The temple grounds are beautiful and angkor wat is the national symbol for Cambodia. Cambodians take great pride in this place, as this is a part of culture. Their culture and history had almost been wiped out by the Khmer rouge, so please be respectful. The grounds are huge! It's worth hiring a tour guide if you don't know anything... More

The architecture is majestic and grand. Formal in arrangement and 85% restored. Would be great to come during off peak season if you would like to absorb the features of the temple and to get lost in your thoughts. During high peak season...the queue to the peak takes about 1hour. High tourist traffic unfortunately interrupting the overall experience. Best to... More

For sure the buildings are impressive but it's also a big money making way for the locals. The tickets are unbelievable expensive. And then there are millions of people, most of them Chinese making picture with there selfiestick. You are not allowed to drive from one temple to another by your own so you have to pay for a driver...... More

Do not get me wrong, Angkor Wat is nice and huge. It's the largest Hindu temple. It's great from the air but on the ground you can't take it in. Its architecture limits how much you can observe It is an absolute must see if you have time. But if you are time constraint there are more unique (unique to... More

Our tour (with a private guide-Leath Lin) of Angkor Wat was the highlight of our Cambodia visit. So much history and well preserved. Beautiful, grand temple. We spent around 3 hours here in awe. It's really amazing. Our guide was a little hard to understand (semi english speaking) but we got the gist of it. I had read up on... More

Iconic amazing place. However familiar the pictures you really have to see the beautiful carving in exquisite detail. The simply stunning towers and the fascinating parts that have been renovated. If you want the view from the top tower go very early as queues can be very long. 34deg when we went.

The downside was all the tourists! however, if you get a good guide/ tuk tuk driver, he will take you to the best sites to avoid the crowds. If you go there for sunrise (5.30 am), expect to have had enough by 1.00-2.00pm. The heat is draining, but it is soooo worthwhile. We had 2 days, I think having 3... More

Need at least 2 days to do justice to the place. Dress light as it gets warm. Do read up a little on the history of the area and about the Ramayana and Mahabharat (Hindu mythology) to make sense of the Bas relief on the walls. Having a guide helps as they know what all is there without you having... More

We particularly enjoyed Tah Prohm for its integration with the nature. The locals are very nice, and there are plenty of ways to get around all of the temples. Be prepared to be patient with the other tourists though.
