Pre Rup was one of my favorite temples in Angkor area, one of the few able to favor me with a wonderful panoramic view. Arrived in front of the temple by tuk tuk I could visit the entire complex just by showing my ticket to the guard, an undemanding steps to reach the top of the temple, hence a terrace... More

This temple is not to be missed as you tour around Angkor. It was so nice to climb up the steps and be rewarded by a fantastic view and a refreshing breeze. Make sure you ask the tuk-tuk driver to stop here. It will only take an extra 15 minutes to appreciate it's beauty.

Nice walk til reach the top of the temple, where you will gather to a fantastic view. Most people come here to see the sunset.

The view from the top is amazing and you will be spechless with the view. Very nice and worth every sweat and steps. One of the beautiful and big temple! Not much crowd at morning.

The view from the top of this temple is definitely worth the climb. The steps are steep, but if you are relatively in-shape it isn't too bad. Small temple footprint, but great views from the top.

A stop on the Big Circuit and worth a visit. The views from the top shows you a lot of the rainforest and the tops of some other temples. There are steep steps that will need to be climbed but we were joined by a couple of 70-year old, overweight americans who handled it well.

The temple is built entirely of laterite, sandstone and brick which gives it its warm tone. Identical in size and shape to East Mebon, it is associated with funerary functions. Standing alone in the countryside, it is a nice place to view sunsets away from the crowds of Phnom Bakheng. Climb to the top for a lovely view of the... More

This was one of my favourite temples - it's majestic and tall and has a very particular feeling to it. It's famous for the sarcophagus, so don't miss that area on your visit! We arrived mid-morning, and there were not many visitors. It is not a complicated temple, so you don't need a lot of time, but it's definitely worth... More

I would say, this temple is the most beautiful of them all. Not only it is tall and high, it also made me and fiance feel that we are somewhere in egypt. I love the structure and built of this temple. It is unique and gorgeous. It was worth the sunburns and tanning that i got. Preferably, ideal time would... More

Pre Rup was one of our favorite spots to sit and take in all of its beauty. The surroundings are beautiful, too. Be prepared to be asked multiple times by multiple people and small children to purchase souvenir items. We decided to buy a book guide of the park, which made for a great coffee table book when we got... More
