Home to Angkor Wat, 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.

The angkor temples are amazing. The place is absolutely massive and the temples beautiful. Unfortunately the entrance prices are quite high and there is way to many tourists going to the temples. This kinda ruins the serenity of the place.

You can't go to this part of the world and not check out Angkor Wat. A day pass is $20 and worth every penny. Hire a guide and driver ahead of time. Our hotel arranged us a half day tour to Angkor Wat and Angkor Tom with guide and tuk tuk for $50. Worth every penny to get the story,... More

On a very rainy day in Siem reap I was thinking what to do. So I went to the Siem reap Angkor national museum . After buying my entrance ticket I paid for an English audio head set. Inside you will find a well laid out system well set up for a self tour . Main areas along your tour... More

What some people refer to as Angkor Wat is really the Angkor Archaeological Park consisting of the Angkor Wat temple, the Angkor Thom city (with multiple attractions including the Bayon Temple, Terrace of the Elephants, Phimeanakas Temple, the very attractive Gates at moat crossings and much more), and a bunch of other temple ruins including the Tomb Raider shot location....

The whole park is a wonder! Temples, lakes etc. no wonder it is on the world heritage list as it is clearly one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world. Compares with Pompeii, Machu Picchu etc for its significance to human kinds ancient brilliance.

I've done individual reviews for the temples I have reviewed and leave this for a few general tips: 1 - Angkor is a must see destination - go - you will be hot, sweaty and hotter and sweatier, but it is worth it, do pack a hat and an umbrella. Even if it is not raining the umbrella can help... More

This place was far better that the high expectations we had. Mainly because of the sheer number of vast temple complexes on offer beyond just the famour Angkor Watt. We were unsure of the best itinerary, but based on what we did and what we wished we could do, I'd suggest the following. Spend 2.5 to 3 days - buy... More

I also noted that there's a serious lack of monkeys. A few folks were on the roadside keeping them fed so tourist could see a few monkeys. Most have been poached and their numbers are few now.
