The Preah Khan big site has fewer tourists than some other temple sites, for some reason, and your guide may chose to include it in your mix of visits.

Preah Khan is every bit as impressive as the more famous Ta Prohm but with a fraction of the crowd. There were maybe about 20 people here but spread out across the complex, you almost felt like you had it to yourself. I loved it...More

This's a somewhat less crowded temple. Additionally, it has several of the strangler trees which are there at Ta Prohm. We noticed it late in the evening when the glow was flawless, and we have much less crowds only at that moment. In reality, there...More

Definitely worth a visit as it is not very popular with lot tourists. I would rate this place above Angkor Watt. I love the sighting of those monstrous trees with roots draping over the stone walls.

Preah Khan offers more photo opportunities than any temple in Siem Reap in my opinion. I just couldn't get enough of this place. It's stunning architecture, trees, and grounds are sure to fill anyone and everyone with awe.

A stunning ancient stone complex that resembles a maze surrounded by thick jungle. Intricate carvings are everywhere, intriguing viewers from every possible angle. A feast to the eyes. Highly recommended.
