    It is exquisite balance between stairs and towers. Also equipped, I felt something magnificent. Little, out-of-the-way place.

    On the way to Angkor Thom (South Gate) lies this beautiful temple (who can remember vaguely Mayan pyramids) in the trees at the foot of Phnom Bakheng. A quick stop, climbing the steep staircase, its definitely worth it.

    This pyramid is built of bricks. He is visited by few tourists. Is still very impressive. Therefore an insider tip. You should not climb the temple. He is very steep.

    If you want to find less tourist and more quite temple, then go here. There were no one when I was there so you can fully enjoy its beauty :) be careful on its stairs , it is very steep.

    A very accessible masterpiece of Khmer architecture. No repair work and no fencing whatsoever!

    Non-touristic temple you can climb in a few minutes (but be careful and dont use the steps in the front, theyre the worst). We went here for the sunset when the popular spots seemed to full and had this place to ourselves. Absolutely fantastic experience and alot of fun since theres noone around Bring a flashlight to inspect the inside at the top and to safely climb down if it gets too dark.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
