“Really enjoyed it”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The view over the water towards the temple is breathtaking. I enjoyed this temple a lot despite all the steep climbing to get to the very top...it's a bit scary to climb down as the steps are very narrow and steep but worth the effort as you get rewarded with lovely views.

“Beautiful Temple”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is one of the temple I liked the most.
Firstly because it is beautiful but also because there weren't as much tourist there as everywhere else - because you have to wear over-knee and over-shoulder clothes already to get in to the temple. Take some time and rest in the shadow of Baphuon Temple or read the reliefs around it. It is beautiful!

“It will tire and scare you”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The only thing I remember about this temple is that it's a grueling climb and a frightening descent.

“Exercise”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The stairs however are very steep and hard to get up and even more difficult to get down, but once you are there you can see Angkor Thom. Go and just do it !!!

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

After having seen many other temples in Angkor, Baphuon, although well restored by the French, hasn't much extras to offer. You can walk around the temple and look for the lying Bouddha at the west side.
