A must-see. The complex contains so many temples, all of which are exquisite. There are a lot of locals hanging around the ruins who try to befriend you, gamely show some spots to take a nice photograph, then ask for a huge 'donation' after. Hawkers are relentless, too. But still, a very wonderful site to visit.

To be honest both my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the exploration of Angor Thom. Our tuk tuk driver dropped us at Bayon and the crowds were not there. Many may have been put off by the afternoon downpour but that didnt deter us. What a huge temple precinct . So many areas to explore within Angkor Thom. All of... More

Angkor Thom actually refers to an extensive area which includes the spectacular temples of the Bayon, the Baphuon, Phimeneakas, the Temple of the Leper King and the Elephant Terrace among others. Try to get a good guide and brush up on the history of these structures to fully appreciate. It's just awesome to imagine those temples in the past like... More

Very amazing, and worth the visit. Just as good as Angkor Wat. Great photography opportunities. Didn't like the children begging, and trying to sell you postcards.

Amazing place to visit, well worth getting a guide, our hotel arranged one for us who travelled with us but gave us the story and history of the Angkor sites and even knew where to take some of the best photos.

It is one of the big Khmer cities built in 12th century. The gateway to Angkor Thom is through south gate which has a brilliant architecture. As you approached the gate, rows of statues carrying the huge snake can be seen on both side.There are other gates to Angkor Thom but South gate is commonly used and well maintained compared...

Everywhere you look, you see these magnificent humongous faces. We had a great time taking pictures and the guides have a wonderful way of taking great shots!
