We bought our 3 day passes after 5pm and were able to catch the sunset at Angkor Wat without scratching off a day of our pass. Although it was a bit crowded the sunset was amazing and the grounds wee a great way to spend time. We went back on another day to get a wider view of the temple... More

The temple is largely a ruin and it is difficult to see what is would have looked like. Curiously, there is a large model in Ho Chi Min City which would have been more useful at the temple site.

One of the wonders of the world, incredible, expect a lot of climbing steep stairs and steps but well worth the effort

The best archaeological site and temple I will ever go to. A must if you are in the area and read up on it or get a guide at the site when you arrive to get the full impact of this magical place.

That's why people come to Cambodia- to see this miracle. I was more impressed than I was in Egypt when I saw the pyramids for the first time. It' s beyond words.

People climbing over the ancient ruins to get photos and masses of tours and groups spoil this magnificent place - a victim of its own beauty and success.

Angkor Wat is a destination for a reason. There is nothing quite like it. It is beautiful and truly unique. Two cautions - there is a great deal of walking, and it can be very hot for much of the year. Wear really good shoes.

Make sure you don't miss Angkor Wat... you will need to allow a good hour or 2 to ensure that you get to take in the beauty of this place! This is one of my favourite temples in Siem Reap! It is a short drive from Siem Reap and most people seem to go by Tuk Tuk however we opted... More

Highly recommend to tour the temple with a professional guide so they can share the stories about the budda, the statues and carvings with you. With this, we respect the builders more and were marveled at the steepness of the steps leading onto the top of the temples. Absolutely the masterpiece among all the temples @ siem reap.

Yes- It is crowded and you will fight through 100's of selfie sticks to get nice pics, but it is well worth it. Despite the mass of humanity fighting to get in the main entrance, once inside there is more than enough room to move and get a good perspective, as long as you don't mind leaving the main walkways...
