This Hindu temple is much more than one hour from Angkor by Tuk Tuk (maybe fifty percent of that time by automobile). Though it's well worth the drive to find out the rose colored sandstones, excellent but still identifiable structures and carvings that really are...More

Come here to see the beautiful carvings. It is far enough from the other temples that the mass crowds dont come here (yet), but you should not exactly expect to be alone either. Well worth the trip, especially if you combine it with a trip...More
