A group of us travelled from Hong Kong and singapore to run the Angkor half marathon and it really is just breath taking, will go again and can't begin to explain how amazing the temple complex is.

Amazing - must be seen and experianced!! Recommend to learn a bit of history before you og there. Cambodia is a lovely country - quite poor but a friendly and smiling People. The Mekong is very exiting to explore - just been there.

We hired the tuk tuk that picked us up from the airport , If you are comfortable walking then he will take you to Angor Wat , Angor Tom ( Bayon Temple ) , Ta Prom and Banteay Srei all in one day , so you can complete them in a day pass ( $20 per day ) and the next day you can do Beng Mealea the next day . The tuk tuk rental for the first day was $39 and I think it is $ 40 to visit Beng Mealea . The price list for tuk tuk will be in the room or the font desk can provide it., if you are solo you have the option to take the mini bus etc .. check with the front desk.
The name if my driver was Toluah and his number is 0886644479.
I stayed close to Pub Street
We had to leave early to see the sunset ( 5 am ) , it will be crowded but I think you can miss this if you don't want a sun rise picture with the temple in backdrop , its mostly a photo event.
However get there early say around 6 am so you still get the sunrise and can complete the temple before the crowd decends

We did Angkor Wat by ourselves. No guide, no tuk tuk. We just hired bikes and cycled up there at 5am for sunrise. The ride itself was atmospheric: like a pilgrimage of bikes and vehicles in the pitch black. Then everyone crowded through the main entrance but we sat on the wall outside, and got some fabulous pics. Yes you are knackered, but it's a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.
