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

Coming to Siem Reap, visiting the famous Angkor Wat is a must. Though do take note, don't come during rainy season if you want a good view of the sunset/sunrise. I took my chances so all I got was clouds. The magnificent Angkor Wat will leave one breathless though it might be better if tourists don't touch the wall sculptures... More

Quite an amazing wonder of the world. It is on a oar with the temples and pyramids of Egypt. You just don't see anything this awe inspiring in Europe. The precision of the construction is amazing and to think it was hidden by jungle for centuries before being rediscovered. Well worth the trip to siem reap

You must put this place on your bucket list! It was truly magical and a visual feast of culture, sacrament and joy. A World Heritage and treasure, the people of Siem Reap and Angkor Wat are as much a treasure as their ancient landscapes.

This was an amazing experience. Our group arrived at about 4:15 am which was perfect, everything was pitch black but we were able to grab perfect spots to take photos . A lot of groups arrive 4:30-4:45 so I really recommend getting there early. Bring solid shoes to climb as the best photos and views are at the top of... More

When you are in Siem Reap, a visit to the Angkor Wat is a MUST! 1 day pass is about US$20 and for 3 day pass is about $60. Your photo will be printed on the ticket and you need to show to the staff each time you enter a new temple. To avoid losing it, i would suggest maybe... More

Go early in the morning. The afternoon heat can be a bit overwhelming. Sunrise was perfect for us. We were leaving as the crowds were coming.

This is the largest/most intact/restored etc of the temples I believe. If this is the only one you have time to see then this would be the best choice. Ta Prohm is amazing also. Recommend a private properly licensed tour guide. Again, pictures don't cut it, you have to see it in person
