A much bigger complex than Angkor Wat — the main site is the temple with the Buddha faces. When you climb to the top, it’s an amazing site but also will be very crowded with tourists and selfie sticks — prepared to be jostled! We...More

Angkor Thom was my favorite temple in the whole complex, the restauration of the space allows you to get a clear picture of the scale of these monuments and still you can find little nooks and hidden spaces that are incredible. Make sure you have...More

Angkor Thom is a great place to visit with lots of sights inside. It's better take a tour guide as they can explain more about the history then just walking around and look ...just amazing!

Take the elephant ride around this temple. The kids will love it. And it’s small enough for kids or older family members.
