Owner description: Angkor Wat, in its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled. Its mightiness and magnificence bespeak a pomp and a luxury surpassing that of a Pharaoh or a Shah Jahan, an impressiveness greater than that of the Pyramids, an artistic distinctiveness as fine as that of the Taj Mahal.

If you get there before sunrise and experience it beyond the ruins, then the experience is guaranteed to be unforgettable. I did it earlier this year and I continue to try and relive the experience at least once every 2-3 days. The whole thing was just so surreal. It's hard to put into words. You just really need to experience... More

I had read a lot about angkor wat.but the reality when i visited angkor wat was mindblowing.a sandstone edifice built in the 13th century without mortar cement or nails it is a monument to rival the pyramids.awesome.nice guides.the cambodians are very friendly.the biggest hindu temple in the world.the sheer scope and size of the complex takes your breath away.

We used ankor wat services and our guide Bun and his driver were wonderful. We were a group of 6., ranging in age from 8 to 75. He was very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. His English was excellent and we had a wonderful day. We took a break for lunch and he took us to a perfect place for us,... More

THe biggest and the best - I would save this for last as everything else pales in comparison and would be an anticlimax. To climb to the very top, it is a must do but is very steep. Not suitable for small children and try to wear longer shorts or loose pants - Asians are quite conservative and some may... More

we saw the temple at sunset first. it was very busy with a lot of people queuing to get up and down the stairs to the highest level. it is the most well preserved temple as it was never abandoned. we were lucky that night a movie was being shot in the grounds and 100 floating candles were put on...

We arrived in Angkor Wat at around 9am and people was already filling up, the pictures that we took was not good because the weather never cooperated. It was gloomy and looks like it's gonna rain. After an hour, it did not rain but the skies was filled with nimbus clouds. Again, no good photos. But the view and the... More

This place is beautiful both at sunrise and during the day. There's so much to explore as you wind through the complex.

I have wanted for many years to come here and I was not disappointed, entering from the back made it extra special. From the front it consumes you but from the back it creeps up on you. Take a guide, take the steps up to heaven. without the guide you will not understand the full significance of its history architecture... More

After seeing a lot of pictures and reading a lot of reviews we were very eager to visit the Angkor Wat temple. As most of the time, we thought it would be a bit disappointing after reading so many good reviews. But we were wrong. As we reached the temple we were mind blown by this ingenious builded temple.
