A bit far from Angkor temple and was part of my second day tour. This is also quite big in size and have huge walkways to enter the main complex. It also has library ruins which resembles a kind roman style architecture. Many parts will feel like Ta Prohm as trees have engulfed many structures.

A beautiful temple similar with Tah Phrom.

This is another favorite. You can roam around. You will meet their friendly police/staff and even offer to take your pictures.

As remarkable as each and every temple in the Angkor Wat area was, our favorite was this one, Preah Khan. Preah Khan is just northwest of the Angkor Thom city. It is not on every tourist's itinerary which makes it more enjoyable. You will not have to fight the crowds that the more popular Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm receive. The reliefs here are still in pretty good shape. You will get all of the great visual effects of trees growing from the temple walls etc.... but the whole place is in better shape than Ta Prohm (Tomb Raider). We spent about an hour here. It's best and easier for you if you enter either from the west or east and have the tuk-tuk or car pick you up on the opposite side.

The very first stones we have visited. Beautiful, large, bridges across the dirty waters. Hidden Queen and her sister in the deep. Policeman could show You. Part of the "big circle" , tuk tuk possible for 1 day fo 13-15 dollars. Note: entrance ticket to the whole complex should be paid in cash. 37 for 1 day, 62 for 2-3 days. Children till 12 is free of charge and instead of ticket need to have the passport.

This temple is being reclaimed by the jungle and is fascinating and beautiful at the same time. It is similar in its reclamation to the temple where Tomb Raider was filmed, but with far less visitors. Highly recommended and better with a guide.
