This temple ruin was ok. Set in a large area. There are about three or four different ruins to see. Easy to cycle around.

This must have been a really beautiful temple, the remains are nice to discover even if a lot is gone already. We arrived with our bike, ride on the bridge (nice to see the birds and the flowers on the water) and walked around the ruins. I liked it there because it was so quiet, we only saw 2 other... More

I visited this Wat in the late evening by bicycle and it was spectacular with the sun setting! As it was not as famous as the other wats, there was no one else there. Wat Phra Pai Luang is still one my favorite Wat; that made me feel a bit like Indiana Jones….an Adventurer, visiting the ruin of a Great... More

Looking at the sitting Buddha and learning the rise and fall of Khemer Empire make you reflect on the vicissitude of historic events. A good learning experience

Although this large set of ruins is largely dwarfed by it's more famous counterpart Wat Si Chum (and with good reason) it still represents a expansive set of ruins which sees very little tourists through it. I noted the review by the gent on 12th July 2012 saying he was charged to get in. I think when you pay 200... More

This temple is included in your admission to the north temples, but it's not that interesting compared to the Wat Si Chum across the road. It's only worth visiting because it's free with admission. If you are short on time, skip it and go see the others.

Another wat you have to buy a ticket for (110 tb)......ridiculous.......... The site is ok but nothing more. Outside the walls you have to take a road to your left and after 1,5 km you arive at the ticket counter. But......there is a bridge, and there is no ticketcounter. Just dont take the way to the left. After 100 meter... More
