Lots to see here from walls of figures to elephant terrace to the main temple to the lakes... Good place for that middle of the day tourist crush.

Another gem in Cambodias crown. This is one of my favourite temples based on its design. You will see four faced 'pillars' that jet out of the stone work. I found the craftsmanship insanely good considering it was built all those years ago. Again another massive temple so there's a lot to take in. I felt like a child on... More

Take time to look at both sides of the bridge. The guardians of good and evil are all different and some of the faces are great. Beware the monkeys by the entrance. Personally I don't find monkey cute, rather the opposite. Just be aware they are around, are wild and will attack if provoked.

this site is enormous - you would probably need a day just to see this amazing city completely. It is good to go with a guide as he will explain all the carvings and how the life was led in this city so many centuries ago

This temple is huge. Unfortunately it is is poor condition. There are many stairs and uneven surfaces to negotiate. The history is interesting.

Each temple / site is different. Each has its own character and attraction. We were four of us and we each have our own favourite.

again another beautiful structure - if a little more in ruins than some of the others though, you can still picture what it would have been like

The walled city of Angkor Thom is awesome, and I liked it better than the more famous Angkor Wat. It encloses wide stretches of jungle and many temples, including the Bayon and the Ta Prohm, and the day I spent walking and cyclying there, from one site to the next one, is the the highlights of my stay in Cambodia....

Very cool temple with all the faces! Loved this temple for the many faces and engraved walls. Got crowded quickly, but well worth it!!
