Another amazing piece to the jigsaw that is Angkor. The water looked lovely with the temple backdrop. It was great wandering around with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Not too much history, just enjoy your surroundings!! Must have time it right, hardly anyone there.

I visited 7 temples; if I was ranking them, I would put this one after Ankgor Wat, Ankgor Thom, and Bantey Srie. I think those three are must-see. This one is tied with Ta Prohm, for me. It is right up there with the best temples. There are many places to explore, interesting carvings to look at, places where the... More

It was a pleasant surprise. Impressive access with statues on each side and nice gate ( good sunlight at 2pm), then a bit like Ta proem but smaller and in a better shape: the surprise, on the right side, a "greek" temple with columns etc... Do not miss it. For us No 3 after Angkor Wat and Bayon.

Hugely detailed ruins, partially reconstructed, was not crowded, despite the other sites being mobbed with visitors. Well worth the visit.

This temple is not so crowded like some others and has a lot of atmosphere... We did spend 1 1/2 hours here and still did not see everything.

Even though this one had more ruins, it was situated in more of a natural setting. I felt more alone in this one than the masses of people rushing through all the other more known temples. Every corner found a new discovery. I had the opportunity to sit down and just enjoy being in the temple without the mad rush... More

This is a beautiful temple which is striking in its long corridors where one can see door after door going into the temple. there are many rooms connected to this temple, one can explore for a long time and barely see anybody else. I came upon an old lady making prayer ties and she blessed me with a beautiful red... More
