    Buy tickets a day before especially if you plan to catch the sunrise. Get the 3-day pass so you have enough time to check every nook and cranny. Crowds usually gather at the left side area so be wiser

    The entrance ticket to Angkor Wat for one day is $20. There are lots of temples that you can visit and one day is actually not enough. Tuk tuk per day is around $15.

    Take a tour guide wearing a uniform, not the ones without it. Enjoy, admire and remind yourself that once greet nation is on its knees now. Human success is temporary.

    Адски много туристов! Флешмоб "встреть рассвет в 5:30"дурацкий абсолютно. Рассвет не так уж и крут, а народу тьма. Лучше в это время ехать в ТаПром-там тишина и загадочные леса только для вас.

  • Ирина Ж.

    Если хотите посмотреть творения кхмеров без толп туристов: 1.Идите в другие храмы, не в АнкгорВат(там туристы всегда) 2.В 5:30 рассвет и открытие храмов, до 7-8 людей нет 3. С 8-10 сносно, после толпа

    Incredible monument. Try to avoid the crowd

    Wow. Sehr beeindruckend. Sollte man im Leben mal besucht haben.

    Уникальный природно-архитектурный комплекс, огромный по площади, красивый. Если хотите попасть на самый верх, нужно подобрать одежду, чтобы колени и плечи были закрыты,и повязанная косынка не прокатит

  • Juan D.

    Impresionante! Ir a ver el amanecer esta sobrevalorado. Pero sin duda vale la pena visitarlo, leyendo la historia antes de la visita y, si se puede, yendo con un guía

    После 17 бесплатный вьезд

  • Mehter

    Half day tour is enough. You see 3 temples. So a temple is a temple is a temple, right?

    Mehter · February 20
  • Никола К.

    Too many tourists, ruining the magic of this place...

  • Parag - F.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Go right instead of left for a less crowded sunset spot, although the view is slightly less spectacular.

    Eli Horne · February 10
  • Charles G.

    Arriver par l'entrée est afin d'éviter le flux massif de touristes

    Charles Greindl · February 1
  • Karissa G.

    Get to the sunrise even earlier than they recommend - it gets crazy crowded and people get pushy. Be sure to cover your knees and shoulders if you want to go to the high/top temple.

    Karissa G C · January 21
  • Georg K.

    Arrive early for sunrise. Gets crowded around 5:30 already. If you arrive early grab a seat on the stones right by the water for best view of the sunrise.

  • Craig A.

    Sunrise was worth waiting for- but don't expect to be able to do a full day after getting up at 5am.

  • Victoria

    Обязательно к посещению. Закат, правда, того не стоит, чтобы ехать специально.

    Victoria · January 13
  • Alexandra C.

    Don't eat in the rstaurants. Food is really bad and expensive.

    Alexandra Cvetkova · January 2
  • Anand

    The best time to visit the temple is during the sunrise (05:55 local time). Get a guide for $10-15 an hour to get the history of the temple.

  • HaeAn S.

    It is great temple but so crowded with many big group tourists and loud tour guides' voice.

    HaeAn Sung · December 30, 2014
  • Maxim

    Если хотите встретить рассвет в Ангкоре, приезжайте занимать лучшие места минут за 45-60 до восхода солнца. Зимой в 5:30 у левого бассейна уже не пртолкнуться, все хотят сделать фото с отражением храо

    Maxim · December 23, 2014
  • Victoria W.

    Don't leave without climbing to the top! You already made it here

    Angkor Wat inanılmaz güzel bir yer, müthiş harikulade be anlatmakla bitmez. Gelip görmek lazım!

    Sunrise to see bright lit sky against shadow of angkor wat , sunset to see golden glow of angkor wat

    Must visit before you die! pre study about ancient cambodian history is recommended

    Cover up on the top section (wear appropriate clothing). The female guardians are like extremely unreasonable in not allowing westerners up vs others. Very racist

    Рассвет не вдохновил. А так впечатление храм производит

    Sofia Shemiakina · September 21, 2014
  • Phat B.

    Iconic views. Make sure you wear appropriate clothing - shoulders and knees covered otherwise you won't get onto the top layer

    Адекватная цена за гида - 6-7$.

  • Jung Hoon K.

    U need to be here by 5 am to see the sunrise at a good photo spot! Be careful, floods of peeps will be pushing which can be quite irritating.

    Jung Hoon Kim · September 8, 2014
  • Josh P.

    Take the temple route backwards and see the first few temples in absolute solitude. Amazing!

    Josh Partijo · September 6, 2014
  • Ekaterina M.

    Under 13 p.m. sun is straight to your eyes but after there are many tourists! So, go to sunrise. Photos are just pictures, but it is a sense of Angkor's spirit that will depends on your future life!

    Stunning place but during rainy season sunrise is not always present

    The best way to visit the temples is to rent Tuk Tuk for one day. Do not attempt to visit the area cycling because it is huge and the temperatures around 32 C.

    Gaddo · August 12, 2014

    One of the amazing temples of Angkor. Don't miss to take postcards pictures from the left side (facing the temple). A must see in Cambodia !
