Once upon a time, Angkor Archaeological park was an actual fully functioning, complex and well-connected city with the temples serving as flourishing part of it.
Before we continue, I’d like to break our day schedule down for you. As I’ve mentioned, Angkor Archaelogical Park has many temples and based on how many days you are in Siem Reap, it is important to know which temples you would like to visit and how much time you’re willing to allocate to each temple.
Our itinerary was simple; we had roughly 2 and half days in Siem Reap and we only wanted to plan one day to visit the temples. Thus, we limited our visit to three of the major temples of the site:
- Ta Prohm Temples
- Angkor Thom or also known as Bayon temples
- Angkor Wat
1. Ta Prohm
Located in the southwest of the East Mebon and east of Angkor Thom, the temple is awaiting you in an uncontested and mostly untouched kingdom of trees.
