Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 sq. km, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. These include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging programme to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.
your photo of angkor with a tree growing on it is in fact Ta Prohm temple and not angkor wat! Ta Prohm temple is situated in the angkor thom complex and not located inside Angkor wat which is a completely different temple complex
Angkor Wat was amazing... Siem remp was amazing the people, the food, the views, everything. We were on a 3 week vacation first to Vietnam, Cambodia and then Thailand. In the end Cambodia was our favorite!
I fell in love with the temples the more I spend time around them. The more I look, the more there are! It's really like a time capsule, going back to the ancient days where
was a bustling place. Just a super place!
We took a family vacation to Cambodia in the summer of 2006. It was our first visit to Angkor Wat of Cambodia. Upon our arrival to the site, I was treated by a spectacular view and artworks. It is almost unbelievable that such monument, considering its magnitude and detail devoted to the artworks, was built in 12 century. It is an incredible achievement of architecture and engineering. One has to appreciate such achievement considering the complexity of planning of such project. In short, I love the visit and plan to go back in the future.
My husband and I visited Angkor Wat, Siem Riep last May 2006. We thought it was absolutely surreal. If you haven't been there you should make it one of your place to visit before you pass this earth. It is absolutely beautiful. Angkor Wat is full of rich history. Siem Riep is a tourist attraction, you would enjoy it more if you have a local tourist guide. Remember, do not eat from vendors the street. Enjoy and have fun if you decide to visit.
Hire a guide who can explain the temples in detail, otherwise you may be "templed out" when they all start to look the same but have very different significance. Three days should be good but the highlights can be done in two.
As crowds grow, they are raising prices (was $40 USD for three day pass but I read that was going up). Also, they are realizing that tourists were getting to cozy in the ancient temples like touching old relics. To preserve these, I heard the government was talking about measures to protect the temples...don't be surprised if things you could today touch tomorrow have barriers.
It really is a magnificent place. You must go!
