A bit further away on the large circuit this small but beautiful temple is a must do. Try go early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the tour groups in peak season. Go straight through the temple to the opposite (east?)...More

Nice Wat, very manageable for a solo visit. Typical, but special in its way. Enjoyed looking at carvings and noting the scale difference between it and Thon and the main Angkor Wat. Charming.

This one is just amazing. Quite similar to Ta Prohm temple, here also trees have taken over the gates of the temples. I would recommend this place to everyone as it looks very beautiful.

We didn't follow the circuit as we wanted to see particular temples. This was our first one on the list in the afternoon we arrived. It was quiet, peaceful and a nice place to visit. The very end part has the "tree doorway", beautiful.

This is a less crowded and shaded temple complex. The rear entrance is a must-see, with a banyan tree and its roots draped over the rear entrance.

This small temple is serene and not too spacious, less crowded and shady trees around the temple. Walking through the west gate passing the main temple further east to the east gate is highlighted with tall towering tree embraving the gate. It's relaxed at walking...More
