I have traveled all over in many countries that have Maya ruins but seeing the temples in siem reap were way more than I expected.I thought they were better than any Mayan ruins I have seen.and definately worth visiting any of them.

What can you say, the whole reason we came ½ way around the world. Amazing!! Bring water a camera and take your time. Don't try to see everything in one day. The Wat's just keep on getting better. Another not to miss sight

I preferred Angkor Thom to Angkor Wat as it was much ore intimate. Angkor Wat is teaming with tourists seeing this fabulous location but it is not an intimate experience

Angkor Thom is never to be forgotten. It is really the most unique and spectacular of the Cambodian temples. I loved it. As a teacher of history, I was overwhelmed. Go in January or February when the crowds are more manageable and the weather is more dry.

I will say the design is very much after the Tang Dynasty city in the 9th century. Per history data, Angkor Kingdom did send embassies to China during that time. Nice to walk around the Thom, it's not that crowded and allow you to wander among the wonderful architectures.

Amazing, but without a good guide or some research it becomes difficult to understand your place within the overall temple. Much larger than Angkor Wat, but not easy to appreciate it unless you realize how all the sites interact.

The intricate details of the temple is really awesome. I was imagining the time when the ancient people of Cambodia are building the temples. It's a must see when you visit Cambodia. We were able to do the temple visit from 8am to 4pm. Make sure to wear a hat or bring a scarf or bandana and apply sun screen... More

My favourite temple... The 'jungle' tomb raider experience. Amazing. Some reconstruction work going on so be prepared for scaffolding and workmen.
