Angkor Wat Things to Do: 834 reviews and 1,837 photos

This is the great city that once flourished in the 12th century when Khmer culture reaches its peak of glory. Today, much of the original city had been lost...but the gates, with its tower of enigmatic faces (said to be that of one Angkor's ruler) still grace the land, gazing upon all.

Best time to visit would be in the morning for best lighting for photography and visit it in the afternoon if you wish to avoid bumping into folks (ie crowds)!
