    Magnificent temple complex
    The temple is renowned for its grand galleries, magnificent bas reliefs, and ancient ruins. The temple is also known for its glorious sunrises, which can be seen from the top of the temple. Visitors can explore the ancient ruins, climb the steep stairs, and admire the intricate bas reliefs. There is also a museum that houses artifacts from the temple's history. Angkor Wat is an incredible experience and a must-see for anyone visiting the region. Whether you're looking for a spiritual experience or just want to explore an ancient ruin, Angkor Wat is a must-see.

    So lucky to have seen the sights!
    I feel very privileged to see Angkor Watt and the surrounding temples. The views are breathtaking. It is worth planning to visit different temples. Take a good pair of shoes - we walked 20,000 steps in one day around the temples.

    A few helpful tips
    We started at the back entrance and worked our way forward. That way the sun was mostly behind us. We went early in the morning. Great decision on both fronts. The crowds were smaller and lighting better. There are really good documentaries on You Tube that set out the history of the complex, kings, kingdoms etc. I advise watching them as they make it so much more real. A must do in Cambodia. To combine this with Ta Prohm, Bayon and the Lady Temple (a lot further out) will give you different temple experiences.

    Beyond Belief
    The extent and magnitude of the temple area is astounding. Add to that is the intricate carvings covering the stones, particularly the carvings inside the carvings, is something to behold. If you've been to Alhambra, you have some idea of the carvings.

    Awestruck totally
    The magnitude of the structure is breathtaking. The carvings and fine details of carving is really impressive. Must have a guide to explain these details. It gets very hot and sunny all through the day so it’s advisable to start early in the day or else start from the back and move ahead . Carry loads to water and wear comfortable walking shoes as there lots to explore and there a quiet a few steep steps to climb up and down . It’s definitely worth the visit .

    Angkor Wat private sunrise tour
    Excellent sunrise tour of Angkor Wat, Ta Phrohm, Angkor Thom and Bayon temples. Our guide Sopheap (So) was excellent. V knowledgeable with great English and considerate of our heat intolerance and ensuring our safety. So had lots of interesting and entertaining stories and was happy to share wider stories about the war with us as we had limited time in Cambodia. He was also a great photographer and took lots of great photos of us. Our driver Kosal was equally excellent always ensuring we had plenty of chillled water and wipes and a step to get in and out the van. Overall an unforgettable experience and I would highly recommend Sopheap, Kosal and Journey Cambodia.

    A must do experience
    An outstanding tour. We were fortunate to be visiting on one of two days each year when the sun rises directly above the centre temple. We were there for six am, but it was worth the early start. We saw the sunrise, went back to our hotel for breakfast and returned to visit the other temple buildings.

    More advice than review
    It is massive and the seeing it, it’s hundred times different than watching or reading about it. It is normally hot, get a lot of water as at the place is overpriced. Dress code covering arms and knees when you would like to enter part of temples. You can buy ticket online via government page and save time. If you do small or long tour temples circuit, it is practical to have take away lunch from hotels or hostel than searching on the way. Good shoes, preferably sport shoes, especially you climb up to temple towers, you walk 4-5 kilometres only for this temple and area around in direct sun. Ticket price is for many temples around Angkor, tuk tuk for whole day is great advice, if you like intensive day to see a lot of things around from early morning till sunset. When you are four people , the price is really good. Total time for quick visit is two hours

    An incredible feat of engineering and artistry
    It is the largest religious monument in the world and a renowned symbol of the Khmer Empire. The intricate design of the temple, with its ancient sculptures, magnificent spires, and vast complex, is a sight to behold. The temple has been preserved for centuries and is a testament to the incredible craftsmanship and skill of the Khmer people. The temple is an architectural marvel, with its intricate carvings, ornate decorations, and detailed sculptures. The temple is a popular tourist destination and a must-see for anyone who visits Cambodia.

This was the reason we went to Cambodia. This site is massive. Not just the main Ankor Wat site, but all of the other sites around it. Easily 2 days, but if you only have one, then the main site is the one you need to see since it has had the most repairs.

It was very crowded in the morning when all the busses got there, however our driver took us back around there at 2:30pm and it was nearly empty and we got tons of pictures with almost no one else ruining it. Instead of the tourist bus, rent a private driver (very cheap in this area) and go when you want. Our driver also took us to all of the other areas/temples around Ankor Wat. Don't miss everything else. We had an english speaking driver for 2 days ($35 per day) and we had total control of our days.

Amazing architect! I felt I myself very small in front of Angkor complex. All patterns on the walls are intricately carved. I highly recommend to visit Angkor Wat in the afternoon to avoid crowds. Do not forget to to to the back of the temples to meet many monkeys. But do not feed them, pls!!!

A huge Hindu temple of the world, and rich of Mahabharata and Ramayana stories carved around the wall. Best visiting with excellent tour guide Thearith John, he showed us all the carving with history behind, that was useful. We started early morning 4:30 am for seeing sunrise is the best view point reflecting in the pool. Our know all best spots for photos. This temple is a must see.

As the other thousands of reviews suggest this site is a must see. We had a one day pass which allowed us enough time to see around 5 temples, 3 being the most popular ones. We arrived before sunrise and it took us around 7/8 hours to get around with out tuktuk driver. It was a truly amazing visit. Comfortable, flat shoes are a must!

Totally amazing and well worth the visit. Well maintained and organised. Enjoyed these areas extensively. Only suggestion would be install lights around stairs as it’s fairly dark inside and this would likely avoid an accident or use your mobile phone light. Permanent staff onsite very helpful.

The intricate design work and majestic sandstone structures create a sense of awe. Its serene setting within the larger Angkor complex adds to the overall experience. Any visitor to Siem Reap should prioritize exploring this architectural and historical marvel.

Angkor Wat needs to be explored at slow pace with lots of time in hand. It is as beautiful as it is magnificent. And in equal part mysterious. One can understand the structure better with the help of a local guide. They are licensed and can be booked through various travel websites or even through local hotels.

Absolutely awesome place. We have been to other large temples on the world but this is something else. The heat and humidity did make it hard work however, we went in the afternoon when both were at a peak. Do your best to go when not so hot if you can as I thought I was going to explode.
Excellent history and our private guide was good.
Be warned the toilets are located at the start but are still about 1km walk away, was a long walk when I was in a rush!!
