4.8/5 based on 26,000+ reviews on the web
A World Heritage Site and the largest religious monument in the world, Angkor Wat contains some of the greatest masterpieces of Khmer art and architecture in existence. Khmer emperor Suryavarman II had the temple built in the early 12th century, originally dedicating it to the Hindu god Vishnu. By the end of the century, the temple transformed into a Buddhist religious site, which it remains today. Tour the 162.6 hectare (402 acre) complex to see its fantastically detailed and well preserved stone temples. Wear clothes that cover your upper arms and legs down to the knees to adhere to the temple's visitor dress code.

  • It's one of the many Cambodia's World Heritage sites. It's the masterpiece with a whole lots of temples. It's undoubtedly an amazing, breathtaking and wonderful place you should never miss when you are touring Southeast Asia! If you want to see the stunning view of the Angkor Wat, come as early as 4AM. Of course the sun doesn't rise at this hour but if you are late you won't get any spot to sit. I can assure you that you will never forget this experience.
  • Beautiful temple, but super busy in the morning for sunrise. If you go for the sunrise viewing, wait a little after the sun comes up. Most people head off as soon as the sky gets light but there is often some good photos still to be had. Grab drink from one of the nearby stands and wait until the sun is in the sky above the temple.
  • Incredible place. Get there way before 5 am if you want the best seats in the house to watch sunrise. Get a guide to get the most out of your trip. Make sure you are prepared and carry long trousers, and something to cover your shoulders or you might miss out on a few temples!
  • One of the Wonders of the world! UNESCO world heritage and the iconic place to represent Cambodia. A must visit place if you are visiting Southeast Asian countries!
