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

This place is massive. Pretty amazing for something so old. We got dropped off at the back for the sunset which meant no one was in our photos. The driver thought we were silly but it was nice not to be flooded with people to start with and unless you have a brilliant camera the sunset photos looking into the... More

As amazing as everyone says. Go in June or July to avoid the crowds of the high season (December - January).

Got up at 4 am to see the sun rise here and then we went back for breakfast. After a couple of hours we went back to the temple to climb to the top. A bit of a struggle at our age, but we made it and the view was worth the effort.

Its hard to fathom that this large structure was built so long ago and has such a rich history. I would recommend getting a tour guide, some have good english some not so good. But its all apart of the fun.

This temple is very fantastic especially in the morning for sun rise. I took many photo here and will share to all my friend on Facebook. Would recommend it to others to visit green town, Angkor Wat Temple.

Brilliant, huge, magnificent. Real Wow factor. Hard to find words to describe. Take lots of water coz it's hot humid and lots of walking & exploring to be done. Just do it!

of course this is the name and the draw. We did it in half a day and felt that was ample. We avoided the sunrise and sunset crowds by getting to the temple for 8:00. It was perfect.

After visiting quite a number of temples, Angkor Wat is not that exceptional anymore. Just average. Its only advantage is it's being first in the itinerary because of its proximity to the entrance. Be careful in ascending the stairs because it is steep

Fantastic place, especially at sunrise when it is a bit quieter and you get the best views. You can climb on all the ruins. We bought the 3 day pass which was maybe a bit too long as you stop appreciating the wonderful ruins, but on the other hand we still didnt see everything in there. A must go.

you cannot miss the sunrise!!! and you must be at the right spot to view the sunrise. A lot of people went to the wrong place and missed the experience. Heard that the sunrise on the 21 march and 21 Sept are the best as the rising sun is aligned with the 3 angkor towers.
