You hear so much about a place beforehand that when you get there it can be a let down NOT SO with Ankor Wat. The sheer size of the place is mind blowing and to think a civilisation built this years ago without all the so called modern technology we have today is incredible.
Yes the area gets very crowded and you will need some stamina to walk and scale the place and the heat can be intense so bring water and a good hat.
Our 3 day pass cost 62USD and is extremely quick to organise and if you can hire a local guide as they can give you lots of information about the temple.
They do limit the number of people (100 at a time)who can access the inner temple but it was quick and well organised.
One huge disappointment was when we reached the top some people had graffitied one of the stone pillars (imbeciles)
So glad that we went and enjoyed the day.More
