Just like the other reviewers say- this place is by passed by the tour guides / groups so you see a handful of people here. It's a pretty steep climb up and down (it's a little scary for someone scared of heights but nothing that a quick pep talk can't help you get over). You can be sitting in one... More

Renting my bicycle and wandering around Angkor, I stopped by on the way back to the Siem Reap. Was initially startled (and somewhat frightened) by the lack of tourists (i.e. none at all, especially the annoying tour groups) and thought it was haunted / off limits but decided to go up anyway. This temple doesn't use one of the 'artificial'... More

I can't believe more people don't visit this temple. The stairs are pretty steep, so you need to be careful, but it really us a gem of a temple.

Don't like tour buses full of tourists? Don't like rope and signs? A bit of danger? This temple is for you. Climb a long iffy staircase (why I now understand building codes) up to a deserted small shrine. Well preserved, hardly a stone out of place. Check out the inscriptions on the doorway. Walk back to the stairs, get a... More

The whole park is amazing! Amazing... The architecture of these temples are based on astronomical alignments and sacred geometry, very magical place. No doubt about it one... More

Though this temple is just down the road from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom it is easy to drive by. We stopped and our tuk tuk driver gave us some advice on climbing to the top. By this stage we had climbed every temple but the steps at Chamkrong were the steepest and narrowist. But once at the top it... More

Baksei Chamkrong is a stone's throw away from (on the outside) the South gate of Angkor Thom. It is also only about 200 metres away from the start point of the walk up Phnom Bakheng where most would go to see the sunset. So, before you go up for the hill for the sunset and especially if you are a... More
