Another not to miss!

If you only have time for 3 temples make sure this is on your list. Wonderful friezes along the stone work. Photos in the afternoon work best.

This was the least favourite of the temples I went to but it was still amazing. All the faces are unbelievable - but whilst walking around I felt that one face was the same as another - BUT definitely worth seeing and listening to the guides who give great history of the temple

We went past the entrance to Angkor Thom in the morning- there was a traffic jam to get in! We went late afternoon and it was quiet, peaceful and so beautiful.

By the time we hit Angkor Thom we had been up since 4:30 and it was hot and I was tired and cranky - you get the drift. In some ways it was just another temple overlooking jungle but then you think ab out the engineering and the labour and the tools they had and it is a magnificient structure.... More

Go early while the crowds are at Angkor Wat. It is surreal seeing the Bayon Temple for real and not in the moves. Really beautiful temple.

Lots of faces built into the rocks. Could only see around the outside, not stable enough for climbing over the rocks.The demons pulling the serpents on the bridge guarding the main entrance was great.

This temple, is personally, after the huge and magnificent Ankor Wat, the most impressive. Specially the faces carved in this temple

We went here as part of our Angkor day trip, in fact it was the first place we went to, and we were not disappointed by its serene beauty. Heavily overcrowded but everyone wants to see the place.

Love the big Buddha faces! So many stunning reliefs with such story detail (more simple, less ornate carvings, but such amazing detail) of everyday life, the waging of war, etc. Not sure how you find that out if you don't have a guide. Our guide in Cambodia was amazing - finding just the right places to stand for the best... More
