Angkor Thom is actually the best remained city of ancient civilization of khmers. It gives opportuniny to roam between ancient ruins and imagine the life of million people who lived and died under the rule of khmer empire. Gorgeous, picturesque, interesting, mysterious.

You have to go and see this. This is overlooked by many due to time constraints, but it is a must. Walking through and seeing all the temples, the faces, the trees and all is just fantastical.

Booked the elephant ride around Angkor Thom through out travel agent and it lasted for 15 minutes and cost a considerable amount. Angkor Thom itself was exceptional.

We bought the seven day pass and stayed in Siem Reap for 8 days and nights in January 2015. Hire a tuk-tuk driver in Siem Reap anywhere near the pub street or market and keep your wits about you. A tuk-tuk driver will drive you to the furthest wats from Siem Reap, wait for an hour or so, and then... More

Visited Angkor Thom which was the centrepiece of the ancient city of Bayon with 54 towers decorated with more than 200 smiling faces ! While there, why not visit the Royal Enclosure Phimeanakas, Ta Prohm Temple and Forrest Temple and the Terrace of Elephants and the Terrace of Leper Kings. To get the 'full tour' go with a reputable guide!... More

One of the three must visit sites of historical ruins in Siem Reap. The other two are of course Angkor Wat and Bayon Temple. They are all within a short ride from each other. Would highly recommend to hire a guide as the visit would be more meaningful viewing the place with a commentary. A good guide would give you... More

The name is a bit confusing: within this area you actually have the Bayon and other temples like the Baphuon and the Terrace of the elephants and the terrace of the Leper King. The Baphuon, 5min walk from Bayon is nice but clearly a big notch below Bayon: however the access through the paved walkway is impressive and very nice... More
