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

Nothing can prepare you for the actual beauty of this spectacular wonder ! From the wide moat with its long carved walkway you approach the ornately carved entrance to be stunned by the grandeur of the 4 towers of the main temple complex .Take your time to enjoy the intricately carved walls steeped with the history of ancient battles and...

The best parts of this temple was the top the temple where you can see out over Siem Reap and the walls where there are beautiful stories carved into the walls. It was amazing.

We travelled here in september and had really built up expectations of this. The build up was incredible - Tuk Tuks, Taxis and Buses darting to Angkor in the dark at 5am, everyone rushing to get tickets, and then the pilgramage across the reservior into the temple grounds ready for sunrise. We waiting as the first rays of sunlight made... More

We went there for sunrise but unfortunately it was raining a lot. Even though we missed out on nice colourful sunrise we still loved every part of it. I guess the thing that amazes the most is how old, big and glorious it is!

The biggest temple in the region. Unfortunately it was overcast every day so there was no sunrise photos for me. Still amazing to see it and my photos are amazing. Get there super early to avoid crowds.

Everything I hoped & expected from carvings to the quality of work from a history lovers standpoint. Steep steps can be intimidating but accessible now they have wooden steps carrying you over the entry ways. Conservation is at work to update & protect the iconic Angkor Wat which is good. HOT.... My best advice as per previous entries is purchase... More

Truly remarkable temple. Must be seen at sunrise and sunset. You can purchase a ticket at 5pm in the evening that is good for the next day so you can experience both. Definitely not to be missed

I have been fortunate and travelled widely. After Angkor Wat and the extended surrounding temple complexes simply nothing can compare. No temple or national monument will ever take your breath away again because simply it is not Angkor Wat. I visited a few years back taking 5 days in Siem Reap as part of an Asian tour. We bought a... More

Absolutely awesome experience. The stonework and carvings are truly memorable. Having a knowledgeable guide to show you around is a must.

I simply cannot describe in words the beauty of these ruins. The temples are under restoration and there still is a long way to go but the beauty has not faded. The maintenance of these temples are superb. For the first time, I felt that the USD 20 paid towards entrance fee is worth it. Not a single plastic bag/bottle... More
