    We visited this temple on a day combined with Beng Mealea. We really appreciated how off the beaten track they felt compared to the Main and Grand Circuits of Angkor.

    The carvings on this temple are stunningly intricate, and the quiet nature of this temple meant you could really take the time to appreciate them without feeling in the way of others.

    This day was by far our favourite day of exploring temples in Cambodia.

    We have a video showcasing the site which is on our YouTube Channel, link in our bio 😊

    We had a great day visiting the main temples at Angkor Wat with our guide Rey and our driver Nak who were both excellent. The day was well paced and Rey was full of interesting information. We would recommend highly

    The Angkor archaeological complex is a World Heritage Site and one of the wonders of the modern world.
    Absolutely fabulous
    Huge area with a varied set of temples spread out.
    A journey to the ancient Khmer world.
    Some of the temples are in ruins, others are undergoing rehabilitation and others are better preserved.
    It's a pity that thousands of tourists are unaware of the complex's cultural richness and behave inappropriately.

    The temple was less complex than the others. Since most of its buildings has collapsed. But the hallway design was very unique & beautiful.

    Unveiling the majestic Baphuon Temple in Cambodia, visitors are transported back in time to the 11th century, where this architectural masterpiece dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva stands as a testament to the Khmer Empire's rich history and cultural heritage. The temple, built during the reign of King Udayadityavarman II, served as the state temple of Angkor Thom, showcasing intricate carvings and a towering pyramid shape that reflect the Khmer architectural style of the period. Thanks to extensive restoration efforts funded by the French government, the Baphuon Temple has been meticulously preserved, allowing travelers to witness its grandeur and historical significance firsthand. As one of the largest temples in Angkor Thom, the Baphuon offers a unique opportunity to explore Cambodia's past and architectural prowess, making it a must-see destination for those interested in ancient wonders.

He is very helpful and hamble guy. We spent 4 days with Daniel. We are so enjoyed in Cambodia. We will take him again when we back to Cambodia.

    We had the best experience of Siem Reap with Mr Wang. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome in Siem Reap and took us to visit places that we wouldn't have found by ourselves.
    We would definitely recommend Mr. Wang to anyone who visits Siem Reap.

    This was our last temple in Cambodia, and it was great! The temple isn't big, it doesn't take a lot of time. It's 3 levels, so you have two sets of stairs to climb. They're not bad at all. It's a beautiful temple, and the five sanctuary towers on the top have gorgeous carved detail. And lions. Big lion statues. The view from the top was great. This is another one that is pretty quiet, not many people. It was great having the place mostly to ourselves.

    The Banteay kdei temple is located in the Angkor archaeological complex but it is not one of the most famous. That is why it is little visited. Good thing.
    It is a beautiful temple, although in poor condition. Consisting of multiple rooms, it is very long and not very wide.
    As it is not very visited, it can be enjoyed calmly.
    If you have time it's worth visiting

    This terrace was used by the king and important people to watch elephant fights in the field below. The interesting part is when you walk down the steps and see the carvings along the base.

    The Bakong Temple in Cambodia's Siem Reap province is a remarkable testament to the country's rich cultural heritage. Dating back to the 9th century, this ancient marvel showcases the captivating Khmer architecture and serves as a significant religious site. The temple's historical significance lies in its role as the prototype for subsequent temple mountains, setting the stage for iconic structures like Angkor Wat. The Bakong Temple's architectural brilliance is evident in its unique design, intricate details, and beautifully carved lintels depicting Hindu mythology and ancient Khmer life. Beyond its architectural splendor, the temple holds immense cultural significance, reminding visitors of Cambodia's glorious past and the enduring influence of Hinduism in the region. It continues to be an active place of worship and comes alive during the annual festival of Pchum Ben. Located just 17 kilometers east of Siem Reap, the Bakong Temple is easily accessible and often included in guided tours of the Angkor Archaeological Park. As you explore the temple, you will be transported back in time, marveling at the craftsmanship and ingenuity of the Khmer people. Don't forget to capture the breathtaking views from the top of the temple, offering a panoramic vista of the surrounding countryside. Efforts are underway to preserve and maintain the temple, ensuring its longevity for future generations. The Bakong Temple is a must-visit for those seeking to immerse themselves in Cambodia's rich history and spirituality.
