I agree with a prior comment I read here. It's definitely not well worth the one hour drive by tuk tuk offered by Siem Reap. If you've additional time you are able to go out right here as well... if you're not experiencing "templed out"...More

I think you have the option to do more than one temple all together. Check on line... The ticket that I got was around U$D 62 y was for more than 3 temples.
