Our guides recommend focussing on a small number of the most spectacular and interesting temples at Angkor Temple complex, rather than attempting to see too much in to short a period of time. The Angkor Thom complex, Bayon temple, and Ta Prohm temple, where gigantic tree roots have grown, made famous by the Hollywood film "Tomb Raider" are particular highlights. Finally, a visit to Angkor Wat itself, UNESCO World Heritage site, is a must do!
