One of those rare moments in life where something genuinely lives up to its hype. I was overcome by its tranquility. A wonder of the world - the jewel of Cambodia.

Simply breathtaking, both the morning sunrise and the temple itself. Stay outside the actual temple for the sunrise, by far less crowded and offers a better view of the event. Temple itself is magnificent in terms of the architecture and construction considering the age and time of when it was built. Go into the temple later in the day (not... More

Despite the multitudes who line up along the waterside to catch the dawn, its still worth being there to see it and then walk around the temple. Do get a guide to give you a good sense of the history of the place. The queue to get to the top storey was 45 mins long and we had to abort... More

Although absolutely lovely it failed to live up to my expectations. Look the complex is huge but failed to deliver on WOW factor. Went there in the afternoon and were not many tourists. There is better artwork on other temples.

Ther are enough reviews already. Just some advises. For the Bas-Relief in the central Building you need a guide (even you did internet reseach before). Otherwise you miss a lot. Don't go for the Central Tower eary morning, There is still the people from watching sunrise, so you got long lines because the number of visitors up there is limited.... More

Must see the bass relief on the outer walls.,Climb up to the sancto sanctum before you explore the temple, as lines although fast moving can be long. This temple is one of the best examples of Hinduism.

Arrived at 530 to watch the sunrise, was a little too cloudy so it wasn't great!! But oh well you win some you lose some I guess! Amazing how many people were there that early! Angkor Wat itself is cool, spent a few hours wandering around. The 1 day pass ($20) was fine for us!

This is of course the must-see of the temples. It's majestic, grand and impressive. Remember to cover shoulders and knees. Try to get there around time when there are less tourists. It's an impressive place but many tourist do not know to value its beauty and history. We had the best possible guide and that made a huge difference -... More

If you want a front spot, away from the iPads and selfie sticks you need to be at the entrance to Angkor Wat by 4.45am.
