What an amazing experience specifically sunrise over Angkor wat. A must see - it is absolutely worth your while getting up early.

I only saw Angkor through pictures before. I was in awe when I finally saw it! Although they say it is best to visit the temples during dawn or dusk, the details and the history around it made it up to me. They were astounding! Too bad it was quite damaged by the Khmer Rouge; you can see evidence of... More

This is why we went to Siem Reap. The Angkor temples are fabulous. There are many more than Angkor Wat, the most publicized site. The park is huge! If you are not with a tour, be sure to take a tuk-tuk or car. It was very hot when we were there, and we were thankful to have an air-conditioned car... More

What an amazing site to see. Go there either early in the morning or after 4 pm on super hot days. Read about it before you go, there is so much history that your guide cannot cover in a few hours.

Its amazing to cross from side to side of the Park and see temples and buildings all over. Spectacular scenery and lovely graders. The conservation of the temples is great. Even the small ones that are not famous.

Words can not really describe how mind blowing the Angkor Archaeological park is. Do not hesitate to engage the services of a guide.....you will get soooo much more from the experience, money very well spent. Highly recommend to include some of the more remote, less visited temples during your visit as well. Awesome!

Wow! We've been looking forward to this trip for years and we weren't disappointed. The entire Angkor complex is simply fantastic. Well preserved ruins and you have access to wander though almost all of them. Plenty of opportunities to spend your money, so be careful. If you prefer to not carry your water there are vendors everywhere selling it. Be... More

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
