Bakong - tandem this up with Preah Ko as must visits when exploring the sites of Siem Reap. Early morning is fantastic and it is part of the temple pass programme. Allow 25+ minutes from downtown Via tuk tuk.

I visited this temple as a last of the day, returning from Beng Mealea, and truly glad I did so. Firstly, as you approach Bakong, to your right is Preah Ko, very much worth a stop by also, especially for the still intact stucco which...More

We came early to visit this temple, no crowd. In general the Roluos group temple is less crowded. It's worth a visit to see the history.

I went crazy over this temple, which reminded me of Machu Picchu with its layered terraces. The elephant statues were incredible, completely different from all other temples in Angkor, don't miss it!

Compared to the other temples of Siem Reap, I feel Bakong is notably inferior. However, it is fascinating to see how Angkorian temple design changed over time.

The Rolous group is located a good 1-1.5 hours away from the Angkor Wat complex. This is one of the three temples of the Rolous group and the most impressive. These temples are relatively crowd free compared to the main complex in Siem Reap and...More

We visited in the morning and it was quiet. A great small site to walk about. The stairs up can be quite steep in sections: wear non slip shoes, take your time.
