A must see when in Agkor Wat. Make sure you have time, don't rush and enjoy the setting by talking your time ( at least 2 hours). Try to go between noon and 2 pm, less crowded. Can be hot: bring hats and sunscreen!

I've wanted to see this temple ever since I saw it on a travel show and it didn't fail to disappoint in real life! It was amazing seeing the smiling faces from afar and then up close once you walk up through the temple. Fantastic!

If you're there for more than one day make this your first stop on one of the days. It's one of the most popular sites and gets silly busy.

This is simply a must see - and probably also the main reason why you're in Cambodia. Personally I recommend buying minimum a 3-day pass. And then I can highly recommend renting bikes and look at the temples in your own tempo.

We went to this temple and six others. Angkor Wat is incredible, but this temple in just set in time and its magestic!

This temple is a must see if you are in Siem Reap. The architecture was stunning and our guide told us that this was his favorite temple. Just seeing the towers with the intricate design was breathtaking.

Lots of lenient smiles are gathered here. The most famous one is standing lower, compared to others. A very friendly gesture to cater for tourists' cameras.

This is less well known than the Angkor Wat temples, but worthy of spending plenty of time to piece the temple together and get a real feel for the location. Not as crowded as other locations
