Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Mao Samnang. Best guide ever! Spent 2 days together. Knowledgeable, engaging, and filled with unforgettable experiences. Mao Samnang was not in a hurry and provided a wealth of cultural and local knowledge and experiences. She had answers for all of our questions and accommodated different energies and age levels. Thank you for sharing your love for your country. We highly recommend this amazing female guide.

    We spent the afternoon here after doing Angkor Wat at sunrise in the morning. It was not nearly as crowded and was nice to have less people milling about. Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommend doing this as well.

    In the Angkor Wat area, this is often included in the tour packages. It isn't as impressive as the Angkor Wat main site, but the strangler figs growing up among the ruins with their creeping roots gives it a jungle temple feel. Also, we saw a troupe of spider monkeys on the way. Definitely worth the visit.

    This area comprises several temples. The South Gate is very imposing. Apparently there were four main gates into the city. The South Gate was for everyone.

    A bucket list must! You have made it to Cambodia, surely this is why you came? Note: the ticket office is separate to the park, consider buying your ticket the evening before if you want to see the sun rise at Angkor Wat. Be sure to get there as early as you can, its worth it. You will need transportation around the park as it is VAST. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and be sure to have sunscreen and plenty of water. Do a little research beforehand to get the most of the trip.
    Yes the place gets busy and the locals want to sell you their wares but for most people this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself into something totally unique.

    Exploring Prasat Preah Khan: A Majestic Temple in Cambodia is a captivating journey into the heart of Cambodia's rich cultural heritage. This remarkable temple, built during the Khmer Empire's golden age, showcases a fusion of Hindu and Buddhist architectural styles. The temple complex, adorned with intricate carvings and surrounded by lush greenery, exudes a sense of spirituality and tranquility. Thanks to extensive restoration efforts, visitors can now experience the grandeur of Prasat Preah Khan and appreciate its historical and cultural significance. A visit to this awe-inspiring temple is a must for anyone exploring Cambodia's ancient wonders.

    This is a magnificent temple. If you have mobility issues, you can probably still walk around the perimeter and appreciate it!

    This was our last temple in Cambodia, and it was great! The temple isn't big, it doesn't take a lot of time. It's 3 levels, so you have two sets of stairs to climb. They're not bad at all. It's a beautiful temple, and the five sanctuary towers on the top have gorgeous carved detail. And lions. Big lion statues. The view from the top was great. This is another one that is pretty quiet, not many people. It was great having the place mostly to ourselves.

    This terrace was used by the king and important people to watch elephant fights in the field below. The interesting part is when you walk down the steps and see the carvings along the base.

    This is a Buddhist temple so it is on one level. You walk through lots of small chambers and passages. It is interesting but not as interesting as Angor Wat

    This is the largest and most interesting of the 'Roluos' group of temples (which isn' saying too much since the other temples are tiny). I would only venture here is you are staying in Angkor for 3 days or more. This temple is interesting as it is multi tiered and you can explore all tiers well, with good views from the top tier and interesting areas to explore at the bottom. Can do it in about 30-45 mins.

    We found this temple much quieter than most of the other temples. It has a lovely walk up to the temple. The carvings are in better shape here than many of the other temples we visited.

    This was fun to walk across the boardwalk on a lake to get to the trail that leads you to this temple. The temple is an artificial island with a small Hindu temple on it. At the base of the island are two snakes that surround the island. We liked that the scenery was unique from the other temples

    This terrace which our guide told us represented hell had intricately carved figures around its base. We could not go up but I think the interesting part was the base.

    This is a pretty quiet temple, with giant elephant statues on the corners. It's an easy walk from the parking area, and it doesn't involve as much climbing as some of the other temples (a very nice thing on a hot, humid day). This one wasn't originally on our list of things to do, but we were passing and it looked fun. (It's included with the Angkor ticket.) I'm glad we stopped---it was worth a short visit.
