With all the temples around Siem Reap this is one you need to make sure to visit. It is huge and has some really cool features like stone faces in the towers.

By far my favourite site to visit at Angkor. Absolutely fascinating to wander round and wonder what the faces are saying. It's a fairly large site when you get inside and you can spend a good bit of time here but it can get busy as it is one of the main attractions to visit. Take some good shoes and... More

I had no concept of The antiquity and history of the temple. It is. mind boggling to see what was created without any technology -- with only human labor.

The faces on this temple are amazing! There seem to be hundreds of them, and most of them are fairly well preserved. This is, however, one of the most popular temples, and even though we were there in the morning, it was already packed with visitors.

The temple is grand with a lot of huge Buddha faces, which make the temple unique to other temples. A must see in Siem Reap!
