Each of the sites in the Angkor Archaealogy Park is different, so don't restrict your time to just one. It is good to buy a ticket for two or three days. Go early in the morning to avoid large crowds and this time of day is more peaceful and adds more to the atmosphere. The detail in the stone work... More

When I was there there was a lot of reconstruction, so that took away quite some of the temple's charm. Otherwise, the faces are really cool and impressive but the stairs are very tiny and super steep. It's quite a small temple but well worth a visit!

In its decayed state this temple still conjures up images of the grandeur of the Khmer empire. The bas reliefs are some of the most beautiful to be found anywhere.

Just explore every knook and cranny and imagine what it was like in it's hay day. Do not be intimidated by all the steps you have to climb.

Travelled in late May 2015 when the weather is hot and the madding crowds are minimal. Would strongly recommend going off-peak. We were left at some sites almost on our own to marvel at the architecture and history. I’d strongly recommend Vannak Tour Guide and visiting outside of peak season. With relatively so few other tourists and a great guide... More

As part of the Angkor Group temples you will be able to visit this Bayon Temple in one way altogether.. explore the world heritage site by Unesco!

This is one temple I will considier a must see! Angkor Thom itself is a gorgeous place, and the temples within the Angkor Thom are so beautiful! I saw the Bayon from afar, when the tuk tuk driver dropped us. I was awed by the sight, of the building, with faces of Lokeshevara peering at us from all angles. It... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this ancient Hindu Temple in Siem Reap. We had a great English-speaking guide with us, who pointed out the history and significance of the most important carvings. Great place for photos. Totally unspoiled. Don't miss a visit to this Temple if in the area of Siem Reap. We got to see elephants and monkeys... More

I've been wanting to visit these temples for such a long time. Not disappointed. Take a guided tour to visit the temples Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm. It really is worth the extra dollars to have a guide, help you imagine the temples in all their beauty.
