day, because they have so much wonderful information to provide. On day 2 or 2 and 3 go on your own and take your... More

This is an amazing structure of the bygone era. Angkor Wat gave us a glimpse of life during the 9th-13th century. How great to walk and tread each stair in this marvellous temple. The murals are inspiring that Khmers contributed to our world civilization. On the way to Angkor wat is lush lined trees which give relaxing feeling to visitors.... More
