You can park directly outside and you need to buy your guidebook before you go in as there is no shop inside. Plenty of toilets around the site. You can hire an electric buggy with driver to do most of the site, if you don't...More

We visited this site the day after visiting the Valley of the Temples, and for a number of reasons we preferred this site. The site is also quite big but is much quieter. Parking was much easier. The site is in a lovely spot above...More

We were truly awed by this magnificent historic site which was almost deserted when we visited on a sweltering July afternoon. (In the searing heat, it would've been a good idea to pay for the small electric buggies that ferry people around the large site.)...More

Truly amazing site. The two temples that have been reconstructed have been done some sympathetically and give just a glimpse and impression of their magnificence. Even just walking among the massive ruined columns gives a sense of awe. It is worth it to book the...More

The site is quite large, but easily accessible. The two sections are connected by a road that you can drive or take a shuttle. The one temple that has been re-erected allows the visitor to walk on the inside, which is not allowed at most...More

We used the Michelin Green Guide, which we took with us, and found it along with the excellent explanatory signage to be fine. We hiked and did not use a guide.
