There are few places on this planet that take my breath away like preah kahn. The trees that have overtaken the temples are the most magnificent on earth. Like bizarre alien appendages, the trees are like nothing you’ve seen before or will Ever see again....More

This particular temple has it all: a magnificent bridge in the entry, successfully preserved structures though similarly jungle claiming the spot of its returned, long hallways, a great deal of carvings and statues, but surprisingly couple of tourists. Maybe it was the a bit of...More

Loved this place, my fave out of all the temples I visited in Angkor. Like something from an Indiana Jones movie or a Hollywood film set but this is the real thing. The trees intertwine with the buildings in a mesmerising way. Unmissable.

Another temple built for King Jayavarman VII to honour his father. He also probably lived in it whilst Angkor Thom was being built. You’ll see pillars with the front sections removed. This is because it was originally Hindu and all Hindu images were removed when...More

This temple stands out for it's sheer size. Feels like walking in a labyrinth. Many tidbits that you can relate to history and hindu mythology.

If you are pressed for time or templed out to see all of the grand circuit, this is one temple you must see. It predates Angkor Wat and is much smaller, so if you can visit first, you will appreciate it better. The bas reliefs,...More

One of amazing temples can’t be missed on your itinerary while you’re visiting Siem Reap. I went with families on weekend. It takes a least couple of hours to see the temple complex and hidden statues. It is one of beautiful temple would recommend to...More

There are a few interesting parts of the temple, like the elephant trunk tree that make it a temple worthwhile visiting, but honestly there are others that were just a little bit more exciting for us. Why we still give it a 5/5 is because...More

This temple is very large, but beautiful and interesting. It reminds me of the Jungle Book. It is not as crowded as many of the more visited temples. There are some cool overgrowing tree roots very similar to what you see in Ta Prohm, with...More
