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

Even before I came to visit, I had long read about Angkor Wat on countless magazines, books, and blogs. But nothing could have prepared me for the real thing--Angkor Wat and the rest of the archaeological complex were unlike anything I had ever seen! It's as if time stood frozen inside the intricately carved hallways. The Bakan, most especially, was... More

We visited Angkor Wat twice, and it really was stunning. It is fascinating to look around and explore all around the grounds. I would recommend 2-3 hours here. I would also advise getting there for sunrise for some stunning photographs and for smaller crowds.

Beautiful temple but make sure you head there in the early morning to avoid the crowds. We were there on a surprisingly quiet day and managed to find some quiet spots to sit and admire the temple in.

Weht there for dawn but it was cloudy but was awe inspiring. Much bigger than anticipated and the restoration has been sympathetic. Went to highet level after waiting ffor this to open but this is not really necessary to get a sense of the extent of the area. Only go up the last section if you are fit. You have... More

Simply stunning is the only way to try and describe Angkor Wat. The site is roughly 2x2km square with a 200 metre moat all around it. Cross the moat causeway, come to the "front fence". Massive. You can walk down passageways inside the "fence". Pass through "fence" and down another main causeway to the main temple site. It just keeps... More

A very large temple and maybe that's why it is the most common out of the lot. However this was not my favourite temple but it still deserves 5 stars for its greatness and beauty. We took 1.5 hours to look around and felt that was plenty. Some people might want longer or less. If you come for sunrise, most... More

This place is all you would expect it to be. The other reviewers here do it justice when describing how wondrous and beautiful this and the other temples in the area are. Unbelievably breathtaking and an important site for Cambodia's tourist trade. Unfortunately, because it is an important tourist spot, the vendors are everywhere. Most have portable tables around their... More

Angkor is a vast area within Cambodia that displays many examples of ancient temples. Angkor Wat being arguably the largest gets the most visitors. But it takes some imagination to try and imagine the pristine architecture as it was when it was built and wonder at the skills and capabilities of the Khmer who built the complex. Without a doubt...
