Transport is an issue due to the complex's size and Angkor is pretty hot and humid year round - you could get around Angkor Wat and other nearby temples on a bicycle, but really you'll need more than pedal power and the heat makes it hard work.

Tuk-Tuks, motorbikes or cars with drivers are the most popular options from US-30 a day (cheaper for motorbikes).

The temples can broadly be categorised into four groups: Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, the grandest temple of all and the ancient capital next to it.

km, most dense forested area, Angkor contains the spectacular remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire dating from the 9th to the 15th century. The most popular and largest temples are Angkor Wat at Angkor Thom and the Bayon Temple with its many faces looking like something straight out of Tomb Raider.

Equally popular are temples where huge trees have grown on and in the stonework enveloping it in roots.

It is worth looking, if you have not already, at the example layout to see the guidelines each section of information is based on - or for other travel advice and site home, head for The temples of Angkor and learning something about the country's murderous past.

The jury is out on hanging-out in Phnom Penh's traveller/expat bars and restaurants.

The main temples are quite well restored, but many temples are in a bad shape of repair and much damage/vandalism has done over the years.

In all temples the level of detail in the stone work is exceptional.

Indochina, or French Indochina, was a federation of French colonies and protectorates. Once - and during the period Vietnam/Laos was opening to travelers and Cambodia was become safe to visit - the stomping group for experienced travellers and trailbazers, it is now easy to travel.

It consisted of Cochin China, Tonkin, Annam (all of which now form Vietnam), Laos and the Khmer Republic (now Cambodia). Regular flights from Bangkok can carry you to parts that would before take days to reach and there is a well established traveler route.

To get the best out of Angkor you'll really need to find some space away from the big crowds and tour groups.
