Gorgeous temple, lovely jungle setting and best of all...no hordes of people shoving you around!! Such a pleasure to come here (& a lot of the rest of the big circuit, Neak Pean's water walk was cool, too). Honestly, if I could go back in time, I would skip the insanity of Angkor Wat/Thom/Small circuit and just enjoy these quieter more accessible large circuit temples.

Preah Khan is a real jungle temple and it is huge. A lot of corridors crossing each others, one can easily lost, trees growing everywhere, simply fantastic. Do not miss the splendid terrace at the end of the temple, and give a look at the surrounding jungles.

Went after watching the sun rise over Angor Wat, and that was perfect because the crowds were few and far between and it wasn't too hot out. Would recommend going with a tour guide, or asking the security guards questions about the temple (although you will have to tip them after they help you out, but it's worth it). This temple has amazing stories about the architecture and history. It is a real gem of Siem Reap.

A wonderful maze of a temple built at the end of the 12th century AD.

Don't miss the following: the Hall of Dancers in the centre of the temple where you can see beautifully carved lintels featuring dancing apsaras (celestial beings), serene devatas (female temple guardians) throughout the temple, and the charming little rest hall at the east entrance, which was built for pilgrims to this former monastery temple.

Less crowded than some of the better-known temples although you may still be unlucky enough to encounter some tour groups. As the temple is a large sprawling one, it is possible to get away from the noise and selfie sticks!

Very close to Srah Srang, this is small but interesting temple. Has a lot of overlaps with the way Ta Phrom (Tomb Raider Temple) in terms of ruins and old trees et al. Do not miss the small and detailed carvings here. This one won't take much of your time.
