Our trip to Siem Reap was just one amazing experience after another. This site was just one more place where we were memorized by the beauty of this ancient culture. A must see for everyone going to Cambodia.

Again, another great venue - just not one of the best in the area. As I write in other reviews, there are so many great places in this area, but you need to just do a few each day or else they all begin to blend together. Anywhere else in the world this would be a major attraction. Here it's... More

This was one of our favorites and we would have missed out on a lot if we didn't walk up the very steep steps. The view surrounding the area isn't the best but it gives you are a great vantage point to see how the temple is laid out.

If you have only a short time in Siem Reap to see the temples, give this one a miss. It is very small. Going to see all the temples are quite tiring. So if you want to conserve your strength, then see the bigger ones. It is on the way to Banteay Srey so if you go on a tour,... More

Wandering through the paths at Pre Rup was an extraordinary experience. Many huge trees had grown into and become part of these fantastic buildings. Actually, just looking at them was breath taking! I have been to Cambodia (am wearing something I bought there as I write this review) 3 different times and would be willing to go again and again.

This 10th century (?) architecture is one that is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is possibly more of spiritual centre - although most of the sculputures have been defaced and almost badly destroyed! Why this has been left in this pathetic state - a brow raising question! Although one needs much less time to go through the whole structure, the... More

Really glad we chose to go here for sunset. There weren't that many people here and we were treated to a double rainbow! Apparently rainbows are quite commonly viewed from this site according to one of the guards. They've put in a modern-ish staircase, so the steep climb is manageable and it's well worth a trip for the views from... More

This place is simply breath taking . The most beautiful sculptures in the clusters of the temples are the bewitching faces on each of the walls here .The once worshipped statues almost look desolate without the regular worshipers .the crowd mostly consists of the tourist holding the 3-4, day pass . If you are lucky you may wines the a... More

We stopped on the way back from the Landmine Museum to break up the drive. Another temple in the park that is quiet, so we could explore with only a few other people around. There are three plateaus to be climbed, each giving a better view over the surrounding land and the temple foundations. It's quite basic, but well worth... More

Not much of a character in term of the terms of carvings. They are the same as other temples in Siem Reap. The differences lay in the construction - more a Maya architecture than the Siem Reap style in other temples. Enjoy a good climb to the top - much easier than other temples.
