Siem Riep, Angkor Wat: 19 reviews and 14 photos
Favorite thing: Vanakam.
I don't know how long you plan on being in Angkor Wat, but I suggest you get a guide to bring you around for 3 days. At the individual monuments themselves, there are mainly Inspectors (to check your passes) & charlatans trying to pass of as guides.
You need to get a 3-day pass (US $ 40/- per person) so that you have sufficient time to see all the major monuments (& there are plenty, trust me).
Essentially, try to cover:
- Angkor Wat
- Ta Promh (the Tomb Raider one)
- Bantey Srei
- Pnomh Kulen (to see the large carved Sleeping Buddha
& the 1,000 Lingas River)
- Tonle Sap lake
That should give you a generally good exposure to the monuments in Siem Reap.
Let me know if you want a good guide, you can use the one my family & I used. He is very professional, honest & communicates in good English. We paid him US $ 50/- per day & he drove us around in his big air-conditioned car.
Enjoy yourself in Siem Reap, cheers.
Fondest memory: The friendly people & the excellent fusion food.
