Despite being hugely popular for its massive land area the site does not offer much apart from the few structures that are still standing. Could do better with more information displayed in various locations of the site. Overall a good experience thou.

Angkor Archaeological Park is incredible and one of the neatest places I have ever been in the world. From Being Melea, which has been completely taken over by nature, to the massive size of Angkor Wat, the diversity in the structures in this region is truly astonishing. Bayon is also amazing and Preah Khan as well as Ta Prohm are other highlights to hit when you visit the Angkor Archaeological Park.

Siem Reap would be a little bit different without this magnificent complex. Whatever route you take or how many days you visit the Angkor Archeological Park, I think it would always give different taste. Since the complex is really huge, better visit it by tuk-tuk for one day visit or paddle your bicycle slowly for more than one day visit.

When you visit here, really amazing to see the Angkor Wat which is a symbol of Cambodia. Every tourists really should not missed to visit here and really wonderful. The ticket is very special, must took photograph at the ticket counter to avoid somebody stolen your ticket.

The most spectacular single set of temples in Asia, and possibly the world, the monuments of Angkor -- a medieval civilization that reached its peak in the 11th century -- must be seen to be believed. While guidebooks often spuriously claim that a particular site requires "two full days" to appreciate, Angkor fully lives up to that assertion: one day is simply not enough. Everyone will have their own personal favorites, but even an hour lost in a masterpiece like Preah Khan or Banteay Srey will make you abundantly grateful to have been born with functioning eyeballs. One of the absolute highlights of travel anywhere, and not to be missed.

This ancient city is vast, impressive, and a highlight of planet Earth. A must-visit for any serious traveler or history buff. The support infrastructure around the complex is growing making it infinitely more accessible than it was even 10 years ago. Unfortunately, with access comes expanded tourism and you will likely need to fight for your spot amidst the magic. Learn the tourist rhythm and follow a different path. If the mega buses are parked outside a small temple, skip it and come back. Venture out and don't be afraid to spend 3 or 4 days here soaking it all up.

Large complex of temple ruins, with many still being 'discovered' (or perhaps, demined and cleared out is a better way to put it).

All in all, a very cool sight, somewhere between Versailles and the Taj Mahal on the 'what a cool place' scale.

Angkor - the ancient capital of Cambodia. Within several centuries the khmer kings considering equal gods, built here majestic palaces and temples. In the X-XII centuries Angkor, probably, was one of the largest cities of the world. However after in 1431 of army of the next Siam took and destroyed the city, inhabitants left it, and it got to the power of the jungle which for many years hid it from people. Time and the jungle didn't spare wooden structures, however palaces and temples, despite destructions, managed to resist to the jungle and simply shook the European researchers who for the first time have seen them in the middle of the XIX century. In 1907 the area Angkora who was before under control of Siam (present Thailand), under pressure of France was returned to Cambodia. In 1992 Angkor was taken under UNESCO protection. Angkor's remains occupy the space about 200 sq.km. In total here about 100 palaces and temples remained.

Angkor – not one monument. It is the whole system of temples. The closest temples are in 6 km from Seam Reap.
