We had a three day pass, and I really believe that is the one to go for. I think you should do a sunrise, but get your hotel to pack you a breakfast bag and stay there at the main complex for at least 3 hours. After sunrise most people leave to go back to their hotels, and that is the golden hour then, so you get lovely light and very few visitors to clutter your photo's. Mid-day is very hot, so I went back to the hotel then and went out again after 3pm to visit the numerous other temples in the area.. Hope that helps

It really depends on what you mean by “see” and whether you mean Angkor Wat Temple or the entire complex. Plan on a full day to explore the main temple and the next morning to see sunrise, but prepared to get there early as it’s very crowded. Also, be sure to bring sunscreen as the sun is intense and very hot.

I would allow 3 days. It is vast and the hot humid conditions will also significantly limit how fast you get about,

We had a tuk tuk driver and did a full day tour, if the weather is really hot you could do two half days instead, a full day is needed to get to see all the main sites

The area is huge so you cannot realistically see every building and wander through all the spaces. I would give yourself at least 3-4 hours and I think you will feel like you’ve covered much of it.

We were there for about 3 hours.

We arrived at 4:30 for the sunrise and once we’d seen as much as we could of that we headed inside for an hour and came out at 7.

Took some more photos of the sun finally peeking over the top of the towers and headed back after that around 7:30.

There is more to see but we had to check out back at the hotel.

Do the sunrise if you can.

If you don’t want to rush I recommend a 3 days visit. It also depends if you explore this on your own or with a guide. With local guide you spend full three days since the licensed guides know a lot about the area and history. It also depends if you are interested in the old carvings, history and religion. We met people that were just up for the nice picture. For nice pictures you just need a day.
