If you are in Siem Reap it would be a travesty to miss Angkor Thom. It is full of temples and Wats that are all a must see... Bayon, The Leper King/ Elephant Terrace even the gates are amazing crossing the moat on bridges with gods on one side and demons on the other.... At the very least half a... More

Quite hard to get ones head around the age and mechanics of simply getting this structure built nigh on 1000 years ago....the detailed smiling faces done in a Mona Lisa smile style bear down wonderfully! A memory forever....

Start here in the morning, since most tourists will gather at Angkor. Take your time to wonder around and explore. Plan at least 2 days to see the all the temples.

The vibe of this awesome place is very sobering. I can only imagine life here long long ago. A very spiritual place and a place of civility and culture. A must see.

Angkor Thom includes the Bayon, Baphuon, Terrace of the Leper King, Terrace of the Elephants, etc. It is a large complex of ancienf temples, definitely worthy of a visit and recommendation. Make sure to buy your Angkor Pass, dress in appropriate clothings, bring your water and extra clothes.

This place is just phenomenal...it's huge and has such a lovely variety of temples within it, it's difficult to know where to start. It's the gates that get you first! 54 gods and 54 demons fighting it out over the massive moat. The south gate especially is an astonishing site to behold. Within the 5 gates and moat are a... More

We saw this Temple after Angkor Watt, it was also amazing. The Moat around Angkor Watt was dug out by hand which is truly amazing when you see how large it is.

After explored the Ankor Wat please be remember proceed to Ankor Thom, another place which can compare in terms of historic architecture to Ankor Wat near by. This place is bit different to Ankor Wat but somehow interesting and visitor can feel the strange atmosphere while you entering to this Ankor Thom. As say " seeing is believing" please visit...
