Angkor Wat Tours
Why Visit Angkor Wat?
Cambodia’s star attraction is Angkor Archaeological Park, the incredible remnants of an ancient Khmer Empire embedded in Siem Reap, a lively tourist hub and gateway for Angor Wat tours. Amongst hundreds of temples and monuments, the crown jewel, Angkor Wat ranks as one of the world’s greatest ancient wonders and largest religious monument – iconic for its majestic five-tower structure.
Other highlights cover Angkor Thom, an inner-walled city and its centerpiece Bayon Temple, revealing 216, giant enigmatic faces carved into stone towers, Ta Prohm, famed for its ‘Tomb Raider’ notoriety and overgrown tree roots bursting through masonry and Ta Keo, a massive temple-mountain that mysteriously remains half-built. Angkor Wat tour packages also include lesser-visited yet impressive temples, such as remote Banteay Srei and its exquisite bas-reliefs.

Best Time To Visit Angkor Wat
Where Is Angkor Wat?
How Long Should I Spend There?
You could easily spend a week exploring Angkor Wat given the size of the temple complex, but we recommend you spend 3 days to see the main highlights. Try not to cram your visit into one day, unless you are really short on time. Many visitors don’t realize how much there is to see and do at Angkor!
Note that it can be quite hot in the area, so taking two or three shorter trips to the various temples will also be less tiring than trying to see all highlights at one go.
Do I Need A Visa To Travel To Angkor Wat?
Visitors need a visa to enter Cambodia, but you can apply for one when you go through customs. A tourist visa lets you stay in Cambodia for 30 days. If you prefer to get your visa ahead of time, you can apply online before your trip.
Do I Need To Get Any Vaccinations Or Malaria Tablets Ahead Of Travel?
Although no vaccinations are officially required to enter Cambodia, most doctors recommend that you receive the typhoid and hepatitis A vaccines and begin a regime of malaria pills before arriving. If you travel to certain parts of the country, consider getting vaccinated for yellow fever, hepatitis B, rabies, or Japanese encephalitis.
What Is The One Thing I Shouldn’t Miss At Angkor?
The Angkor Archaeological Complex has no end of beautiful temples, but make sure you take the time to visit Banteay Srei, one of the smallest but most well preserved. Adorned in intricate wall carvings hewn from delicate rose-pink sandstone, this temple is considered the “jewel of Khmer art”.
What Is The Local Cuisine Like?
There are only small street-style stalls serving snacks at Angkor, so we’d recommend dining in the nearby city of Siem Reap instead. There, you can find many markets serving delicious Cambodian food of all kinds, like bamboo sticky rice, stir-fried noodles, seafood, and curry.
You are permitted to bring food into the complex but you should not eat inside or near the temples which are sacred religious sites. Any litter should be taken away with you when you leave.
Is Angkor Wat Safe?
Angkor Wat is generally a safe place, but there are some things of which to be aware. Be prepared for peddlers to try to offer to share special tours around the temples. These people are usually scam artists, although they are generally not violent.
Pickpocketing, although not prevalent, has been reported at Angkor, so like in all tourists destinations it is sensible to be mindful of your belongings.
When Is The Best Time Of Year To Go To Angkor Wat?
The best time to visit Angkor Wat is usually during Cambodia’s dry season between November and April. Be aware, however, that you will have to deal with more tourists. If you prefer a quieter scene, you can visit throughout the rest of the year, although the weather is usually rainy and hot.
Is Angkor Wat A Good Family Destination?
Absolutely! Kids tend to find Angkor Wat fascinating, with its many historical, jungle-clad spots to explore. However, bear in mind that it is a religious site and tourists are expected to dress and act with respect. Please ensure your children understand this and behave in an appropriate manner.
Is Angkor Wat A Good Honeymoon Destination?
Angkor Wat can be a fascinating honeymoon destination. If you enjoy history, culture, and adventure, it’s a perfect choice. Our agents can even plan some special events there for you, such as a candlelight dinner in a rice field or at one of the temples!
There is also a number of spectacular resorts in the area, where you can enjoy the highest comforts, gourmet cuisine and spa treatments.
