Baphuon Temple is in the area of Angkor Thom and its pyramidal shape with various terraces makes it ideal to go up to the top and enjoy incredibles views of the sorroundings.There is also a causeway to enter the temple that makes it quite different...More

The long steps makes the climbing hard. But when your on top you will see a nice view. Try to go early or sundown

Im not sure but I think its the highest temple among them all. Get ready for a lot of climbing and walking. Parents with small children might face some problems. Yet it is really worth to see

It is about 500m from Bayon Temple and it is certainly worth a visit. You need to climb upstairs a little bit, but the best comes last. The face of the lying Buddha would mesmerise you.

The last time I was in Cambodia this was closed and work was being completed on it so I was very happy to find this open. Definitely one of the best temples to do when you are in Angkor. The 360 views from this mid-11th...More

An impressive temple with great views if you climb to the top. Not for the faint hearted though as some of the steps are very steep. Children under 12 are not allowed to go in which is worth noting. Good place to see monkeys!

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.
