Temple Beauty Angkor Wat

a short twenty minute drive from Siem Reap, this is a superbly decorated temple which is best seen at the end of the day or early morning. Six towers set on a raised platform with all beautifully preserved carvings, it is amazing. Originally surrounded by walls of which only vestiges remain, Preah Ko was one of the first major temples of the Khmer empire in the 9th century. The wow factor is definite for those in search of smaller temples.
