World HeritageThe Angkor area is probably what you come to Cambodia for and it won't disappoint you. A whole day is recommended in order to cover all the temples in details. It is also highly recommended to watch either the sun rise (from Angkor Wat) or sun set (from Phnom Ban Kheng) or both. If you want to avoid other tourists, then sun rise is probably more of your liking. You need to obtain a pass in order to visit the areas.
US$20 per person: One-day pass
US$40 per person: Three-day pass
US$60 per person: Seven-day pass

Attractions (for details click the links on the left hand menu):
Angkor Wat: This is the main attraction of the visit
Baphuon: Under restoration, home to a large reclining budda
Bayon: If you were to see only two temples, it should be Angkor Wat and this one
Phimeanakas: The king's temple in the Angkor Thom
Phnom Ban Kheng: A temple constructed on Ban Kheng Hill, a good spot for viewing sun set
Southern Gate: An impressive entrance to the Angkor Thom (Angkor city)
Terrace of Elephant: Wall spanning in front of Phimeanakas, adorned with elephants and garudas
