Such an amazing, wonderful and historic place. This temple complex takes your breath away. It is massive. There are so many little things to discover. The architecture is so lovely. The garden is amazing. Really it is very difficult to describe this unique place. Definitely a must visit on your Cambodia visit!
Such a magnificent piece of history. I'm really glad we had a guide who was able to explain its history. It's the most famous temple, so if you go during high season, it'll be littered with tourists. Luckily I went during low season (June) and was able to enjoy it with much less people. It was also nice to have the overcast to block the harsh sunlight and see the temple in a dark setting that was so magical.
One of the most excellent and amazing place on earth. Should be classified as one of the wonders on earth. Biggest and largest place of worship in earth. Very very ancient and excellent architecture. Very very huge temple when it was created, then later converted to Buddhist monastery . Government should take more effort to maintain this wonderful monument.
I still cannot get my head around how they built all of the exquisite temples all those years ago! It's never ending carvings of pictures from the past and huge pieces of rock! It's a shame that Vietnam own it as I would have hoped my $37 dollar ticket would have gone to helping Cambodia. There is also a lot of sellers everywhere. As soon as the minibus door opens you get swamped which can be a bit intimidating.
Come here early to get a nice spot for that signature sunrise view. Bring your own breakfast while enjoying the sunrise. Bring mosquito repellent as well. Avoid the food stalls on the left side of the lake, the price isn't worth it. Angkor Wat is beautiful with all the carvings, etc. If you want to know more about the history of this place, there's always guided tour available for hire on the spot form roughly $10. You can also climb up to the Bakan which is limited to 100 people at any one time, so come back here in the late afternoon or evening if you want to go up because it'll be empty in the evening and you can enjoy the sunset as well.
