“Another fabulous temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

So we loved this temple but after a while of seeing so many temples everywhere it just gets abit much, so choose two or three temples - go see them, take pics, then go do something else like the markets and try and talk to the people.

“Just amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This ancient city just keeps throwing marvels at you. To see everything would take weeks. It is getting a bit crowded, but is an incomparable spectacle which I rate on a par with the pyramids in Giza.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Angkor Thom is unbelievable. We`ve never been to the Pyramids in Egypt - but these temples must match them. The feats of engineering to move the stone, the building and carvings are incredible - as is the size of the moat surrounding the temple complex, all dug out by hand !

“Angkor Thom..Ruins amidst moss and vines..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Much documented and photographed for its mystery and beauty,Angkor Thom rests in its secret space awaiting its discovery,as if,for each individual traveller,it is revealing itself for the very first time ..It's weathered stones and fallen obelisks lie quietly on beds of moss ,held tight for centuries in twisted arms of vines.Around its edges tangled jungles lie,dripping green! To visit Angkor Thom is like no other place I have ever experienced..Wild and Holy!
