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. « less

The Ancient builders of these temples were genius. The created huge structures with beautiful design. It seems a mystery how they built it several centuries ago using ancient technologies. The locals are conservative and don't allow shorts and sleeveless inside their temples anyway scarf for rent are available outside for a minimal fee ( i forgot the exact amount). The... More

I was only there for a couple hours, but I couple have been there so much longer! I got to see 2 other temples in the area in addition to Angkor Wat, and They were all different and amazing. Only down side was the number of people there, not crazy, but still a little crowded. Worth seeing. Note: I think... More

We biked out from our hotel to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat. Totally worth it. It makes for an early morning, but you'll beat the heat and the crowds. Many bus tours come, watch the sunrise and then leave. If you enter the temple right after sunrise most tours and crowds will have headed off to breakfast to return... More

It's been a long time dream to visit this place, and seeing it with my own eyes and going inside is so overwhelming. I went there twice to witness both the sunrise and the sunset. The sunrise is my favorite. It's just wow! If you want to see the sunrise, make sure to get up early, your tuktuk driver should... More

Angkor is quite big as there are a lot of temples in the complex. Some are super crowded which is pity and certainly takes away some of the charm. I took a tour which was the best thing to do. There is a lot of ground to cover and best go with someone who knows what temple gets busier when.

Angkor Wat is just as breath-taking as everybody describes. It's best seen at sunrise or sunset. Not just because it lends for the most awesome pictures. You want to start first thing in the morning before traffic begins to snarl and the sun is baking hot. And you can't go wrong with sunset lighting. DO wear long pants (and no... More

This was an amazing world, so imense, so well sculptured!! I would advise to take a tuk-tuk there from your hotel & have him wait while you go from one temple to another. I would advise to be there extremely early in the morning due to the high temperatures. Also, you should hire a local guide to fully understand the... More
