If you're in Siem Reap, I'm sure you already here for this. Definitely worth buying more than 1 days ticket, you'll be back. If you're cycling to see the sun rise and you're on a deserted road, you're on the wrong road and you'll miss the check point to buy tickets. The road you want is about half a mile... More

Just pure awesomeness. The temple complex is HUGE and has many temples with different styles. Get yourself a tour guide to explain the history of the complex and you will be amazed by this site.

The place is full of history and is a true architectural wonder considering it was built hundreds of years ago. Angkor Wat, Bayon, Banteay Srei and Ta Prohm are the most popular and perhaps the best temples. If visiting during the rainy season, it is advisable to take along a rain coat as it will be needed. Hire a good... More

Siem Reap's main attraction are the temples. Not to be missed by any visitors to Siem Reap. You could spend easily one week visiting temples and still not having seen all of them. I had enough of temples after three days. Make sure to chose wisely at what time you visit them, as it can get very hot and humid.... More

This whole place is quite large and magical. There are a lot of temples to see which cannot be done in one day. If you're the type of person who wants to say ''been there, done that'' Then you could most definitely see the more popular temples in one day. However if you would like to take your time or... More

Just being on place that existed for over a thousand years is enough reason to visit this place. Just make sure you choose a good tour guide, who will take care of you, who will make you laugh and will not bore you. Touring Angkor Wat for a day can be a Temple Overload so make sure you have fun... More

The fact that it is so close to town only makes it better. From the Surrounding moat and HUGE GREEN space around Angor Wat to the surrounding jungle and other temples. Don't rush, but take it all in!

One must read about Angkor before visiting the sites.The prosperous Khmer civilisation between 8th and 13th century sent emissaries to India to find out why India was more prosperous."They pray at Temples" was their observation and the kings made temples for Vishnu, Shiva,Hanuman and Apsaras few of which were replaced by Buddha (Sakyamuni of the Hindus who is the 10th...

I can't imagine visiting during high season (probably much too crowded). At low season the crowds were not so large so that some peaceful moments could be found inside. It was a pleasure to explore the carved walls and learn some of the Hindu / Buddhist history relating to the temple.
