Do you have only a limited time to see the temples of Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia? Fortunately it’s totally do-able to see the main temples of Angkor in one day.
Here we’ve got some tips for you to get the most out of your day at the temples of Angkor!

我们完全建议得到一个导游带你周围的吴哥窟。我们订Kamsan（“Best Angkor Guide” on TripAdvisor) after getting a recommendation from a family member who did the same tour with him a few months prior.
这是我们可以做出最好的决定 - 圣是惊人的。他是如此热心，知道所有的历史，和最好的事情是，他知道从哪里得到很大的照片，以及如何逃生（大部分）的人群。我们有朋友谁雇用笃笃司机的一天，但那些司机勉强讲英语，他们不是导游 - 他们只是把你从一个地方到你想要去的地方。
另一个好处是,圣空中conditione开车d car, and carried around ice cold towels and water. This was an absolute plus as the weather was seriously hot! It was a welcome relief to hop into the cool car for the drive between temples.
对于我们四个人了整整一天，包括朝阳，这是$ 135 USD。我们出了13个小时，并参观吴哥窟，巴戎寺，塔普伦，女王宫和崩密列。一个讨价还价，如果你问我！
Don’t miss the sunrise (weather dependent)
我在吴哥听到废话日出的许多故事。那么，他们可能是真的，但我们幸运地看到一个惊人的一个。这是值得一试的天气预报 - 如果是阴天或下雨，然后日出仅仅是不值得的。
But if you manage to score a good day, starting that early in the morning is great. You can see most of Angkor Wat before it gets really hot, and also before all the crowds get there (the tour buses from the Chinese hotels start rolling in around 10 am).
San took us to a spot outside the temple walls and moat to watch the sunrise. So we didn’t get the famous photo of the temple reflected in the pond, but we also didn’t have to jostle with thousands of others (plus their selfie sticks) at the spot in the photo below – there were only about a dozen other people in the spot where we were, and it was so peaceful.
Tick off the big three – Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm
如果你想看到的寺庙，你真的要访问的三个主要地点 - 吴哥窟，巴戎寺，和塔普伦。他们是最拥挤的，但它很容易理解为什么。他们是非常壮观！
Bayon (the temple with the bas-relief faces) was one of my favourites. The carvings are beautiful and those faces are haunting. They seem to follow you around wherever you walk!
Haven’t heard of these temples? They’re a bit further out from the main three and much less visited, so that’s probably why. However, we think it’s definitely worth venturing further (another bonus of having a guide with a car rather than a tuk tuk) to see them.
Banteay Srei is made out of pink sandstone so the temples have a lovely orangey colour. The carvings are so deep and intricate, it’s thought that these temples may have been carved by women due to their smaller fingers.
Banteay Srei is a small temple but it’s like a mini version of Angkor Wat – it’s stunning!
In my opinion, we saved the best until last.
Beng Melea was almost deserted – I think we saw half a dozen other people when we were there. It was a lot like Ta Prohm but bigger and more crumbly, surrounded by forest. It was amazing! There were raised walkways so you could walk above the crumbling ruins and see them from a different perspective. It was well worth the extra 45 minute drive from Banteay Srei to see Beng Melea.
