I enjoyed visiting here as much as Angkor Wat. Best to visit before there and early in the day before it gets too hot.

This is a huge place with lots of temples. You can easily get lost in this place. Really awesome! I would love to visit again and take more time to see this majestic compound.

Angkor Thom is the ancient city that houses Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple among many other remains of the ancient civilization that ultimately abandoned the area. Very impressive! We walked throughout many of the distinctive areas of Anglor Thom and found them all to be incredible.

Visited Angkor Thom after Angkor Wat. Smaller temple and stairs to climb sometimes with loose stones. Gets quite cramped with all the tourists vying for the best photo. There are over 50 statues of the 4 face Buddha and areas of the temple have been destroyed when they tried to convert the Buddha images to Hindu gods. Apparently a week... More

Big call I know but we enjoyed visiting this temple more than Angkor Wat. The towers with faces carved into the four sides were wonderful.

Like angkor wat, this place is stunning, although smaller than angkor wat i think it has more features to it, magnificent. There are elephants you can ride on too, i think it's 15 dollars.
