Angkor Wat 101: Everything You Need to Know About Visiting What Was Once the World’s Biggest Civilization

Fodor's Logo By Johanna Read of Fodor's | Slide 1 of 25: Can I see the highlights in one day?

Can I see the highlights in one day?

Yes, but barely. It will be a whirlwind, but in one day you can see the sunrise at Angkor Wat (though probably not have time to climb to the temple’s top tier afterward), photograph Bayon temple’s faces, and see trees “growing” out of a temple like Ta Prohm. You will miss out on the magic of Angkor though, as you won’t have time to escape the crowds, explore, and get a (little) lost.If you buy your ticket at 5 p.m. the day before, you can enter the park to watch the sunset as well as get an early start the day for which your ticket is valid. As of publishing, a one-day ticket to Angkor costs $37 US.
