Owner description: Angkor Wat, in its beauty and state of preservation, is unrivaled. 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.

It's a pity that many visitors either lack the time, the patience or the interest to walk the full length of the galleries containing the bas-relief of the Mahabharata. It well repays the time and effort! The relative peace enjoyed while strolling the galleries was somewhat diminished by the crowds thronging the upper levels, who appeared simply to have climbed...

Despite hoards of other early risers, this is a must. A perfect sunrise, it has to be one of the wonders of the world. After sunrise, when many people leave, take time to explore - fewer people and cooler temperature make climbing the steps to the third level more comfortable. Note, for the third level, don't forget - no hats... More

Amazing place!! You'll have to spend about 2 days to see most of the temples in the whole complex. Angkor and Ta Phrom are the most amazing from all. The place is very crowded, but I understand it perfectly - everybody want to see this place! You can feel the history there~!

We started our visit in the rain which drove away some of the tourists. The sight was massive and impressive and the history and construction especially compeling. A beautiful sight!

Angkor Wat is a temple in a site that contains a large amount of other temples, making it a very interesting place of ancient ruins. It is very atmospheric and gives a real feel for the period.

A must see of course. Need to find the right time to enjoy this world heritage site. Apparently, hundreds other tourists had the same idea to watch the sunrise over the Angkor Wat.

Like many i's inspired to visit Angkor Wat after watching the movie Tomb rider, but this place hold much more than that. As an Indian i could relate to many of the sculpture & temple carving which are from the hindu mythology. You can take a three day pass or a one day pass to visit the temple compound but... More

A bit overrun with bus loads of tourists. We took a tuk tuk very early to see the dawn but. Spent more time watching the crowds. Back areas are beautiful. My friend had her expensive glasses stolen by a juvenile delinquent monkey who ripped them right off her face, lanyard and all!

Compared to Tomb Rider the temple itself did not get me. But, of course, it is a wonderful monument. In another hand I had a great experience watching the sun rise from the yard and getting a blessing prayer from a holly man inside the temple. This is something most part of the guides and tourists' reviews say and I... More

We visited Angkor Wat twice - once around 10am and then again the following day at 5:45am. It was much better the second time around. At 10am, it was very hot and busy. We enjoyed exploring but it was hard to avoid the hordes. At 5:45am, everyone was starting to wake up. There were other people there, but not nearly... More
