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 is definitely astounding and a must do. I just kept imagining how amazing it would be if we were there by ourselves...

Was hoping for a beautiful sunrise over the temple as we arose at 4.15 am to journey to the site but was bitterly disappointed at sunrise when all we got was a dark outline of the place.

WOW is all you can say, this is the most amazing natural historical site I have visited. It is amazing that many people in Canada and the U.S have never heard of this place (but they all know Niagara Falls). This place has to be on everyone's bucket list at least once in your lifetime.

This place is so full of history, I imagined that I could actually feel some of it. Just mind boggling. Definitely one to put on the must do list.

I went to Angkor Wat for the sunrise its so fantastic. I wondered in and around the temple itself and discovered the amazing stone carvings and some people had engraved their name and year from 1890 and 1904. Its astounding that after thousands of years this structure is in such amazing strength and stability. The ppl who worked so hard... More

Just walking through the wat & its ruins was unbelievable! The thought that these building were built 900 years ago is mind-boggling!

Simply an amazing ancient wonder of human construction capabilities. Surely a must visit before you die!! A massive building, sitting on moist woodland, build only from sand and stone - amazing. There are plenty of beautiful reliefs and statues - make sure you don't forget your camera!

This place is the biz, but in August the heat and humidity can be lethal. Take care to bring a covering for shoulders to enter main inner sanctum. You really don't need a guide just admire the carvings and setting. People watching is also a great diversion, seeing the variety of tourist behaviour and dress. The vast park surrounding these...
