    Angkor Wat is but one temple in a huge complex
    I had an entire day in the Angkor Area and although it was over 40 degrees, crowds got thinner with each additional temple. The smaller temples and the city were more remarkable and still had the impressive architecture made of sandstone like Angkor Wat. Save your energy for this part of the complex!

    Just huge
    Just huge with so many temples and the gates. Had a guide to help us make sense of all what we were seeing. The tuk tuk drivers navigate around very easily as it would be so easy to get lost here. Not a lot of shade. So much to see and really be in awe of how these were built and the detail. wow

    Best experience!
    This three levels temple, but only the first level had access, other levels are repairing, there are a lot of climbing up and down and there were stones lying all over the place so it was needless exhausted to navigate. Bayon temple is also a splendid temple in itself. It has 54 towers and 216 faces. I got the best experience of the temple because I had the experience tour guide with.

    A unique and spiritual experience of grandeur
    Its grandeur and spiritual atmosphere make it a sublime experience, and it is truly unique. The city is surrounded by an 8-meter-high wall, and the entrance is marked by a beautiful stone gate. Once inside, visitors can explore the ancient temples, palaces, and other monuments. The Bayon Temple stands out with its 54 towers, each decorated with four faces of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. Other attractions include the Terrace of the Elephants, the Royal Palace, and the Victory Gate. The atmosphere of the city is spiritual and serene, and visitors can easily sense the grandeur of the area.

    Bayon temple, at the centre of Angkor Thom is the highlight.
    Angkor Thom isn't one temple but rather a large site housing smaller temples, including the magnificent Bayon temple at its centre. It is included in the 'small circuit' 1 day tours of the Angkor Park. Truly incredible how large the Angkor Thom site feels, you can imagine it must have been quite a magnificent city.

This area comprises several temples. The South Gate is very imposing. Apparently there were four main gates into the city. The South Gate was for everyone.

This is a no-brainer MUST SEE. I've been to Seam Reap several times and Angkor Thom is perhaps my favorite temple in this area. It contains Bayon Temple, Baphoun Temple, Terrace of Elephants, and Terrace of Leper King. I recommend going in the afternoon to avoid the morning crush of tourists.
