“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Fascinated with the entire place. A lot of walking, and steps to do and this is not recommended for elderly.

Definitely need to climb to the top of the tower. Climbing down part can be pretty scary with the 70 degrees tilt.

Given the information around the site, one does get a good view of ancient Khmer history and is fabulous irrigation works. Really a place to be preserved for future generations.

“Best to go to the temples in the morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

You'll definitely need to give yourself a few hours for this place alone. The East Gate is quite a climb & the Terrace of the Elephants is exquisite.
