Part of the Old Royal Palace complex and great to see. You can actually stop here and pick up a snack before going on your tour.

This temple, just north of Baphuon seemed lonely and quiet and hardly any visitors were there. There are some smaller temples in the King’s palace area and a swimming pool. It is a rather large area but the main temple itself doesn’t seem to get...More

It is a few minutes' walk from Baphoun Temple. It is a small stand-alone ancient monument. Not as spectacular as Baphoun Temple, but you will certainly see it during your visit to Angkor Thom.

Phimeanakas is part of Angkor Thom. It is lovely and well worth a visit. You are not allowed to climb up it so you can just have a look.

This three tiered pyramid was built as a centerpiece of the Royal Palace. There was a tower that is now gone and no entry to investigate the insides. Just looking at the mighty staircases still standing is impressive. The trees overgrowing parts of the temple...More

This temple is located a bit away from the Terrace of the Elephants. It is not possible to enter so just have a look from the outside. Allow 30 minutes here before you continue your tour of Angkor Thom.

Phimeanakas is one of a few temples inside the vast Angkor Thom complex, so you will likely see this as part of such a tour, but they don't allow you to climb it, and really, it's not much to behold compared to so many others.
