Travelled in late May 2015 when the weather is hot and the madding crowds are minimal. Would strongly recommend going off-peak. We were left at some sites almost on our own to marvel at the architecture and history. I’d strongly recommend Vannak Tour Guide and visiting outside of peak season. With relatively so few other tourists and a great guide... More

This is the world's largest religious site and it is spectacular. The architectural design is amazing as are the reliefs that are in many areas of the temple. It will take about 3-4 hours to walk around and see everything. If you feel like walking up the steep stairs in one of the towers you will get to see a... More

Proof of human capability 1000 years ago. And it looks like they buitt to last. Learning that a temple made out of rock was built on marsh land but kept floating by water pressure surprised me. NIce carvings on all the walls

It was such an amazing experience to go to this temple complex. We did the whole complex in two days (although we could have used an extra day to see the outskirts). We definitely recommend that you get a guided tour for the main temple complex as understanding how the temple came to be added that much more to our... More

Amazing ancient temple,I guess people should see it by own eyes at least once in a life. The pool with lotus in front of the temple was the best site to see both sunrise and sunset.

The temple was very busy when we visited it in April 2015. Our guide took us in via the back entrance, this was a less busy approach to the temple and we were able have some aspects of the temple explained to us without being caught up in a large amount of people. Once we reached the main attractions of... More

We went there at 5:30 am for the sunrise, and were AMAZED. There will be a lot of people taking pictures, but the crowd is still a lot smaller at this time, than from 8am~the afternoon. The top floor of ankorwat opens from 7:40 so its best to be the first group to go in so you don't have to... More
