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.

    A memory of a lifetime
    The sheer magnificence of this area must be seen to be believed and appreciated. The care and dedication to the craft is so evident in the buildings and temples throughout the park. The carvings tell the story of the area as well as any book. The one thing any overseas visitor must do is to obtain the services of a good guide to get you around and to maximise your time in the park (ours was brilliant). There is not much to be said about Angkor Wat or the park that has not already been said apart from go and visit a wonder of the world that does not disappoint.

    Bucket list must
    A bucket list must! You have made it to Cambodia, surely this is why you came? Note: the ticket office is separate to the park, consider buying your ticket the evening before if you want to see the sun rise at Angkor Wat. Be sure to get there as early as you can, its worth it. You will need transportation around the park as it is VAST. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and be sure to have sunscreen and plenty of water. Do a little research beforehand to get the most of the trip. Yes the place gets busy and the locals want to sell you their wares but for most people this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself into something totally unique.

    Fantastic.Wonder of the world
    The Angkor archaeological complex is a World Heritage Site and one of the wonders of the modern world. Absolutely fabulous Huge area with a varied set of temples spread out. A journey to the ancient Khmer world. Some of the temples are in ruins, others are undergoing rehabilitation and others are better preserved. It's a pity that thousands of tourists are unaware of the complex's cultural richness and behave inappropriately.

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.

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!

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.

Beautiful structure and amazing piece of jewel. It was amazing and really admired the Khmer ancestors who create it. During our trip although a lot of guests visited but our guide manage to find the quiet place for our group. Highly recommend and will come back next time during rainy season as it will be greener. The price of admission is high but consider the job of maintaining it, and some of the fee goes to children hospital, I think it fair.

See you again Angkor.

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.

Fantastic place! I went the day before by bicycle (hired) to get my day ticket which allowed me in that evening to see the sunset
Then on the day. I left the hotel at 5 and cycled for sunrise at the largest temple and the view was incredible

Then I cycled round the park, its not a huge distance.. Saw the monkeys and all the temples I wanted to see

I only had a single day ticket and it was enough, I had plenty of spare time to relax and read my book by the water

The Angkor Archaeological Park is quite simply one of the best places I have been to. So many fascinating sites to look at. Exploring to do. The beaten track to go off. The entry ticket is amazingly good value, and ensures the maintenance of the Park, as well as facilities which support visitors, such as the Restrooms which are near all of the more-visited temples.

It so so amazing to see the great work which has been done by many dedicated people over the years to ensure that the Park can be visited.

I look forward to it's continued preservation.

Love the trees and the history everywhere.

Please dress appropriately and don't shout at the top of your voice like the chinese groups!

It was the only thing that ruined some of the tour, wish people would respect that there are others that do know how to behave an appreciate the history and beauty without having to have a thousand photos on top of or in front of it each so nobody else can even see something.

Worth going just may need to be patient.
