“Breath taking”
Review of Angkor Wat

Reviewed 17 May 2014

This has to be the largest of the temples we visited on our one day tour, we didn't approach it from the front, as our guide took us around the lake, as we were also bird watching.
Which ever way you approach, it is an amazing structure which amazed me in terms of scale and detailing of the stone masonry.
It can and does get very very busy though, we went early morning and was quieter, so guess then or later in the day would be best.
There is a lot of walking and climbing steep steps, so need to have sturdy shoes and good mobility. Would also recommend you wear socks, as the ants can really get you as you walk about.

I feel like the smile of Apsara. I can say that it's really amazing building. I like to take a photo there because there are many nice views. I hope to go there again...
