We had the earliest breakfast our hotel would serve, and left immediately afterwards, which ended up working really well.
When we arrived there were tourists already there, but not many.
The temple is very small, but has very beautiful carvings, with a lot of it roped off to preserve them. We were able to explore it pretty much unencumbered, but as we were leaving there were many busloads more people arriving. The small temple was absolutely packed. So glad we were able to view it without the masses.
There are some walks signposted after the temple, but they weren't amazing. The "lookout points" were all of empty swampland, which I guess was scenic, but not terribly so. One sign pointed to the "Botanical Gardens", but we couldn't find it at all, and when we told someone what we were looking for (after he queried where we were going) he seemed confused, and said there wasn't anything like that.
But the temple itself was excellent, despite the long ride out there (I actually really enjoy the long tuk-tuk rides. It was a great way to see a lot of the area, and the locals' day-to-day lives).
