We decided that one trip to this spectacular ruin was not enough. We enjoyed our first visit two years hence, but this one was even better. The interaction between the roots and trees with the ancient temple is surrealistic. One gets the feeling of unity in a strange way. Our advice is just do it!

This is a great place to start your temple pilgrimage in Siem Reap. Early in the day, it is already abuzz with tourists, but it is easy to see everything, even if you can't get too many shots without people in them. Get a guide to help you enjoy the context of these and the rest of the area temples!!

Well, there is absolutely nothing to dislike about the whole Angkor realm. It is utterly amazing and we loved every minute of every day we spent there. To comprehend the workmanship for that era is gobsmacking.

Go early before the massive tour groups arrive and hog up the space with multiple photos of each other in front of every tree and root. Do they realize what an obstacle these selfish people pose (literally posing) for others who wish to enjoy the locations too. Still, Angkor Thom is an amazing place to visit.

Another temple well worth the visit. A bit further on Than Angkor Wat, the road is a bit rough, but worth going to. Nothing to dislike.

Angkor Thom is another beautiful temple in Siem Reap and a must to visit.It has very peaceful,smiling faces of Budda carved into the sandstone that are huge and look out at you from all over the temple.

Another great temple to put down as a must see. Early morning is a good time to visit this one. If you only visit a few temples, sdee this one.
