Angkor archaeological park travel pictures

Things to see in Angkor archaeological park

Angkor archaeological park is home to many temples which range from small to very large and is the premier sight to visit in Cambodia. The two biggest ones are Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. These are not shown in this gallery but, due their size, are covered in a separate collection of pictures. The temples which are shown below are Baksei Chamkrong, Banteay Kei, Chau Say Tevoda, East Mebon, Neak Poan, Pre Rup, Preah Khan, Ta Keo, Ta Prohm and Ta Som.

The most famous of these is Ta Prohm as it is the temple where the film 'Tomb raider' was shot. This is also the temple where you find the classic views of trees which have grown over a Khmer temple. It is surprising to see that there are different building styles to each temple. Sights like Pre Rup and Ta Keo are built like a wedding pie or with a pyramid structure whereas places like Preah Khan and Ta Prohm are temples with walls and grounds and do not rise very high.

Getting around these temples is best done by scooter with cart and driver. These are comfortable and relatively quick to go around. Cycling is an option, but the park is relatively far away from Siem Reap, so if you want to see a fair few temples expect to cycle a lot. There are two routes which are mostly taken across the archaeological park, the small loop and the big loop. Every driver knows this and would be perfect to see all the temples in two days. If you want a different route, just speak to your driver and they can take you everywhere. When entering Angkor archaeological park you can either buy a day-pass or a three day pass.

The temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom have their own photo galleries.
