We went to the sunrise and it was spectacular, We then went back to tour around in the afternoon. Try to visit in the morning as it was very hot. Walk up to the top as the views are amazing and just walking around the whole area is great.

This world heritage site should be on everyone's list of must sees.The site is beautiful and one can do the tour at his/her leisure.The temple is huge and does take a good deal of walking to see in its entirety. We have done a sunset and sunrise viewing. We recommend the sunrise if it is not pouring! Stunning!!

Take a tuk tuk. Hire a guide. Pace it yourself. Don't miss, or skip because you may feel it is all the same. It's not. Amazing.

Just inform yourself of local customs, and you'll be fine. Ignore them and you won't be permitted access to the most beautiful part of Angkor Wat.

We visited Angkor Wat with a guide and we were glad that we did. The place is so big and has so much history. We went to some beautiful place. We didn't see every nook and crannie but what we saw was great.

We planned our visit to arrive in the dark before sunrise and had our breath taken away by the mystery and majesty of the temple appearing out of the darkness as the sun rose. The tour buses arrive around 0900 so enjoy the tranquillity of the dawn with the place (almost) to your selves.

Its hot as hell.here, but you'll ignore it while you marvel at this magnificent structure! Its well maintained by the authorities, but beware of touts on tuktuks who'd overcharge you. Get a... More

What an amazing place to watch the sunrise. This is one is my favorite places on earth. So magical. Bring school supplies to the children. They are very thankful.
