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.

It's nice and very very educational. What we did was we went tot he museum first in town then went here the following day. That's so as we get to know what the history is. That's why we understand why the temples were built for.

Its nothing like the pictures! Its truly amazing. We did the archaeological park on vespas and can only recommend doing it this way. The instant coldness you get between temples is absolutely refreshing and the relief you desperately need!! You will never believe how close each temple is. Make sure your camera is fully charged! You feel like you have... More

This is a must when visiting Siem Reap, Most of the main temples are located fairly close together. I hired a car and driver for the day at a cost of $35US which i thought was a reasonable price, the driver dropped me to the entrance to each temple and waited at the exit. If you go by bus this...

There's a whole complex of many different temples at Angkor Wat, Angkor Wat itself is the largest and best known, and is clearly a 'must see' if you visit the archeological park, but I find many of the others more exciting. One of the best things is that the temples are not over-renovated, some are covered in growing vegetations, others... More

instead of reviewing the whole park i have reviewed the temples individually as i think the hardest thing to do is work out which temples you want to visit, and then where they are located. However on the small tour and the big one, i saw no reason or need to have a car, the tuk tuk was just perfect,... More

Encompassing 400 square kilometers the 9th to 15th centuries Khmer architecture including the Temple of Angkor Wat and at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple. Don't travel here from March to May because it can reach 40C. We travelled in May 2017 and it was 34C with high humidity. Everything is in USD$ and there is a $37 entrance fee. You... More

Many people generically talk about 'Ankor Wat' when referring to the park, however it is just the largest of the many temples (40+) in the area. Spanning an almost continuous building from the early 9th to the 14th centuries, it's temples/cities cover many years of Khmer rulers and corresponding architectural styles. The history is very complex and I recommend at... More

First off: YOU MUST GO HERE. This is one of the most amazing places on earth, period. Second: You cannot see everything in two days, you cannot even see everything in a week but you should at least try to visit the small and big circuits, save a day for each of those, and then try to see some of...
