This is also an Angkor experience, though the buildings is not as nice or interesting as others. This one will need shorter time to visit but still nice to visit.

One of the Temples inside the Angkor Thom complex, interesting with a complex historical background. One of the temples to visit.

While this temple isn't the biggest or best, I would recommend adding it to a day temple tour. A guide is a must to get the mist out of any temple visit so ask for a recommendation at your hotel.

Some of the trees that intertwined with the ruins, strangling the gates are ancient figs. I'm not suggesting that these are the trees you observed but it might not be a bad place to start.
