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.

A must see but Disgusted that the current government has leased it to a private company so all the money spent goes straight into private pockets and money to fix the park is raised through other means. So beyond beautiful. The more remote temples give you are authentic jungle, exploring ruins feel. the main ones can be a bit clinical.

It's easy to spend a day or two here. There are many famous buildings and places, and don't expect to be alone. I recommend you try some om the less crowded places as well. You get a different feeling there.

One day is not enough to see this fascinating site. Highly recommended and the small temples just as interesting as the big names.

I could write a book on just how beautiful Angkor is....and it still wouldn't explain because words do not do it justice. Go experience and explore for yourself.

I opted to go during sunrise and I'm glad I did! Best to book with a local travel agent and tour guide that speaks fluent English otherwise it's not really educational going there without learning the whole history behind it.

It encompasses all the temples and is accessible via 20$ day ticket, 40$ for 3 days. There are wild monkeys here and there, there are people living their normal lives in the area. You can go to the hill next to Angkor Wat to have a sunset view.

After viewing all the essential temples, etc angkor wat, angkor thom(bayon), ta prohm, preah khan, bantaey srei, bakheng,..my opinion is one has to either hire a tour guide during tour or spend the first day at the museum and start a 3 days trip covering temples in small circle, big circle and the outskirt circle. Then a day capturing a... More

US$40 buys you access to the complex for three days during opening hours. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia,.covering over some 400 km2, and consists of scores of temples, hydraulic structures (basins, dykes, reservoirs, canals) as well as communication routes. After my previous visit in 2014, I decided to source information from libraries and... More

What was nice once up on a time, isn't so anymore. By the grace of the old gods and the new, the structures have stood up for themselves. Thats the only marvel. It was disheartening to see that the local people (including the govt) who have so much dependency on these temples / tourism and is the only source of... More
