A good friend always told me not to miss Angkor Thom, that it was even more worth seeing than Angkor Wat. Of course my hopes were all up and I was quite disappointed. Besides Banyon the rest of the temple complex (it's huge, consists of mores sights) was OK. Considering that there are some really fabulous other less known sights... More

One of the 3 main temples to see in the park, would be a shame if you missed this as it brings more history and stories.

Some more amazing temples. The whole complex is just incredible. The views from the top of the temples are amazing.

Make sure you don't allow your guide to convince you to skip the remaining ruins of the palace and the temple behind 'The Elephant Gate'.

This temple is pretty close to Ta Prohm, there's a shortcut that you can take to get there quickly. Neat temple that you should stop by to see if you're in the area. This can be a pretty short trip.

After we had visited Ta Prohm, our guide brought us to the East Gate of Angkor Thom. Here we stopped for a short while to admire this old gateway with its carvings of the Buddha and the balustrade across the old moat in the form of a seven-headed naga (cobra) - although this latter was somewhat damaged.

Against Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm, this must be the third most visited site within the Angkor Wat Park. This site contains The Bayons, Baphuon, Elephant Terrace etc and you should allow a good 2 hours to explore and experience the complex in it's entirety. Again, you will need to use a good guide to organise a visit when the... More

We really enjoyed the early morning cycle here from siem Reap. The trees were full of yellow blossom and the air full of butterflies as we rode there. One of the main advantages of arriving before 6am is how cool and quiet it is. The bus loads of tourists arrive on their temple tours at about 8am. It was beautiful... More

Rode here on bicycle as part of the 30k Temple circuit. All the Temples were amazing. It was really hot and without the breeze on the bike to cool me I powered through the water. Ate lunch with the Tuk Tuk drivers in the carpark - all in all a great experience. The people that built these Temples sure were... More
