If you're doing the Angkor tour, and aren't a historian, then after a point all temples may start seeming the same. I had short listed 5 to see- Ta Prohm, Bayon, Angkor, Angkor Thom and one with the reclining Buddha. I believe each of these was different, and for a day tripper, those are the 5 I recommend. Angkor Thom is filled with history and legends. Worth it.
