Bakong

4.4/5
198 Reviews
Temple
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1-2 hours
Address: Prasat Bakong, Roluos, Siem Reap, Cambodia

What people are saying:

This impressive citadel is the jewel of the Roluos Group. Driving up to Wat Bakong you get a glimpse of the vista across the moat of the ancient city. You can enter from either side, west or east, although it’s probably nicest to get dropped off and picked up from the same one, so that you can explore right around the citadel.

    Off the beaten path so to speak

    Visited in the afternoon and it wasn't too crowded. Be sure to enter at one entrance and walk through it...coming out the other side.

    Just piling on

    As the other reviewers have said this is one is worth a visit. It's a quick in and out but the temple grounds are in decent shape and it's really quite attractive.
