Always Wanted to See Angkor Wat

by alice in travel land »

Should I just duck into Cambodia to see that, or are there more sights worth seeing there? I'll be in Asia for about two weeks. Thanks for your help.

Hi Alice, Angkor Wati s fabulous but  overrun by tourists; make sure you visit before dawn; you will need a guide to get around before it is impossible to see the temples. Siem Riep is a touristy island in a country that does not have that many tourists and although the country is still trying to recover from it's horrible recent past, it has a lot to offer. I think that Phnom Penh is particularly charming and so if you want to get away from the hoards to see Indochina then go there!

Other than Angkor Wat, We went to see Tuol Sleng Museum, The Royal Palace, The KIlling Fields, and a few temples.

I don't think it's a place where you spend a lot of time on. Although it would require you at least three days to see all of Angkor Wat - maybe two days if you go around by tuk tuk.

I have photos and trip report if you're interested:

If you have not already done so, also read this Frommer's thread:

HI TravelandNature: I don't see the thread you said I should see. Can you repost? But thanks to the rest for the info.

Look in this same Frommer's Forum.   Asia >> Cambodia.  The title of the other similar post is

Never been to Cambodia...what's a MUST see ? 

The Original Poster on that thread was CaptainAaRon.

I've heard great things about Flight of the Gibbon and they're opening a new location in Angkor!
