This is one of my favorite short stops for great photos of trees growing out of rocks which were part of the ancient bridge. It is rare to have anyone else stop.

Spean Thma is between Ta Keo and Thommanon and just on the side of the road. It is not a huge temple like the others, you see only a mount of stones on which a tree grows . The view is lovely and it is really worth stopping here for 5 minutes to shoot a wonderful picture.

These bridge remains are post Angkor but interesting in that they used a heavy style of construction, which so constricted the river that it simply changed course to go around the bridge! There are a few nice arches left, with good photo-opportunity trees growing from the top. Worth pausing at if passing between Victory Gate and Thommanon or Ta Keo.

I imagine the duration of visit would be typically short (mine was), but it was truly enjoyable. Located just next to the road. it's easily spotted but since there's no signpost indicating it (at least I didn't see any) it's possible to miss if you're not paying attention. While you can just take pics from the roadside, to fully appreciate it you should walk under the bridge to the other side (away from the road). There is a stream on that side, presumably the same one that used to flow under Spean Thma but has since realigned. Some people were even splashing happily away when I was there. Facing the road (with the bridge between you and the road) the view is awesome, with trees growing on top of the bridge and seemingly weighing the bridge down. For a short stop, this one would be a waste to miss.

The name means 'Stone Bridge'.Leaving Angkor Thom through the Victory Gate towards Ta Keo, you will pass the remnants of an ancient bridge over the Siem Reap River. It is located just a couple of feet from the road.

You pass the remains of this bridge on any tour between Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm. Your Tuk Tuk driver will point it out. What you see is the scant remains of a 900 year old bridge which once spanned the Siem Reap River. The river has since changed its course slightly. Spean Thma literally means Bridge of Stone. It is worth briefly stopping for a photo.
