overcrowded with tourists looking for cheesy photo ops with their friends. It wasn't that impressive either sadly and there are other temples in the area which have trees growing in them too.

I loved the way the carnage of rubble and huge trees disorientates you. So many picture opportunities, which are completely unique! You would regret not making time for Ta Prohm.

A must see when visiting the Angkor Wat temples. One only gets a small idea what it must have been like when the temples were discovered in the 19th century. There are still some trees that have grown on and over the temple. It does get, of course, very crowded with hordes of tourists, but it's still worth seeing. And... More

This is such a surreal temple. The trees growing out of the temples are truly amazing. The roots are huge and look like giant serpents. This is an unmissable temple.

Our guide took us to visit Ta Prohm during a quiet period of the day to avoid the big crowds. This temple is well known as it was featured in the movie 'Tomb Raiders' starring Angelina Jolie.

Again, lots of restorarion works underway. I am not sure if people want to see a restored temple, which cost lots of money, and after a while, you get tired of hearing the same story - the Sri Rama epic, the Hindu and the Buddha teachings, the Apsara dancers, the list goes on. It is an attraction itself to see... More

Whilst under severe renovation, this is must if you do not plan to visit all/many temples. Both our kids loved it . With two kids, 8&11 we only did 2/3 temples each visit, plus it's very hot, living in Singapore, I thought it would be fine - much hotter

World heritage and nature monument in one. For me the most impressing temple after Angkor Wat as the highlight.
