Angkor Wat experience is amazing. I've been to Machu Pichu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Tikal in Guatemala, Copan in Honduras, and I've seen the Egyptian pyramids. This completes the marvel of how ancient civilizations built temples (and tombs) on such a large scale. It will mesmerize you. To make this enjoyable, bring water, a hat, and even an umbrella. It will do wonders to shade you from the sun. Go early in the morning rather then later, the crowds take away from the experience...and there will be crowds. Don't miss the Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm. They say the sunrise is better photo op (cooler too), as you're facing East with a better Angkor Wat profile. Again, expect crowds.

We had hired a private manual along with an airconditioned minivan to bring us available from the city Siem Reap exactly where we stayed at a resort. We'd also hired a tuktuk to have 3 mountainbikes to Angkor. Over there we changed between our way of transportation. At some places you are able to just walk. We biked exclusively at few kilometers as it had been extremely warm. Well then it was nice to enter the cool van. Angkor, Angkot Thom and Ta Phrom quite fascinating and wonderful places. Go there with a guide being the past right. The place is very large you would not know where to start or where to end.

I guess you are not here to decide whether to visit this place but to understand how to make the most of your visit. Angkor Wat is in the bucket list of every traveller- occasional or frequent!

The area covered by the temple complex is the largest in the world, with the main temple standing magnificent despite centuries of its existence. Of course, the temple complex has been undergoing frequent restorations thankfully through Japanese, Indian, French and even German collaborations. The main temple is constructed within a moat and is the entire complex is beautiful confluence of Hindu and Theravada Buddhist architecture that emphasises the successive rules and cultures the country has seen and the skilful and advanced Khmer architecture. It’s undoubtedly the pride of Cambodia.

You can plan a visit from either Phnom Penh or even Bangkok (Siem Reap) is closer to Bangkok and I have heard of people taking a bus to reach Siem Reap from Bangkok though the safety and comfort of this mode of travel is not something experienced by me. We had taken a comfortable same day return flight from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap through Cambodian Airways. This schedule allows a full day in Angkor Way and Bayon temple sites at a convenient pace. One has an option of buying a single day, 2 days or a week long pass for the complex. Once you land in Siem Reap, you can hire one of the ubiquitous Tuk-Tuk for the entire day which costs about USD 30-40. Within a day one can easily cover the Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm. It can be visited by people of all ages. There are several eateries and many shops sell tender coconuts for USD 1 a piece which is a real treat!

I have not explored any stay options nearby so can’t comment on it. However, a great experience of a lifetime awaits you at Angkor!

Visiting Angkor Wat is an extraordinairy experience. These Khmer buildings date from the 12th century and show the essence of Buddhist religion over centuries. Espacially the carved stone stories give A good impression of daily live.

I've nothing negative to say about the location itself. The Angkor Complex is gorgeous and I actually enjoyed the time of mine there. However be careful of the scammers over the ticketing booth. Some arbitrary neighborhood will address you and can provide you an' expedite' service wherein you'll don't need to drop in line. I'm just speaking in behalf of the self of mine and based on the experience of mine. After you gave the money they are going to run and also the very last thing you'll understand is you're on the ticket booth waiting around for nothing. Reporting the event won't additionally do you any good. The security is going to check the cctv footage though they won't offer any refund. In the end you've to fall inline and spend once again.
