“a must if you're in Siem Riep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Another spectacular temple at Ankor Wat complex.
It was super quiet and although this is only a little temple where you can spend a couple of minutes, the tree is pretty cool.
The elephant ride was a nice experience too. My friend pressured me into it and I actually enjoyed it.
Highly recommend this place.... get a driver to help get you round the Ankor complex!

“Large Scale”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Ruins of a large old city. Bayon is the best attraction in Angkor Thom. The rest are Baphuon, Royal Palace and the terraces. The terraces and Royal Palace are mostly in ruins. Baphuon is a restored site.

“Rainy October visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

It was pouring during our afternoon visit to this distinctive temple. This is the one with the large Buddha faces. Inside, the walls were detailed with carvings showing the history and culture of the khmer people leaving at that time.nthese were surprisingly in good condition. Nearby we visited the Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leopard King.

“The old capital a must see as well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat are the musts of any visit. All other parts add significant to your understanding of this place.

The whole Angkor Park area covers 400 sq kilometers with so much to see. The old capital from the entrance gate to the temple in the middle is so interesting to see. Don't miss it.

“Don't underestimate the quantity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

It's huge, full of temples, vast expanse and full of variety.

I suggest a full day or at least long day is not a stupid option.

It's not just Bayon and Elephant temple.
