Although I'd never really heard of this place before I was really impressed with the size and all that was in this gated former city

Just excellent. Just go and see it, along with all the other temples around. It's another world. Just remember, you won't be the only people there.

This temple is pretty close to Ta Prohm, there's a shortcut that you can take to get there quickly. Neat temple that you should stop by to see if you're in the area.

A huge huge area, too much to see in the time we had. Stop at Bayon Temple & at least one of the gates of the ancient city.

I like the temples because its really incomparable with the design, structure and basically, its really a huge place that if you'll visit you'll be wondering how the people and the monks pray and live there. Always take note to wear rubber shoes or comfortable shoes, because it is so tiring and really perspiring. Also, do not forget your water... More

This Temple City is just fantastic. You really do need a great guide to help you thru this place and to understand just what everything means and what has taken place here. It really amazes me how the intricate the carvings can be and how uniform they are. Allow your heart and mind to be truly open while soaking up... More

The image of Buddha's face on the top of the Wat is amazing! Just walking around the grounds and through the ruins & corridors is an adventure.

Stunning backdrop for my favourite photo from Cambodia. intriguing temple complex. So pleased to have a guide explain the history, share some stories and show us where to stand and how to pose to 'kiss the Buddha'. The faces and the depth of architectural detail made for some great photo moments. A must do and must see.

So many temples & so much history, you must have a guide with you to explain what you are seeing to get the full benefit. Allow plenty of time so you can absorb it all.
