- Angkor Wat l8ved up to all expectations plus some. I wasnt aware that it was part of a huge temple complex that covered many kilometres. We did the dawn tour and it was stunning. Be aware that if you have mobility issues it is a nearly 4km walk from the front gate to the temple and back. All of the other sites you can drive to and just walk around.
But it was definitely worth it.
Tips. Take a guided tour or hire a guide when you get there. There is no information so you rely on guides to keep you informed.Written September 14, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This one appeals to me since it features four faces.I move from one Temple to another in this complex via walking.For this one, I put in around three hours.Written September 5, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- By far the most amazing temple-the tree roots are amazing--they grow everywhere out of the rocks--some of the trees are like rooms--fascinating!Written September 13, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, this tenth century temple is the only one I visited that was not consecrated by a king. Rather, its construction is credited to a Braham (probably named Yajnavaraha) who served as a tutor to Jayavarman V. It is noteworthy in many ways, chief among those that it is carved from a type of red sandstone that can be manipulated like wood. The building was subject to further reconstruction later in the Angkor Empire and fell into disuse probably sometime in the fourteenth century. It was rediscovered in the 20th century and became the first temple to be restored with a technique (anastylosis) that follows the original architectural elements as closely as possible.
I visited after a forty minute drive from Siem Reap at the end of my second day of touring the local temples. The footprint of the temple complex is small, I can’t quote any exact numbers but you won’t be intimidated by the size. A tour here is therefore fairly straightforward, and after entering through the causeway via the East Gate, we admired the East Gopura before entering the inner courtyard and second entrance tower. The second and then first enclosures were visited somewhat simultaneously with more attention paid to the sanctuaries and shrines. We left via the West Gopura and Gate, walking around the grounds and listening to a group of instrumentalists before departing. Total time on site was 90 minutes.
Overall, along with Angkor Wat and Preah Vihear this was a highlight of my time during my two weeks in Cambodia. The reasoning here is equally definitive and simple: the artistry is literally second to none. I’m not even an aficionado of this type of experience and struggle somewhat to appreciate any ancient structure, but this building was an exception to the rule for me. Even as I write this almost eight weeks after the experience the images are indelible: the carving of Kala, the fight between Vali and Sugriva, and “just” the ornamental pediments were spectacular.
My advice? If you have a single day in the area see Angkor Wat and maybe Ta Prohm and then make a trip here. Absolutely unforgettable.Written September 20, 2023
- I have not many things to say. In few words, one of the best temple I have visited ever. In my opinion, this place deserves a visit almost once in life.Written August 27, 2023
- 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.Written July 19, 2023
- Really went to Pub street during the day because I was looking for the market.
There are lots of pubs and bars, many lights and color....too much for me🙃. I did not liked very much the place because it is close to 2 hospitals and you can see people on the streets waiting to be attended, and homeless.
Really think there are better places to go in Chiang Mai as nice restaurants or even the night market near the old wall.Written August 4, 2023
- Been to this temple six times on three separate visits to Siem Reap,it seems to have a very special feeling different to all the others,I allways get dropped off at the East gate and walk through and picked up at the West gate,it is a long walk but so worth it.I find the area around the south gate the most peacefull as not many visitors make it there,Will visit again I am sure next time I a in town.Written September 14, 2023
- We used Daniel for two days. One trip to the temples and another to floating village.
Both trips were great and he was super helpful.
He was also always very alert for pickups, looking for us so we didn’t get confused.
Would highly recommend.Written September 14, 2023
- Large temple on north side of Bayon temple,approached by long walkway over dry moat,walkway very impressive for the number of supporting pillars,It is possible to climb to the top of this temple on the wooden stairs that are very steep and may put some less mobile people off.Great view from the top,worth the climb,impressive for it's size.Written September 12, 2023
- It was a great trip in Siem Reap and that wouldn’t have been possible without Mr. Seng good company . He is a great person , very humble and good at speaking English. He was on time in the hotel to pick up and promptly waited in every places with a distance of a whatsapp message away. He also helped us to find a great restaurant with good local food in an affordable cost. He has a very good knowledge about Cambodia and history/ geographical around Cambodia. He explained everything in a calm and polite manner during the travel when visiting a temple place . On our final day, we apt for a floating village trip and he also accompanied with us in a local boat . He explained the culture of the village and fishing industry . It is planned to go father in the lake to experience the lake atmosphere but he instructed the driver to take a turn about as the wind is so heavy with a high tides . He is so nice , trustable and take care of his customer . Thank you Seng !Written September 8, 2023
- It is the first temple of our tour trip and it is wonderful with art on the walls, but you should take care during you are using the stairs to the top of temple.Written April 4, 2023
- This is the third time I have been to Siem Reap but never visited the Rolus group before as they are some distance from the others.This temple Bakonk is the most impressive of the group also being one of the oldest in the area.I went first thing in the morning and not to many other tourists there,may get bussier later,best of group.Written September 18, 2023
- The detail to the elephants was quite incredible. Looks well restored and easy to find in Angkor thom after Bayon temple. Well worth a stop to have a look around.Written May 26, 2023
- Banteay Kdei
A smaller temple not too far from Angkor Wat but really gorgeous, a lot to see here if you take your time to walk around. Set in the forest, it is cooler in here as the trees give shade and block the heat. There are traditional musicians playing at the entrance and the sounds of their instruments float all through the place, really lovelyWritten July 29, 2023
