We did all the main temples and this and Angkor Wat were our favourites. It costs a bit more as it's about an hours drive away from Siem Reap but it's definitely worth it. You've come all the way to Cambodia so you might as well shell out a bit more! We probably took more photos here than the other... More

Similarly to Taprom Temple, this one was damaged by human and also nature, which makes it hard for us to see much of the inside of the temple. We can walk on the recently-made deck and see the gorgeous view of the exterior. The nature may cause the temple wreckages but somehow it makes the temple looks stunning in another... More

Very worth a visit, its much cheaper and less less less crowded than the more famous ankor temples. Only downside it's a little further outside town. I used my moto to get there. Tuk tuk's can get you there as well.

A bit far from Siem Reap, but well worth it. I recommend coming here after spending the morning at Phnom Kulen National Park. This temple will make you feel like you are smack dab in the middle of 'Indiana Jones' being chased by boulders. It's truly being overtaken by the jungle and crumbling down dramatically. They built a wooden catwalk... More

We left our hotel in Siem Reap at 6am to beat the crowds, and it was well worth it! We had the place to ourselves for about 45 minutes before buses showed up, and it made the experience so much more intimate and mystical. I felt like I was in a fantasy novel! Around 8:45/9:00am the tourists began to pour... More

This temple is a rare find, as it is pretty much as it was discovered, A total ruin... But in saying that, it is huge and was actually a predecessor for the Angkor Watt temple. Most of the rooms have collapsed in, making it a huge pile of giant Stone, that has been eaten by the jungle. But unlike the... More

After Angkor Wat itself this is my favorite sight in the greater Angkor area. The temple is mostly unrestored, with a lot of stones all over the place. Ask one of the employees for a tour outside of the visitors trail and you can hop and climb like Indiana Jones!

This temple is located about 75 km from the central of Siem Reap. Almost all part are destroyed, but it is interesting temple with big stones. Many big trees are around the temples. Some of them grows on the walls.

This temple was our first that we visited in Seim Reap and it was a great choice to experience it first on the temple list. Untouched and beautiful
