“nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

made famous by the movie Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie, this was much better than Angkor Wat.
Weather in Cambodia can be very taxing so be prepared !

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Pictures do not do it justice. Try to go when it's quieter - the busloads of tourists can be overwhelming

“A definite must see, but watch out for scammers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is a very distinct complex with all the faces in the spires. Definitely a must see even if you only have one day. Watch out for uniformed police acting as tour guides that will try to charge you for their services. There were 2 there when we were there so were kept a distance from them since we had already been warned. This is another big complex so take water with you as its quite a hike to get to the water vendors. Lots of climbing is involved and there are 3-4 temples on this stop that go on for about a mile.

“A stone marvel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

King Jayavarman established this with Bayaon at the center. I think this is in the most dilapidated condition. This is covered by very tall wall and long moat.
