      Is anyone allowed to install lightings on Angkor Wat at night? I notice some Facebook pages show Angkor Wat was lit up at night. Is anyone allowed to stay there beyond 6 pm?

      Hot air ballooning in Angkor Wat

      by Chyan Online Now Jan 14, 2016 at 2:47 PM

      Is it worth hot air ballooning to see Angkor Wat? It costs US$15 per ride. Do you actually see Angkor Wat from the air?

    • Temples of Angkor on a bicycle?

      by Johan81 Online Now Sep 13, 2015 at 9:31 AM


      I´m going to Siem Reap in mid November and I´m, of course, going to see the Temples of Angkor. I will stay in a hotel in Seim Reap.

      I don´t like participating in group tours, I prefer to discover new places on my own so I can take my time.

      And I´ve read a lot and I would like to discover the temple area on a bicyle. Is it possible to hire a bicyle and do it on my own? Is it safe and easy?

      How long time will it take fron Siem Reap to Angkor Wat by bicyle and is it easy to navigate?

      Getting around Angkor Wat with limited mobility

      by CristinaB Online Now Jun 26, 2014 at 5:41 PM

      Hi, Im planning to have a quick trip to Angkor wat the first week of august (2 days).
      I use forearm crutches to walk and have a bit of a problem climbing too many stairs, a few are ok. I can walk long distances slowly stopping to rest a couple of times along the way.
      My question is... is it worth the trip? I understand I will not be able to do many things in there I want to know if I will be able to enjoy the basic parts and temples? or also if you know a tour company that I can contact who makes a special itinerary for my situation?

      Thank you for your help! Anything will be greatly appreciated.

      How dry is dry season in Angkor Wat?

      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?

      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.

      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.
