Over 5 trips to Angkor, and countless hours spent in the temples, Preah Khan remains my undisputed favorite. It is the last of the large temples where it is still possible to find quiet spots completely away from the crowds, who generally stick to its cruciform center.

Try to go in the middel of the day when there are less tourists. A beutiful temple, not to be missed. Angkor Wat dersves at least three full days so don't cut your time in Siem Reap too short.

Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm get the spotlight, but Preah Khan is not to be missed. Even if you spend just a day (which obviously isn't enough) seeing the Angkor temples, try to fit in this temple. It was built in the 12th Century for King Jayavarman VII to honor his father. One particularly interesting temple -- two story... More

This is probably my most favourite of all places . Somewhere where I can just switch off and imagine what Cambodia was like all those years ago . I went with Eric dvries ( photographer based in Siem Reap who I recommend you have a trip with ) and 2 times on my own . To explore and get shooting... More

This is where the King buried his father's ashes. The doors were specially designed to make you bow while you get entering. There used to be many precious stones in the central tower. Now you can only admire the size of the stones by the holes.

We do not only find the Umbrella Trees attaching to the temple structures in Ta Prohm Temple, but also in Phreah Khan temple. The umbrella trees grow up for long years attaching to the temple structures, while the temple structures are still well-established. They can peacefullly live in-coexistence. The temple is located in the Grand Circuit Route of Angkor Park.... More

Book in advance your own tuk tuk driver by the day to fully enjoy the experience. You will then be collected and returned back to your hotel

We moved to Preah Khan from the victory gate of Angkor Thom. Took some time to reach here. Preah Khan ( for sure nothing to do with Mughals) is far away from the rest of the attractions in the Angkor complex, particularly from Angkor Wat.But it's worth visiting this . This is yet another temple complex and there is a... More

If you visit Angkor Wat first thing in the morning, go here next and avoid the crowd. It's in great shape, though there are some trees that have given it that "Tomb Raider" look.
