A must see, photos we have seen do not meet the real place. A guide made all the difference. We used Trails of Indochina, the best. We avoided the crowds and had great photo ops. A bit of walking.

Great place for a nice walk from terrace of elephants till the bayon temple. Shady place but may need long time to venture to all places. Make sure you have good shoes to walk around as the ground is not even. Just make sure you go to toilet first before visiting any temple. Toilets are scarce around there, Only available... More

750 years ago, at the height of the Angkorian Empire, this was the world's biggest city, a perfect square 2 miles by 2 miles, with one million inhabitants within and around its walls. What remains is still magnificent.

if you have time to go around and see the whole place, definitely do it. Best is to just get your tuk-tuk driver to drive around the whole place

If you do not have the time to cover enough, this 1 temple will do it all. Personally I would recommend it over Angkor Wat

It's a great place for photo shooting ! It's grand with all the stones as a solid background. Buildings are grand but a bit pitty that no proper protection being carried out. Hopefully, all the visitors appreciate the buildings & leave the great chance for our future generation to witness these grand buildings.
