Spectacular ruins of the Khmer empire capital

This is a superb site and must do visit from Siem Reap. Easily accessible, the spectacular architecture of the Bayon temple with its giant heads is quite haunting. Go there!

Being one of the seven ancient wonders of the world does not do this temple justice. It is a mind-blowing experience. To see the faces on the temple pillars is straight out of a movie set and could not have been more impressive. The carving details and the statues put you back into a different time when religion actually meant... More

This place is wonderful I think that in some aspects it might be better and more interesting than the main wat. The architecture is amazing. This temple should not be missed. Its worth the pain in hot sun. Ask your tour guide to explain the concept behind the four faces of buddha. Very very interesting place. Not to be missed.

Angkor Thom was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer empire. Angkor Wat is magical; Angkor Thom is both magical and awesome. It was established in the late twelfth century by King Jayavarman VII and covers some 10km2. It contains many of the important structure of the Park, massive gates, bridges, pathways, water cisterns, moats, towers, carvings,... More

There are many temple sites in Siem Reap and this is by far the largest, which is enough reason to visit.

Angkor Thom encompasses a large area, enclosed by a crumbling wall and five gates. Look at the North, South and East gates as well as the unmissable Bayon. The other architecturtal features should not be glossed over as they add to an impression of the majesty of the original.

I visited all the temples and they were well worth the $20 and a hot day in the sun. The history is amazing and you cant go to Siem Reap without a day trip to the temples. Lots of people so allow plenty of time

We were blown away with Angkor Thom, we visited it after Angkor Wat and both of us preferred this site. The detail and complexity of the temples was incredible. A must do
