    This place is truly remarkable and is most enjoyable either early in the morning at sunrise or later in the evening at sunset. The ascent to the tower offers a fantastic panoramic view that is definitely worth the effort. The temple is lovely to explore, and having a professional guide enhances the experience. I wholeheartedly recommend visiting this location without any reservations.

    We spent the afternoon here after doing Angkor Wat at sunrise in the morning. It was not nearly as crowded and was nice to have less people milling about. Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommend doing this as well.

    Fascinating old trees with roots goingvthrough the buildings. Touristy. Need to wait to take pics. Wait is not too long though.

    This area comprises several temples. The South Gate is very imposing. Apparently there were four main gates into the city. The South Gate was for everyone.

    A bucket list must! You have made it to Cambodia, surely this is why you came? Note: the ticket office is separate to the park, consider buying your ticket the evening before if you want to see the sun rise at Angkor Wat. Be sure to get there as early as you can, its worth it. You will need transportation around the park as it is VAST. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and be sure to have sunscreen and plenty of water. Do a little research beforehand to get the most of the trip.
    Yes the place gets busy and the locals want to sell you their wares but for most people this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself into something totally unique.

    This is a magnificent temple. If you have mobility issues, you can probably still walk around the perimeter and appreciate it!

    This was our last temple in Cambodia, and it was great! The temple isn't big, it doesn't take a lot of time. It's 3 levels, so you have two sets of stairs to climb. They're not bad at all. It's a beautiful temple, and the five sanctuary towers on the top have gorgeous carved detail. And lions. Big lion statues. The view from the top was great. This is another one that is pretty quiet, not many people. It was great having the place mostly to ourselves.

    This terrace was used by the king and important people to watch elephant fights in the field below. The interesting part is when you walk down the steps and see the carvings along the base.

    Banteay Kdei is a stunning small temple located near Srah Srang and Ta Prohm in Siem Reap. It is often overlooked by tourists, making it a peaceful and beautiful spot to visit. The temple is a must-see for its photogenic beauty and unique architecture. Exploring Banteay Kdei should only take about an hour, but the experience is truly unforgettable. Cambodia's temples are truly one of a kind and Banteay Kdei is no exception. Don't miss out on the opportunity to explore this hidden gem.

    This is the largest and most interesting of the 'Roluos' group of temples (which isn' saying too much since the other temples are tiny). I would only venture here is you are staying in Angkor for 3 days or more. This temple is interesting as it is multi tiered and you can explore all tiers well, with good views from the top tier and interesting areas to explore at the bottom. Can do it in about 30-45 mins.

    This was fun to walk across the boardwalk on a lake to get to the trail that leads you to this temple. The temple is an artificial island with a small Hindu temple on it. At the base of the island are two snakes that surround the island. We liked that the scenery was unique from the other temples

    This terrace which our guide told us represented hell had intricately carved figures around its base. We could not go up but I think the interesting part was the base.

    This is a pretty quiet temple, with giant elephant statues on the corners. It's an easy walk from the parking area, and it doesn't involve as much climbing as some of the other temples (a very nice thing on a hot, humid day). This one wasn't originally on our list of things to do, but we were passing and it looked fun. (It's included with the Angkor ticket.) I'm glad we stopped---it was worth a short visit.
