This is a must see. My Guide was incredible. He was patient and kinds and able to explain so much about the history and importance of everything. (unfortunately I have misplaced his name but you can find him thru Green Era travel) People from all over come to see this and it is worth it.

Amazing sunrise with friends. My first experience here but this was amazing ever. If you want to see it, set an alarm at four and do not forget to buy pass

I'm an archeology buff. I've been to archeology sites and ruins in many countries. But I had never come to Cambodia. I had studied about this site. I'm in Cambodia because if it, though I will travel around the country to observe and enjoy other interesting sites. We had a good guide. Very knowledgeable.

The Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses a site of ancient Khmer cities from the 9th to 16th centuries, comprised of more that 100 significant monuments. The crown jewel of this UNESCO World Heritage Site? Angkor Wat! Not only known as the symbol of Cambodia, Angkor Wat holds the honor of being the largest religious monument in the world. With that in mind, give yourself enough time to soak in the beauty, architecture, and history of this Hindu-Buddhist temple. We made visits over two days at different times. Sunrise offers incredible lighting; in the late afternoon, the setting sun illuminates the façade. The weather is going to make or break your visit here.

This of course is on our must see list. I highly recommend it. It is amazing. However there are a series of things you should consider before going that apply to all Angkor sites:

1. Get a tour guide OR do ALOT of pre work. It is a complicated process to get a ticket. You have to go to a separate ticket office in Siem Reap to get a ticket. You have to be there yourself for the ticket since they take your picture and print it on your ticket.

Also if you are going for sunrise, it is completely dark. You need a flash light. I would have been lost navigating the area in the dark without a guide.

2. This is a moderate level hike. You are allowed to wander through the ruins. There is alot of walking, climbing and navigating uneven terrain. I actually rolled my ankle. The site is still being actively restored. We saw in the hotel 2 people with medical boots. Young kids will tire easily and stroller would be carried quite a bit. I would recommend wearing hiking shoes.

3. Not a Functioning Temple Really. We were told you have to wear a dress code because this is a buddhist temple. Buddhists may have authority here but: most temple statues were either looted, destroyed or moved to museums. The daily services are held in a modern temple off to the side of the site. They have erected buddhist shrines from worshipers but there are very very few in the site. This is why I say it is more an active archeological site.

4. Weather. Make sure you go in a season that is not well. Everything is outside and the paths or mostly dirt trails. I can't imagine how miserable it would be in the rain.

Yes there were crowds but it did not spoil our experience! If you can detach yourself from the iconic photo shot from the lake, you will find some other great spots and enjoy the view/experience!
