MEMORABLE EXPERIECE
Aug 2020
This is one of the most amazing ancient sites I have ever been to. Its incredible temple, awe-inspiring, spirit-lifting, mind-enhancing site. So much history to this place, and the guides are so knowledgeable and friendly. Thank to our tour guide which is Mr. Vannak is very professional and he brought us around to Angkor wat. I was also able to see on my two eyes the very famous place where the movie Angkor wat tomb raiders took place was the movie of Miss Angelina Jolie.

My Tripadvisor Experience
Mar 2021 • Friends
I was required to start my own travel and name and it.It was good and i enjoyed.Tripadavisor had given me opportunity to think for a suitable word and attractive to the travellers and try to be unique because there are already some names that exists.I also had to choose a picture that will go with my Travel title.

I recommend you all to take part because i had a great time while creating my own travel because i had a platform to look at the most attractive places around the worl.So take the opportunity you won't regret.

An unforgettable experience
Mar 2020
My wife and I visited Siem Reap, as part of a 17day trip through Vietnam and Cambodia, where we were travelling with 10 other people. The tour was with G-Adventures and so the visit to Angkor Wat / Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm was prearranged by them, including a local guide to give us a high level of specific history and knowledge.

The entire experience is, without doubt, one of the most wonderful I have ever had on my travels. This review is specifically for Angkor Wat, though our trip included Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom / Bayon Temple, which I’ll review separately.

There is very little that I could write here, which has not been written many times before, so I’ll stick to personal experience and give advice based on that. I will also upload many photos from this visit.

The main points of advice I would give would be: Firstly, try to go with a guide, as the specific information they can provide is invaluable. Secondly, read as much information as you can before you visit, so you have an idea of the areas you wish to focus on. Thirdly, try, if you can, to get there well before sunrise, in order to benefit from the fabulous views across the lake, making for amazing photos of Angkor Wat reflected in the small lake as the sun rises behind the temple. Our group set off from the hotel at 04:00am to achieve this and, much as that might sound ridiculously early, it is worth it to beat the crowds and get a good spot for taking photos. Please feel free to check the photos I’ve posted for examples of those early views.

Awsome! You will need 3 days trip.
Take a tuk tuk for 20 dollars. Stay only 4 hours. Choose early morning pick late afternoon about 4pm.

Between 12 and 4 pm is too hot for the babies.

Suggested itinerary

This place is simply unbelievable. Angkor Wat itself is absolutely huge and the number of temples in the wider area is staggering.
To get the most from your visit you must plan it in advance. We decided which temples were our 'must see' then planned an itinerary around it.
Day 1 Ta Prohm, Ta Nei, Angkor Thom - Victory Gate, Terrace of the Leper King, Terrace of the Elephants, Bayon
Day 2 Angkor Wat, Preah Khan, Ta Som

There is simply so much to do and see.

Transport - we arrived on the evening so got a Tuk Tuk into Siem Reach itself. Our driver was very accommodating and extremely cheap so we asked for a quote for his exclusive use over the following 2 days. We ended up giving him double what he asked for as was still good value for us. This gives you the freedom to decide which temples you want to visit and decide how long you want to stay. We toured the temples from early morning to early afternoon when it got too hot so we retired to the hotel pool.

We decided not to get up for sunrise at Angkor Wat but we still got some amazing photos as the sun was still rising so didn't feel we missed out

Only wish we'd decided to stay for an extra night
