This is the film location of the movie TOMB RAIDER starring Angelina Jolie. One of my favorites bec the cheaper priced quality authentic Khmer woodcraft souvenirs I am so fond of.

This site is huge! as such you need to plan to take your time when exploring the site, the carving and the towers with the four faces are amazing, the site is a current working site which is why I personally rated it better than Angkor wat. The wall reliefs are as good as you can see in the Nile... More

this was by far my personal favorite temple structure. We had a guide this day and learned so much! It made everything so much better. We saw monkeys!

The elephant ride was $15 for roughly 20 minutes of riding but the higher vantage point gave me some of my best photos of Angkor Thom -- well worth the money. Otherwise Angor Thom is a pretty cool place and well worth the visit

Even though Angor Wat is the famous one we loved this one the most. It was amazing from every angle, some parts felt like a labyrinth and made us wonder how did people used to move around there. The other amazing thing is original stairs which for us was very hard to use, but they have built new wooden stairs... More

Anyone can take photos here to rival the best National Geographic cover shoot. 360 degree breath-taking. NB I visited around 6 - 8 years ago not 2014 so look at other reviews for more up to date facility info. The historical structure will never change is it is this that I am giving top draw marks to .

A sprawling complex that includes more than just the Bayon. The climb up that and Baphuon is very steep. A pity the restored sculptures at the South Gate don't match the original stone - it will take a lot of time for them to age and acquire a similar state of wear. Take the time to explore the structures and... More
