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 Angkor Thom was a bustling place. Just a super place!
Beautiful Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

I took an exact photograph of the very picture accompanying this article – along with about 200 others on my second visit to this fabulous site. The architecture is impressive in spite of having alternatively been vandalized by the Hindus and the Buddhists.I have been all over Asia including three trips to Cambodia, lugging my Nikon D700 [expensive] and have never had a problem. I’ve taken it into town in the evening when I went to dinner and my walk home in the dark. I’ve found the Khmer people unfailingly kind and generous – with a few exceptions – and have had only minor problems. I would strongly recommend visiting both Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. I would not again visit Sihanoukville – it’s overrun by Russians [gangsters!?] and IF you do visit do NOT eat the very tasty salads at the dozens of mini-restaurants on the beach. I got one heck of a case of gastroenteritis and it’s no fun.If you go and want excellent accommodations for a small price there is no better than Mother Home Guest House. It’s a four star accommodation [including breakfast] for a one star price.

Incredible,,, Gave me real insight to the fact that the ancient population developed world wide. Romans, South Americans, Asians developed water ways and waste water ways all in their own different ways…All ingenius in their own ways…Angkor Wat is as impressive as the Pyramids considering work involved and thought processes. I loved imagining the area in its prime with a mass population living amongst where the forest now is and was. UNFORGETTABLE…
Still Amazingly Beautiful

Angkor is an ancient city name for the Khmer Empire that ruled much of Southeast Asia for almost 500 years (between 9-14th cent). Ancient Cambodians (called Khmer back then) were exceptionally skillful with craftsmanship and highly innovative. They were able to take Indian’s Hindu architecture and transformed it into unique Khmer styles. Angkor Wat and many hundreds other temples stood or still standing in Siem Reap today are evidences that cannot be disputed. I have been to Angkor, Siem Reap, six times, and each time it’s almost like an entirely brand new trip. There are just so much to see and learn. Just Angkor Wat alone is 1.8 sq km. Even though the five main towers is the main focus point for most tourists, the area surrounding them is no less important and providing adventurous feeling if one has time to visit (I once walked the entire perimeter of the temple). The people are amazingly nice. Even though many kids will try to sell you things (most of the time at a very good price), they are also very helpful at providing information even if you didn’t buy their goods. Compared to neighboring Vietnam or Thailand, Cambodian people are most selfless. Given its large area, ranging between 400-700 sq km, Angkor can give visitors a real sense of satisfaction, a sense of adventure where jungle is just a few steps from the temple ruins. If you are a first time visitor, the inner Angkor complex is recommended for visiting, but if you have been there before, I recommend that you take a little adventure to sites such as Banteay Srei, Phnom Kulen, Rolous temple complex. These sites were created from different period of the empire, which will give you a better understanding of how vast and diversify the Khmers were. If you are looking for an adventurous, memorable trip, Angkor will guarantee just that. By Khmer Pride.
