Owner description: 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.

Reviewed September 13, 2013

Of course you have come to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat and it lives up to the excitment. Just bring lots of water and patience for dealing with the heat and people selling you things everywhere you turn.

“Beyond what I imagined”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Now I know why so many people flock to Angkor Wat. Even after reading and seeing hundreds of photos of the area I still could not imagine the space and the history you can witness by visiting this site. Definitely worth the effort to get there.

“Huge and impressive”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I decided to spend 3 days/4 night in Siem Reap in order to visit all the main temples within Angkor Archaeological Park and it was really worth it! Apart from Angor Wat (which is great) I didn't know what to expect for and I've been very surprised by the amazing fascinating atmosphere that you can feel there. Although there are so many temples and at the end of the 3rd day you can start thinking "one more temple", all temples are very different. All of them are in good shape, the maintenance is perfect and in general the staff preserve and takes care of the area in a perfect way. Also the less famous temples are very fascinating, with vegetation growing on the ruins (but being kept under control) adding charm to the place. I only recommend to avoid the elephant ride and the sunset: too crowded and frankly speaking not much to see, not worth the long wait, the effort to climb the hill/temple and the crowd.

“Worth the explore”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Exploring the park can be done in many ways (big route, small route, combine etc) provided you can get a driver to bring you around and agree on a price prior to the trip. Start at sunrise as it is still cool and if you're lucky, you'll catch a lovely show of lights. There are many temples to explore. They may seem similar but on closer look, each carries their own specialty. It's amazing how "ancient" civilization are able to built such structures. I enjoy going around in a tuktuk but if you're fit, a bicycle is also enjoyable during the cooler months

“Excellent place to visit.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Take your time in seeing this wonderful wonders of world.
Start early in the morning, it gets very hot during the day, wear comfortable shoes and take plenty of water.
