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. « less

It's the big daddy of the temples and an amazing place to visit. Sunrise visit is best (hopefully you wont get an overcast day). Go with an informed guide, read up on the history beforehand or visit the museum in town (before or after), so that you can really appreciate the historic and cultural significance. Donate a dollar for the... More

I had heard a great deal about this and it was certainly on my bucket list. It did not disappoint. The temple complex is astoundingly large. What was most interesting to witness were some of the ongoing restorations using modern cranes and equipment. How on earth were these ancient people able to construct such enormous structures using primitive tools and... More

We were unable to replicate the publicity photos, but in every way this place is amazing as so much of it is in tact, with so much detail still there, and using your imagination you can picture how it might have been in its heyday.

What can I say, everybody has heard and seen pictures of Angkor Wat. It'a all and much more. Of course it gets really crowded, but one can also find quiet spots and absorb the history. The stone work is just incredible. The whole complex is really huge, one can only imagine what it much have been like ages ago. Sunrise... More

Ankor Wat is the greatest place in Siem Reap, you must try to know Ankor Wat before going there or you will miss the greatest things. You must go there early in the morning or late in the afternoon, avoid crowded tour group.

It is 1,000 years old! Make sure to get there in the morning as in the afternoon it can get quite Hot!! Make sure to negotiate with the taxi driver that you will only pay 30.00 a day unless you get on a tour! If you are in Siem Reap a must do!!
