About
Angkor Wat, the one of the largest religious complexes in the world, and a stunning array of 9th to 13th century temples built by the kings of the Khmer Empire. The Angkor Archaeological Park is breathtaking, and still the principal draw for every visitor to Siem Reap.

So much has already been written about Angkor, its overwhelming beauty, majesty and magic! It is unique and should not be missed by anyone! However, visiting "Angkor Archaeological Park" (a temple complex and the largest religious monument in the world, measuring approximately 162,6 hectares) is no easy task. It is generally quite warm and humid and there is a lot of walking and climbing. It means you must be in a very good physical shape to endure such tiring and long journey! To enter the park you will need an "Angkor Pass", that is sold for "One Day" (US$37), "Three Days" (US$62 - valid for 10 days from the issue date and you can choose any three days within the period) and "Seven Days" (US$72 - valid for 30 days from the issue date and you can choose any seven days within the period). For standard travelers, I would say three days are just perfect. The hotels in Siem Reap are generally awesome and you can always take a day or two off to enjoy the lovely pools and massage spas, or even doing some shopping in the local traditional markets before returning to the Park. Some items are important to bring with you - comfortable shoes for walking and climbing, light clothes, a hat or cap, sunglasses, sunblock, mosquito repellent, water and, during the rainy season, a raincoat. Hiring a professional guide and transportation are also highly recommended. You are now all set for accomplishing a dream! A trip that will certainly stay forever in your dearest memories! Enjoy!

Ankor area can be compared to pyramids in Egypt or Mexico or Machu Pichu in Peru. Magnificient temples and interesting history. So, if you are in Cambodza, don’t miss this. It’s worth a separate stop even if you were traveling in neibougring countries like Thailand.

We arranged a tuktuk to drive us around the area for one day and tell a little about each place. That was enough for us (and especially for kids), although many people say that sunrises and sunsets are must and many people tour the area for several days. Tuktuks can be found on front of every hotel.

This location is one of those that everyone has to experience once in their lives.... The stone work and carvings of the Temple will blow you away, as will the roots of the untouched tree roots that still grow above the ground between the large blocks of stone.... A wonderful Historical experience.

While many visitors to Cambodia will not surprisingly immediately equate the country to the Angkor Wat temple and others may conjure up images of the Ta Prohm temple used in filming Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie, in actuality, this UNESCO World Heritage site encompasses over 400 square kilometers with hundreds of temples, ancient structures and monuments. We only visited some 25 sites but literally took hundreds of photos. However, rather than post reviews for each of the attractions we visited, we have chosen to simply provide an overview of primary temples and ancient buildings. There are more than a sufficient number of reviews and photos for specific Angkor attractions already here on Trip Advisor.

We purchased an Angkor World Heritage Pass for $62USD which was valid for use any three days within ten days from date of purchase. They take your picture which is imprinted on the pass, so it is non-transferable...and also serves as a great souvenir. Unless you are a temple junkie, three days is more than ample time to experience all of the Park's highlights. We made the good decision to retain a reputable tour guide, who also provided all transportation from and back to our hotel. Not to be missed of course are the Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm temples, as well as Angkor Thom City and its Bayon, Baphoun and Phimeanakas temples and remnants of the Royal Palace. Although a bit farther out from the primary cluster of Angkor temples, Banteay Srey was beautiful and well worth the 30-minute ride. There are a myriad of smaller, but no less impressive, temples to visit. Some of the ones which we enjoyed most were Bateay Samre, Ta Som, Pre Rup, Preah Khan, Neak Pean and Mebon temples. At varying points during our second and third days, there really was complete saturation and a return to our hotel pool for snacks, beverages and some relaxation was necessary. We also opted not to tour for three days in a row and instead were able to take a day off to do other Siem Reap exploration. However, make no mistake, as much as you choose to experience of Angkor Archaeological Park, it is well worth the time and effort. In this review, multiple photos of the temples are included for your viewing. Enjoy!

I can’t believe some people are rating the Angkor Archaeological Park as “poor” or “terrible” and doing not much more than complaining about the cost and the crowds. I feel sorry for them if that’s all they got out of their visit. So many more people are travelling now days and I’m struggling to think of a heritage site anywhere in the world that isn’t crowded. And they certainly aren’t free. People need to do their research, know what they want to get out of their visit, and plan accordingly. If you go there for one day, you’re going to be taken to the big three – Angkor Wat, Bayon & Ta Prohm, along with 80% of the rest of the tourists, and you will be just another face in the crowd. If you get a 3-day pass, you can plan to visit some of the lesser known temples which are just as nice but far less crowded. For example, we visited Ta Nei which is accessed down a dirt track only minutes from Ta Prohm. Ta Nei had 2 other people there the whole time we were there where as Ta Prohm had a line of 30+ people just to take a photo in front of a view. And yet, Ta Nei is every bit as wild and overgrown as Ta Prohm. Also, don’t be afraid to venture further out. There are some amazing sites within a 2-hour drive of Siem Reap that most people don’t make the effort to go to. Koh Ker and Beng Melea come to mind, both are amazing and both are pretty much devoid of tourists. I love the Angkor Archaeological Park, have been there twice, and already thinking about my next visit.

You will see many amazing sights when you visit Angkor Wat and the surrounding areas, but most impressive are the ruins, some 800 years old or more and the foliage, jungle and trees actually growing out of and through the stone blocks. There has been little done to preserve the site so be careful walking thru the area, but the sights are well worth the journey. There have been some walks built, I believe by the Indian government to help you walk thru, but it is very minor in regard to the total temple and the preservation that needs to be done.

I loved this temple and all the beautiful trees - old and so much character. It’s just amazing how these tree trunks can live for so many years. I enjoyed this temple as much as Angkor Wat.

UNESCO sure knows how to pick them. The group of temples in the Park is amazing. Incredible scale and unbelievable stone carvings. We visited several of the most important temples and thought they were all amazing.
