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.

We have done the small tour before the grand tour. It's probably better to do it the other way around as the small tour is much more impressive - so you keep the best for last. The big tour is about 4h and the small one takes 6h. As there is not that much to do in Siem reap you... More

All I can really say is do not miss it. The grand circuit is a bit over run with people so definitely pay for a real tour guide who can help you plan and maneuver for the best times. I recommend 2-3 days to your this park - one day on the grand circuit and 1-2 da m days for... More

We did a lot of walking. Best to wear good walking shoes. We enjoyed visiting the park early in the morning when it was not so hot. It is an amazing and educational place to visi. Well worth visiting.

This is a must visit, while in Cambodia. The entire compound includes dozens of temples (which I've reviewed separately), and could easily take a couple of days to explore, but if you are short on time, make sure to have at least a full day at the park, as it is so much worth it.

We traveled to Siem Reap with main purpose of going through the Angkor site as so many others. No disappointment, Angkor is indeed worth a visit. We added a trip to the National Museum later on, which may be better to do in opposite order to increase awareness of what to look for in Angkor. I would also highly recommend... More

This place is huge, impressive, and requires a lot of walking. Wear appropriate temple dress and good shoes and bring lots of water. Pay extra for the guides to maximize your time and enjoyment!

Not sure if one should consider it an archaeological park, (some small temples in the areas prior to Angkor Wat’s entrance), instead consider it as part of Angkor Wat. This area is more of small souvenir shops with some food places that in my opinion distort the temple atmosphere. However, one does have to account for that it is a... More
