I don't think one can appreciate this place unless you are personally there. No pictures, films, movies, or description can do this justice. Just go Visit! This is not a ONE day tour. You need more time, to experience, to explore, to imagine. I would suggest hiring a guide. The guides can point out the highlight, and make history come... More

We went to angkor wat early in the morning to view the sunrise and we were not disappointed, it was magnificent, there were a lot of tourist, be very careful of some locals who will offer you some incense when you enter the place, after giving you the incense and "praying" for you, be ready to shell out 10$!!!!

Angkor Wat is the one of the largest temples in the world. It gives awesome opportuniny to touch ancient khmer culture, and to see the pinnacle of khmer architecture in all its beauty. The best time to see the temple is dawn. You can behold how the sun rises above the ancient structures and lotus flowers open their buds. Moreover,... More

Despite the crowds Angkor Wat is superb. You need to be fit. We walked at least 7kms per day just going around temples. Try to ignore the idiots ignoring the direction signs and trying to go against the flow.

We went as early as 5a.m. to watch the sunrise and the view of the Angkor Wat was breathtaking. The change in the of the sky is absolutely amazing. I can assure that you will never regret waking up so early just for the sunrise at Angkor Wat. Do look at sky filled with stars. You might just spot a... More

Pretty cool to see all the reliefs carved into the walls and such. I am not a huge fan of walking around temples, but it was still nice. It is (obviously) very busy, which takes away from the sights a bit, and there are lots of people trying to get you to buy things, but it was worth the visit.

This is a huge structure. We enjoyed walking around and learning the history of Angkor Wat. We hired Sao You Eng from Cambodia Angkor Jungle Tour to show us Siem Reap and he was great! Very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and full of historical fact as well as knowing the best photo vantage points. I would definitely recommend him as a... More

We got up early to join the crowds for sunrise at Angkor Wat. It was a cool experience but a huge challenge for pictures as sunrise back-lights the temple. So for experience go in the morning. For pictures I recommend sunset because it front lights the temple.

We did two sunrises at Angkor Wat. Was a great experience. The grandeur of these temples is amazing. You can experience this sunrise from many spots around the temples. Don't necessarily follow the big crowds. Lots of great viewpoints, we found a spot less crowded to the right with an amazing reflection for great pictures. Also explore the back entrance... More

These temples are amazing and would love to return and visit again. Well worth reading up on the history before you visit.
