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

The experience is simply marvelous and shouldn't be missed. How they were able to build this structure 800 years ago before power tools, cement etc is a mystery to me. We went in the afternoon and enjoyed the temple under the glow of the sunset. If you want to go up the towers make sure you wear pants (shorts will... More

$20 entry fee is a cheap price to pay to see the temples. Having always been in use, its a huge site being 1km x 1.5km its an engineering marvel. It was a busy day when I was there but I still managed to find areas that were peaceful and just sit back and take it all in. You can... More

The complexity of the temples are amazing. Everywhere you look there is a different carving or design. This kind of complexity is hard to explain and should be seen in person. You will need to stop and get a temple pass. They take your picture and this allows entrance to the temple areas around Siem Reap. They do have people... More

One of the best sunrise. You should have your breakfast take-away from hotel to visit the sunrise, right after sunrise where most of the tourist heard back to their hotel for breakfast, you'll see people start heading towards Angkor Wat complex. You may join the people to tour around the Angkor Wat complex in the morning as that should be... More

We got up early and went here for 5/00 am to watch the sun rise over the temple. Although there were hundreds of people there too it did not take the shine off the occasion. The complex is huge. We climbed to the top of the third terrace to the highest point where the views were stunning over the tree... More

The Sunrise here is absolutely stunning but u have to be at the lotus pond before daybreak at 4.30am to secure a good spot for photo taking otherwise the huge surge of early risers will just overwhelm you. After Sunrise, it is nice to take a slow walk around the 1st level perimeter to take in the perfection of the... More

Being an Indian, I have seen many Hindu temples and hence I did not find Angkor as good as some of the other reviews suggest. Sure it is amongst the largest Hindu temples, but it is not maintained well. You need 2 hours to see the entire temple. When you enter, go towards the pond on the left side (near... More

I travelled with a group of friends for 3 Days including 2 pretty long layovers to reach Siem Riep. Flew via Dubai and Bangkok and seeing the Angkor Temples was central to our entire trip. This is my first bucket list item where I left questioning whether the temples belonged on a bucket list. It is undeniably an architectural marvel... More

Angkor Wat is a must see in Siem Reap. Make sure you wear the right clothes (covered shoulders and knees) because the views from the top of the temple are spectacular and should not be missed. I would recommend paying for a private guide (feel free to message me if you want a recommendation), it helps you understand the history... More
