Just one of Angkor's amazing temples, and a must-see if you're in Siem Reap. Early morning and later in he afternoon are good times to beat the heat and the crowds. Engaging a local tour guidewith exceptional knowledge will add to the overall experience.

I would definitely put this on the list of temples to visit in the area. The carvings and faces are fascinating. Great photo opportunities here. This is one of the larger ones and a really good one to visit.

The main attraction here are the carved faces at the top, but don't overlook all the carved murals at the bottom. There are scenes of daily life from the time, and they are really interesting to look through!

Like other angkor temples, this has a mixture of myths related to Hinduism and Buddhism. Very beautiful. A must-visit place.

No you don't need another ticket - you should be good for 3 visits - besides you can visit on the same day - morning or it gets too hot - do ankor wat first
