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.

There's a whole complex of many different temples at Angkor Wat, Angkor Wat itself is the largest and best known, and is clearly a 'must see' if you visit the archeological park, but I find many of the others more exciting. One of the best things is that the temples are not over-renovated, some are covered in growing vegetations, others... More

instead of reviewing the whole park i have reviewed the temples individually as i think the hardest thing to do is work out which temples you want to visit, and then where they are located. However on the small tour and the big one, i saw no reason or need to have a car, the tuk tuk was just perfect,... More

Encompassing 400 square kilometers the 9th to 15th centuries Khmer architecture including the Temple of Angkor Wat and at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple. Don't travel here from March to May because it can reach 40C. We travelled in May 2017 and it was 34C with high humidity. Everything is in USD$ and there is a $37 entrance fee. You... More

Many people generically talk about 'Ankor Wat' when referring to the park, however it is just the largest of the many temples (40+) in the area. Spanning an almost continuous building from the early 9th to the 14th centuries, it's temples/cities cover many years of Khmer rulers and corresponding architectural styles. The history is very complex and I recommend at... More

First off: YOU MUST GO HERE. This is one of the most amazing places on earth, period. Second: You cannot see everything in two days, you cannot even see everything in a week but you should at least try to visit the small and big circuits, save a day for each of those, and then try to see some of...

Siem Reap is not just about Angkor Wat. There are so many other temples; Angkor Thom, The Bayon Temple, Ta Prohm etc. We did it with a private guide starting with the mandatory sunrise at Angkor Wat but many do it through group tours or independently with Tuk Tuk drivers. You will need a pass to enter the temple sites... More

The park encompasses all the main temple sites near Siem Reap. You can buy a three day pass for the park and you need at least three full days to do the main sites. There is a lot to be said for avoiding the group tours and hiring a Tuk Tuk for the three days.

Let me start by saying that I absolutely loved Angkor archeological park! Not just Angkor Wat but the whole site which is made up of hundreds of temples! I loved ... * exploring each of the temples which seemed so different from one another * finding out so much history from a costly but well informed guide - thank goodness... More

When is Siem Reap this is the place you must visit. The majority of sites are in great condition and you really get to see into the past. The price of admission is expensive so I suggest just getting the 1 day pass and seeing the sunrise before seeing as many temples are you can. I spent 2 days here... More

Angkor Archaeological Park is similar to the Mayan ruins at Tikal Archaeological Park in Guatemala or Thailand’s Ayutthaya Historical Park, north of Bangkok. Although Angkor Wat is the most famous, I found Angkor Thom (which means, literally, “Great City”) the most astounding. And great it is, covering more than 9-square-kilometers (3½ square miles). The main sites are Baphuon, Phimeanakas, Prasat... More
