Angkor Temple Guide

Angkor Archaeological Park contains some of the most famous temples in the world, including the majestic Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayon. Most visitors are surprised to learn that there are dozens of temple complexes that can be visited within the park, and they often underestimate the amount of time needed to fully experience these historical sites. In addition, there are several stunning temples to be explored outside of the park. Our Angkor Temple Guide is a practical and essential resource for planning a trip to these ancient wonders in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It includes information on how and when to visit the best temples. It also includes information on accessing incredible temples located outside the Angkor park, like Beng Mealea, Banteay Srei, and the Roluos Group.
