If you go to Siem Reap, you have to go to Angkor Thom, "The Great City". If I had to choose between this and Angkor Wat, I would choose Angkor Thom every time. Its walls enclose a vast area (around seven square miles) and the buildings inside are of such stunning variety. The South Gate to the old city (hundreds... More

Angkor Thom actually covered many temples such as Bayon, Phimean Ahkas, terrace of elephant, terrace of leper King and so on. But the good one I like is Bayon Temple.

I think Angkor Wat is very good but I still prefer Angkor Thom (my favorite though is Ta Phrom). Angor Thom did not feel so crowded and tense as other temples. I cannot put my finger on it but it just seemed more relaxed even if there were just as many tourists as elsewhere. Possibly it was because every time... More

There are no word to describe how beautiful this temple is. The craftsmanship that has gone into the making of this is awe inspiring especially considering how old it is. This was definitely our favorite temple and one which we will re-visit on our return to this fabulous country

I had expected to be impressed with the ancient Tempel complexes but not that it would blow me away. Even though it was quite busy and hot, this was one of the absolute highlights. A one day ticket costs 10$, 3 days 30$ and 7 days 40$ per person. I believe they just raised the prices. That sounds pretty steep... More

Angkor Thom (the Bayon Temple) is unique with the faces of Gods & Goddesses carved on the temples, Impressive is the Elephant Terrace. Had it not been so hot (September) we'd have spent more time in exploring Angkor Thom.

Really want to explore this site for hours upon hours through the day instead of one hot afternoon. I can marvel at the incredible craftsmanship through the spectrum of lights changing in the day to photograph.

Make sure this is one of the wats you see! The park is filled with such beauty - I recommend spending 3 days looking at the various temples/wats. I recommend getting a tour guide for at least one of the days so you get more out of the experience.

Angor thom is group of temples starting with Bayon and many other. All are must visit. Bayon is going to take more time compared to all. Bayon and Bapoon you can go inside and they are big. Rest will take relatively less time. Allocated minimum 1 complete day.
