Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2018

I enjoyed this temple and there were less crowds than Angkor Wat. Just as impressive though but in a less restored state which was part of the charm.

This is my favorite place. I would rather recommend anybody to visit here. But people with disability might not be able to visit here because of no special slopes nor elevators.

A lot quieter than Angkor Wat, it is actually possible to get parts of the Temple to yourself for a few brief moments of serene solitude and calm. You are freely aloud to explore the Temple - ensure you have a visitor pass. One of the most incredible experiences of my life.

Despite having seen a hundred photographs of the place nothing prepares one for the onslaught of all the beautiful smiling Buddhas which emanate happiness and tranquility.
