      How dry is dry season in Angkor Wat?

      by Torgut Online Now Mar 7, 2014 at 12:40 PM

      Fellows... I will be visiting Angkor Wat in early April, which I understand is pure dry season. I was wondering if the vegetation around the temples becomes dry and not greenish at wall, the moss disappears from the walls where it usually is, and overall the landscape becomes brownish... any comments on this, please?

      What is a typical expense for a tuk tuk on a Friday to go through the Angkor Wat complex?
      Is it difficult to get last minute bookings as we would like to tour on 20 December 2013?

      Holiday

      by YikHin Online Now Dec 15, 2010 at 8:45 PM

      Hi...I am a student currrently planning a holiday trip to Siem Reap.
      We plan to go on Jan 10 2011.
      However, my uncle told me that his friend just got home from Siem Reap for holidays..
      He said that the enterance to Angkor Wat is closed. We are only able to view the complex from the enterance and we will not be allowed to enter the complex
      Is it true?
      Can someone inform me about the real situation?
      If I am not able to visit the complex, then it will be pointless for me to make a trip there.
      Thanks

      re: angkor temples

      by guo_mei_xin Online Now Dec 4, 2010 at 7:43 PM

      We're going to Angkor temples from Feb22-25. I do have several questions:

      1) Let's say budget is no problem, is it better to hire taxi or tuktuk? I know the weather will be hot, but what about the wind? I've been to places where even thought it's really sunny, the wind is a bit cool. So if that's the case, we'll just take tuktuk. But if it's really sunny and the wind is also very hot, then we plan to take a taxi.

      2) Re: the tour guide, is it a must to hire one for us to able to enjoy & understand the temples? Or we can survive with having Angkor Temples guide book?

      Thanks!

      whole day for angkor temples?

      by guo_mei_xin Online Now Nov 18, 2010 at 6:41 AM

      For my February trip:

      OPTION 1:
      Day 1 - 7:50am - arrival at Siam Reap airport
      - land mine museum, lunch, angkor temples (for sunset view)
      - dinner, night market sleep early
      Day 2 - early morning for sunrise view at angkor
      - whole day angkor or nearby temples
      Day 3 - 6am - off to siam reap airport

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      OPTION 2: (got this from someone who posted on this forum)
      Day 1 - 7:50am - arrival at Siam Reap airport
      - Baksei Chamkrong, Angkor Thom, the Bayon, the Baphuon, Phimeanakas,
      Terrace of the Elephants, Chau Say Tevoda, Thommanon, Eastern Baray, Ta
      Prohm and Banteay Kdei;
      Day 2 - (sunrise view) Angkor Wat, Banteay Srei, palm sugar making, Banteay
      Samre and Eastern Mebon
      Day 3 - 6am - off to siam reap airport

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      1) Which Option is better? Or do you guys have any other suggestions? I'm open to any.

      2) About the land mine museum, I'm still having second thought of going there because I'm not sure if it's worth it or not. Anybody been there recently?

      3) for the sunrise and sunset view, is there any specific temple that has the best view for sunrise or sunset? Or I can just go to any temple?

      4) for Option 2, on Day 1, can I go to all the places considering we'll just be arriving in siam reap airport at 7:50am?

      5) Is it better to have packed lunch and eat it on the angkor grounds, or go back to the hotel to have lunch?

      Thanks so much!

      How many days in Siem Reap and Angkor?

      by mikelisaanna Online Now Jul 14, 2010 at 11:31 PM

      We would like to visit the Angkor temple ruins on our vacation. We are a family of 3 (mom, dad, 9 year-old child). We love history and want to explore a lot of the temples at Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, etc. We would also like to spend a day or two doing something else for a change of pace. We are thinking that 5 or 6 day stay in Siem Reap would give us enough time to get our fill of temples without killing ourselves, and still give us a day or two to see some other sights as well. DOes that sound reasonable? With a 9-year old, we would rather spend less than a full day sightseeing and get in a little pool time each day to keep her happy and enthusiastic. Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

      Hello Forum Friends,

      I intend to visit Angkor Wat in Sept but I guess I will only be able to allot 2 days for it. So some questions prior to planning the trip:

      1. Will I be able to see the good sights in 2 days? If yes, can you share with me what are the best sites I can squeeze in the 2 days?

      2. Any recommendations on a clean, affordable hotel near Angkor Wat?

      3. What is the best (affordable and practical) way or mode of transport to go around SR in 2 days?

      4. If you can share interesting local dishes to try

      5. Any bazaars or flea markets in AW that have good souvenirs or local handicraft?

      Will truly appreciate your advise. Thanks in advance!

    • seeking for some information about Kbal Spean

      by ashfishbone Online Now Mar 26, 2010 at 9:37 PM

      I 'm planning to visit Kbal Spean in May. I thought it would be nice to walk along a small stream, but after reading a guide book,(...the river deepens...change to swimwear, take a shower under the waterfall...), I am a bit concerned. I am fit enough to walk for a while, but not a tomb raider.
      How deep the river can be? Is there any option not to cross the river or the waterfall? Is it better to join a tour or safe enough for a couple of travellers? Any information is welcome.

      thanks
