Instead of sunrise over Angkor Wat which is an absolute zoo at dawn (forget it!), go here instead and have the place to yourself! How can a temple complex comprising hundreds of smiling faces not make you happy?! Our guide took us to the spot were we could be photographed 'touching noses' with a huge carved head. In fact, be...

It is not attractive as Angkor Wat but there is interesting story behind Angkor Thom, it is nice to hear it from local guide.

This is beyond impressive and is definitely a must see!!! To think how people could have built this all those hundreds years ago, it's just difficult to comprehend! Buy 1 day unlimited visits to all sightseeing spots for 20 US dollars or 3 days for 40. Bear in mind that there is more to see that you might realise and... More

Part of the whole Angkor experience these temples are just amazing. The avenue of sculptures on the approach to one of the gates is fantastic.

Now this is a temple you cannot afford to miss. There is climbing involved but def worth it for the views! All the Buddha heads are incredible and the view from the top is like no other

Although the name Angkor Wat is more familiar for outside world, it is Angkor Thom which you should not really miss in Siem Reap. Angkor Wat might be the largest single religeous structure, Angkor Thom ( "Great City" ) is the real great city in Siem Reap. It houses multiple temples and is an ancient city built by 12th century... More

Our guide took us to this temple first, probably because it is the best restored that we visited.There is quite a bit to see and many photo opportunities. We were amazed that such an important site allows tourists in virtually every (safe) nook and cranny, unlike the US and Europe, that make rules and regulations to prevent visitors from harming...

I highly recommend you take a guide to see this temple. There are many nuances on the history and the buildings that would get lost without someone pointing them to you. The added wooden steps help greatly, it's better if you are fit since involves lots of climbing (if you want to see the upper reaches).
