Great as it's largely off the tour-bus route

We went at 3.30-5.30pm, and managed to avoid the huge tour bus groups that plague Angkor Wat. It's a mini Ta Promh without the crowds

Most of this temple is in ruin but what is left gives a good idea of what it was. Notable are the 4 concentric walls that demarcated the different areas used by for different purposes - shrine, living quarters for monks, students and royal attendants.

We visited after lunch, and even in high season, had the place nearly to ourselves.

This temple is not as highly rated as some others but was my favorite. There were plenty of spots for climbing and exploring the many original details. There was not much of a crowd.

The Preah Khan temple complex situated at the northern edge of the Angkor Archaeological Park is one of the most significant buildings erected during the ancient Khmer empire. Dedicated by the great king Jayavarman VII to his father in 1191, Preah Khan serves today as an outstanding example of a large linear temple complex in a dense jungle setting. Rectangular... More

Wish could have spent the full day reading, painting, picnicking here- but its a short trip to siem reap and had other... More

This isn a fantastic temple with a deep jungle feel. Seems less visited than the other temples and easy to explore. A lot see in this overgrown and crumbling temple. This and Tab Prohm are my favorite temples.

Outstanding ruin with great trees and crumbling walls. It tells you a lot about the building and about 12C Cambodia.
