We visited with 2 x2 year okra so decided to opt for Angkor thom (rather than Angkor wat). We saw elephants and monkeys. We hired a tuk tuk for the day and managed to get around with 2 prams, which we managed to get around just places, although we did leave the prams sometimes so we could climb around unimpeded...

I went Angkor Thom last year. That was one of the most beautiful and amazing experiences of my life. I love environment, amazing architecture and friendly local people. In my opinions this place can not visit in one day because there is very large area and many place to go. I will be back for sure.

Angkor Thom is the best place to start your Angkor Temple adventure and at the Bayon side. Full of fascinating faces of a DEVA, some huge,some tiny, it is interesting to see how many you can find. There are also many doorways that dont really go anywhere, it is quite intriguing. On the down side was that in high season,... More

Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Khmer Empire, was a fortified cit enclosing residences of priest, officials of the palace and military, as well as buildings for administering the kingdom.

Walk the perimeter of the property for a totally different perspective. The trails aren't clear, but you'll find your way. Of course you'll want to climb all over the ruins as well, but, from a distance, you start to appreciate the magnitude and majesty of this city.

Angkor Thom is a photographer's dream (I'm no expert, but I love taking photos). Like so many temples in Siem Reap Angkor Thom has so much details on the walls and statues. Just incredible! We did a 3 day tour and I highly recommend doing a private tour. Everyone should come here once!

Angkor Thom is huge and full of interesting historical facts, so I suggest a guide and if you are fit rough try a bike tour. I suggest Grasshopper, they were great, food was excellent. There are great gateways to view, four are entryways to the city, and each has four giant Buddha sculptures, very impressive. Take mosquito repellent especially if... More

The Angkor Thom experience includes several temples, terraces, walkways and pools. It's worth more than 1 day of your time. The carved faces of Bayon Temple are the highlight of Angkor Thom - don't miss it!

Prasat Thom is a 2-hour drive to the north east of angkor Wat, but is worth the drive. There are very few visitors here, and at the far end, there is a towering pyramid, similar to Mayan architecture. We climb the steps (and there are many) to the top for a beautiful 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside. Some... More
