“Nice to walk through this gate”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

But be aware it is very dusty and very crowded. It is not easy to get clear pictures without dozens of people in them as many are on their way to the temples.

“Even Better Than Angkor Wat!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I think I enjoyed Angkor Thom even better than Angkor Wat. It was absolutely gorgeous, although much more "ruinous" than Angkor Wat. All areas were accessible for children of all ages.

“Great City”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The entrance itself is already enough to amaze you of this grand architecture. The moat around the city is 3km in length on each side is able to tell you how big is this place.
Make sure you check out Bayon and opposite it where the Terrace of the Elephants and Ta Prohm

“Awesome temple ruins”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Angkor Thom was amazing, the faces carved into the rocks were incredible, amazing that they managed to do this so long ago! Definitely worth the visit after you have done Angkor Wat (we fit the whole of Angkor in in a day and didnt feel rushed)! Cycling is the best way to get about

“disappointment visit”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

the site were so old, not much to see except climbing up and down the stair case which I think is good for traveller who lack exercise. The Nearby Kher Angkor Restaurant was not as good as their other restaurant in Siam Reap.
