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.

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

Finally got to see sunrise after missing it on my last visit 14 years ago due to rain and it was worth the wait. The race to get to the temples before the sun appears is fun - like a scene out of whacky races as tuktuks minivans and motorbikes stream along the long dark, breezy road to Angkor Wat... More

A must see. The visit is included in the ticket to enter the temples. We bought a day pass. We hired a driver with an SUV who took as around to all temples in one day. We had plenty of time to visit, enjoy and take pictures.

This 400 sq. mile park houses some of the best temples ever seen in this world. It can take two days to explore this vast area but well worth it

So we spent 4 days temple climbing in early November with our 3yr old and 21month old children. And it was fantastic! And it was possible. Don't let the naysayers claim it will be too much, go out and do it! It just needs a bit of forward thinking and pragmatism. As an archaeologist I had planned a specific itinerary... More

The park is huge and you could easily take a week to see even a good part of the temples properly. Booking a guide for a few days is definitely the way to go.

What a beautiful piece of ancient history. We saw several temples and all were wonderful but Angkor Watt was the best. Women take something light weight that will cover you shoulders and knees it is required of women entering the temples.

The park is the site of all the ancient temples in the region and is the only reason people visit Siem Reap. There is no doubting the beauty of the temples, but their significance has been lost by the promotion of mass tourism (there are hordes of tourists taking photographs of anything and everything). Also, some of the buildings have... More
