It was recommended before you book a tour at Angkor Wat, you'll need to study their history first. Goto their National Musuem or Youtube it... If you dont, you will Be really lost and wasting your time on some of the temples/wats. And it is always best to arrange with your hotel for the tuk tuk tour at Angkot Wat.... More

There is a reason for the hype. Take the time to visit, no matter the weather or time of day. From the outside the temple doesn't look as spectacular as some of the others in the area but it is well worth it once you get to the top. Spectacular.

We had a great time exploring the temples in spite of the heat. Best to plan for a 3 day trip. We only went for a day and did the inner temples. Great primer for another trip back.

Got there for sunrise but it was cloudy because of rainy season. Still worth it for the experience though! Take a torch!

Definitely worth the early rise to watch the sunrise over Ankor Wat before exploring this amazing place. To get the best out of your visit, suggest you have a guide with you, it brings the place to life

Astonishing achievement in engineering. You will need 2 days to get lost in the temples and really take it in. Sun rises behind Angkor so you can't take decent pics in the morning. Start with the other sites (less tourists) and leave Angkor for PM (less tourists).

Angkor Wat is one of the most fabulous monument that i have ever seen.It was much more beautiful than that i have seen in the pics, i have heard that many travellers used to visit this temple during early morning to see the sunrise,unfortunately we were not able to make it.I would strongly suggest you to read some guide books...

This place is incredible. I know we've seen it in pictures and movies, but to see it in person gives you the perspective of how massive the architecture actually is. I stood in amazement.
