I absolutely loved this temple, it was my favourite of them all! It's not very big which IMO was really nice because less people come to see it. We went an hour before it closed (7am-5:30pm) and had it all to ourselves! There's a beautiful...More

lovely little temple to visit. It is beautiful. However, If you dont have much time, maybe miss this one. Preah Kahn and/or Ta Phrom are in the same vein. But it isnt far away from Preah Khan, so you can always have a quick visit

Relatively crowd free it you get there in the morning, this provides a great photo opportunity of a tree growing around the temple gate. Temple is shaded which makes for a nice experience also.

It isn't very big but still impressive. While we have the driver with us, we won't miss it in the giant circle. Stopping by for about 30 minutes would be enough.

As part of the big circuit route, Ta Som is a hidden gem. Just located beside Neak Pean, we stopped for around 30 minutes before headed south to East Mebon. We got there around 2PM and there were only a handful of people walking around....More
