Owner description: 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.

Is Angkor Wat ever not busy? It is great at sunrise and sunset though. If you're not with a group, hire a bike and take yourself around, missing the crowds. This is such a wonderful site, with so much variety, it did not disappoint. Dislikes? The, predominantly, Chinese and Korean tourists blocking the amazing sights to take selfies!

Plan carefully. It's enormous. You need transport. Chinese New Year so it was too busy, losing some of its charm.

Amazing site, but very crowded. It is better to see smaller temples in the early morning if you would like to get into a more authentic atmosphere and not into the tourist business.

While we all have seen and read about Angkor Wat, it is not until one is physically there that one realizes, not only the size, but the amazing intricate carving, writing and scened depicted in the monumental architecture. One really needs more than a few days to visit it all, but 4 days gives you a good overall impression. Key... More

This is my 2nd visit to the Angkor Archaelogical Park! It is still as amazing as it was but a little disappointed that some tourist are disrespectful and do not respect the rules and regulations for dressing in the Angkor area.. we all know it is HOT in Cambodia.. but please people, if you're visiting a temple, don't wear shorts....

This immense collection of temples is awe inspiring. This is like the lost city of Atlantis, instead of swallowed by the sea, this one was devoured by the jungle. There is so much to see, I highly recommend the 3 day pass as a minimum ... that will seriously temple you out, hitting all the main spots with enough time... More

We spent three days exploring the various sites and were never bored. The guides were great. Beware the kids selling school supplies as they know you will just donate it back.

About 3 hour to visit this ancient park. Very impressive. Good time to visit is morning , to avoid the high temperature during noon. Be prepared to have water , and good shoes .

Wonderful area to visit, recommend morning trips ie, 6am - 10/11am. Sunrise at Angkor Wat is very busy and the insects are very biting!

The whole Angkor Wat experience is almost overwhelming and In my opinion having a guide is more than helpful. Our guide, Ny Danith, was incredible. He got us in and out of places with ease, knew the best view points, how to minimise the distractions of other tourists, had great knowledge of the temples, spoke very good english with a... More
