About: The Angkor Archaeological Park, located in Siem Reap, Cambodia, encompasses a number of impressive Khmer Temple sites and is perhaps the world’s largest concentration of historical structures, dating back 1000 years or more. The world-renowned site of Angkor Wat is just one of the many magnificent structures in the Angkor Archaeological Park. There are many other structures surrounding this central feature and while not as big, are no less impressive in terms of architecture.
Many Sites: The thing to keep in mind when planning your trip to Angkor is there are many sites to occupy your sightseeing hours. Some, such as the BAYON, are so impressive that you make want to make more than one visitation.
Allow Enough Time: The mistake many first-time visitors to Angkor make, is not allowing enough time to have an unrushed look at all the magnificent sites in the park. From my own experience, three to five days is sufficient for an excellent sightseeing experience at the Archaeological Park.

The magnificent Bayon Temple is a highlight attraction of the Angkor Archaeological Park
BONUS: BONUS: As a bonus, the Angkor Archaeological Park Travel Guide also includes the Remote Temple Sites Travel Guides for: Koh Ker Pyramid, Beng Mealea and the Preah Khan kompong Svay Ruins. These are Khmer historical sites which are less visited, than the ones in Siem Reap, and offer more of an adventure type experience for those wanting to get off the beaten track.
Koh Ker Pyramid is the highest in South East Asia
About: Koh Ker is South East Asia’s highest pyramid. According to Wikipedia, King Jayavarman IV initiated the construction of the Koh Ker complex around the early part of the tenth Century. The central feature of the site is the impressive seven-tiered pyramid (prang) which stands 36 meters high, at the apex, and is 62 meters square at the base. The site includes the central pyramid of Koh Ker and several smaller outlier structures such as SROT, SALAW, and BENG Temples. The distance from Siem Reap to the Koh Ker Temple Complex is approximately 120 km. Travel time is approximately 2 hours.
The magnificent ruins of Preah Khan Kompong Svay
About: The PREAH KHAN KOMPONG SVAY complex is one of the many remote temple sites in the PREAH VIHEAR PROVINCE. As with other Khmer historical sites, such as KOH KER and BENG MELEA it is enshrouded with jungle growth. According to Wikipedia it stands as the biggest single Khmer complex ever built. With all the jungle growth which surrounds and covers the site, its size can be a bit hard to envisage. But if you include the outlying Baray, and not just the inner temple complex, the claim that it’s bigger than the Angkor site can be hard to argue with. According to my tour guide the PREAH KHAN complex was built during JAYAVARMAN VII reign in the tenth century. The site comprises of the large inner complex of Prasat Preah Khan Kompong Svay, and a number of smaller outlier temples i.e., KAT KIDEI TEMPLE, PREAH STUNG TEMPLE, MEBON TEMPLE, etc.
