I would recommend that you don't miss this temple, the setting is great and there are some fantastic photo opportunities and wonderful carvings.

Another of my favorite temples at Angkor Wat. A smaller temple that has a lot to offer, especially for photographers. I likes the intricate stone work and was shooting away with my camera (got some amazing shots). And it also has trees that have overgrown the temple many ages ago. you can walk through (just like at Ta Prohm), enter... More

Rode here on bicycle as part of the 30k Temple circuit. All the Temples were amazing. Very hot day. Great time sitting in the shade watching the sights and wondering what it would have been like there when it was first built.

All the temples are really great, you can't go to Siem Reap without seeing them as that's what everyone does. They can get busy in the late morning but we found them to be quite quiet really.

This temple complex is less popular than Ta Prohm, but in my opinion has just as many photo opportunities with overgrown wall trees, is much less crowded, and is much larger and has more opportunity for climbing and exploration.

This temple, built by Jayavarman VII, is horizontally laid out and is a vast maze of corridor after corridor, courtyard after courtyard. Unlike Angkor Wat, there's no upward climb, as there is really no elevated central temple, making Preah Khan easier to navigate. But beware - one can easily get lost in all of those eerie, narrow hallways! I entered... More

This temple is one of the smaller temples in Angkor. Great carvings. You could definitely benefit from a guide here, but it is a great place to explore on your own as well.

this is I believe the biggest single temple in the area. It is really beautiful and worth the visit in my opinion, don't miss it.
