A large complex

I enjoyed the entrance to Angkor Thom, with the naga and the gods and demons flanking the bridge across. The area itself is vast with lots to see.

Guess it is obvious. If you go to Angkor Wat you must visit this one. It is as impressive as the rest of the sites around the place. Go around lunch time (is true for most places) as the tour groups are having lunch (I got many pictures with only my family on it!)

Angkor Thom, the “Great City” was the last capital of the Khmer empire. If you just reading about it, or looking at it on the map, you can’t realise how vast is this area. When you read the details, the 12 km wall surrounding it, you easily can think, -so what? The Chinese Great Wall is longer. - You have... More

Our first temple of this complex and it was very special - the worlds largest city in the 12th century and the stone faces are truly special. The Bayon temple at its center has 216 enigmatic smiling stone faces and the adjacent terrace of the elephants also merits a look. We visited at about 10am before going onto Ankor Wat.... More

I like the old city very much. Even though we visited it during preparations for new year celebrations - which meant a lot of people working in the Angkor Thom, but still fascinating with the faces on the towers at the city gates, ruins with vast displays of bas-relief depicting the various gods, goddesses, and other-worldly beings from the mythological...

What a privilege to be able to view this wonderful temple. Truly a place to marvel. Lots of climbing and as we were visiting in April very hot so come early and bring plenty of water. A must see when visiting this temple complex.

It was a great introduction to an otherwise, amazing wonder. However, the king's face Jeya something was plastered everywhere, ie the four faced facades/carvings which made it much of a grand self indulgent gesture of his vanity. But I suppose during his time, that was his way of putting his stamp on it. So in some twisted way, we owe... More

I actually preferred this to Angkor Wat but that is personal. The whole visit was a great day. Soak up the atmosphere

I loved the way the jungle was taking over the ruins, and the pride the people of Cambodia have in restoring the temples.
