To avoid the crowds we did this site last on the grand circuit (do it the opposite direction!). It was still fairly busy but not too busy. The site is very impressive and huge - leave around an hour or more to look around. Some...More

One of my preferite Temple in Angkor. So ruined, so abandonet, so survived at the jungle's opera that try to overwhelm what man did. It seems to be in a movie.

This smaller temple lays close to a man made lake ( Baray) to enter as in other temples you will cross a bridge with sculptures of the serpent naga in the sides.These structures also remain with little repair, unrestored and with some maintenance to keep...More

Preah Khan is one of the less visited temples, and it shows. While a number of paths through the building and around the building have been cleared, you can see much of the stone work and chunks of masonry piled up around the site. It’s...More

Preah Khan means the sacred sword, that the King, Jayavaraman VII, (may or even might not have) left to the descendants of his. There's a tiny structure to just one side which might have housed thepis sacred sword. Some gorgeous carvings. Also some huge trees,...More

The Preah Khan big site has fewer tourists than some other temple sites, for some reason, and your guide may chose to include it in your mix of visits.

Preah Khan is every bit as impressive as the more famous Ta Prohm but with a fraction of the crowd. There were maybe about 20 people here but spread out across the complex, you almost felt like you had it to yourself. I loved it...More

This's a somewhat less crowded temple. Additionally, it has several of the strangler trees which are there at Ta Prohm. We noticed it late in the evening when the glow was flawless, and we have much less crowds only at that moment. In reality, there...More

Definitely worth a visit as it is not very popular with lot tourists. I would rate this place above Angkor Watt. I love the sighting of those monstrous trees with roots draping over the stone walls.
