When we visited Pre Rup around 3pm, we were the only people there which was great as the red sandstone makes for great pictures. Walking up the steps gives you a great view as this temple is higher and you can see further than many of the others. The steps were the traditional stone so were a bit higher and... More

We returned here to watch the sunset but sadly, it became cloudy and overcast. It is however, worth the climb to see and appreciate the view and a welcome breeze in the early evening. Definitely worth the climb, but take your time as steps are very uneven and few places to hold on to.

It is not one of the popular tourist temple destinations, but I am glad we visited this place. As it is one of the very few temples in Siem Reap made with harmony of "Red/Pink" laterite, bricks and sand stones. Another plus is the view from the upper terrace. A must see when you visit Pre Rup. It is along... More

This temple is high-rise and has a lot of towers. We loved going through the temple door ruins and stairs.

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.

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.
