All of the temples at the Angkor Wat "complex" are amazing - and it's impossible not to be in awe of them. Some are beautiful because of the craftsmanship, or the carving or how nature has embedded itself within the walls. Some are simply beautiful tributes to family, and others are remains of grandiose homages to deities...all of the temples... More

I love the ruins and history of this place. It was very crowded during the morning we went and it is during the off peak season! Gotta prepare yourself for the uneven surfaces and the other tourists!

The place is easy to walk as flat area. Bayon Temple is interesting. You just have to imagine what happened here many centuries ago.

Beautiful surroundings but the temple is just barely better than a pile of stones. Of course you will visit as you paid $20 for the privilege, but it's not worth it.

Gorgeous entrance into Bayon city temple!!! Beautiful entrance with tug of war depicted between the Gods on the left and the demons on the right. Get a great guide to make your experience memorable, we had amazing experience with Happy Angkor Tours!!!! Ask for Mr. Bun!

Not a temple but an entire walled city of 9sq km that served as the ancient royal capital of the Khmer Empire from approx 1181. With an estimated population of 1 million, it was far bigger and grander than any European city at the time.

What a pleasure to be able to walk around a building that is so old and just try to imagine what was going on so many years ago. You can get some amazing photos. Worth the visit. It was really humid when I was there so be prepared to pace yourself if you are not used to that sort of... More

We visited Angkor Thom in the afternoon and it found it wonderful - a smaller temple but very impressive. The face on the entrance is overpowering to scaring away any enemy. More faces inside make the 12 km trip well worthwhile. Rain almost spoiled it for us but we persisted and made it through. We plainly did not have the... More

Except for Angkor Wat, it is the second one you must visit. It is so large and has 8 small temples. Bayon and Bapoun is great. Terrace of Elephant is quite interesting. The view is peaceful and comfortable to take a sit anywhere.
