“Bigger Than Angkor Wat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

If you have spent an hour or so at Angkor Wat and were impressed by the size then Angkor Thom is about five times bigger and just as impressive with its palaces and temples and open spaces.
You would need most of a day to see all of this area.

This is one of the best part of our tour.
Its unique set of Bayon faces that are enticing and intriguing...needs a good amount of physical sweat out to discover this wonderful site

“Angkor Thom - anytime of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is one that can be done during the hotter part of the day. Need to spend time to really come to terms with the enormity of the structures and enjoy the area

“So many to see!”

Many temples to see, each sufficiently different to make the full tour interesting, and each with a fascinating history.

“Be ready to walk and climb stairs, but wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Angkor Wat is beautiful, but be ready for the heat, humidity, and lots of walking and climbing! Very photogenic place and lots and lots of tourists.
