Loved this place - and so did a lot of other people. It was very busy and sometimes hard to get a photo without someone in it. Helps to know a few Chinese words like "My Turn" or... read more

Loved this place - and so did a lot of other people. It was very busy and sometimes hard to get a photo without someone in it. Helps to know a few Chinese words like "My Turn" or "Wait a second". We went with a guide & the guide knew all the good photo spots, including where to stand to... More

It spins the mind when you consider the scale of this place and its point in history. I thought its advance publicity didn't do it justice.

Now we all know that Angkor Wat is on all the post cards, but most people don't know about Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom, which translate to "Great City", was the last and most enduring capital of the Khmer empire. This area of temples were my favorite due to the space and size of the ruins. You can literally get lost... More

This is part of the normal tourist route through the temples. There is a lot to see at Angkor Thom. A private guide was really helpful to explain everything.

If your reason for visiting Cambodia is to experience the history and culture do not miss Angkor Thom.

This is vast. You enter by the South Gate over a causeway lined by an ancient bridge depicting gods and demons in a tug of war. This capital city of the 12th century had 700000 to a million inhabitants! Puts London to shame. All around the area away from the tourists and it is amazingly peaceful.

Not as big an Angkor Wat but interestingly different. The amount of stone carvings still visible around the temple wall and also the surrounding grounds were interesting.

Fue el primer templo que visitamos, en pleno mediodía con un sol de justicia pero con menos turistas visitando el templo. En general los templos de Angkor tienen 3 niveles, el tercero exige un esfuerzo físico por lo empinado de las escaleras, y dos edificaciones, una a cada lado en donde habían las bibliotecas. Pero el saber se halla sobre... More

Less crowded than Angkor Wat, very enjoyable visit. The ruins have faces of various gods and goddesses, looks very intriguing. Recommend an hour or two to visit. Also quite shaded which was a relief as it was very hot.

Angkor Thom is quite big with many temples including the Bayon Temple, Baphuon Temple, Terrace of he Elephants etc. To cover the entire area would need at least half a day so we only did 2 in 3 hours. Opposite the Bayon Temple is where you can take the elephant rides. Do note that they are only there in the... More
