“My favorite temple!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I absolutely love this temple. Probably even more than Angkor Wat itself. If you only get to see three temples, see Angkor Wat, this one (the face temple), and Ta Phrom (the one in the Tomb Rainder movies).

“Happy stone faces everywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

It's just amazing to see the massive works involved in the construction of these huge stones faces at a period of time when modern tools were not yet available.

An amazing piece of massive architectural work not to be missed.

“Indescribable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Words fail when trying to explain Angkor's temples. Try and go at times when the big package tour buses aren't around or it gets crowded

“Very nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

You kan make reservation true a travelagency but better is to do it with Tsoi. He speaks English, has a car for 4 passengers, airco and cool water. His phonenumber: 01/7976308. You can also "rent"him for other trips. I used him as a private driver for 12 days (1.200 km). He's not expensive and reliable.
