Ten tips on visiting Angkor’s temples

One of the things our guests really appreciate is Savuth’s skills in itinerary planning. We get so many comments about how Savuth knows the best times to see which temples and in which order to maximize one’s time and pleasure in avoiding the crowds to the extent possible. Unfortunately, not everyone uses Savuth as their tuk tuk driver. Here’s a great recent article with ten tips on how to get the most out of visiting the temples. An excerpt:

1  High season runs from November to March, when the weather is usually fair. Late October and November, the country is still lush after the rains and there are fewer tourists.

2  Wear comfortable shoes with good soles; the paving at the temples is uneven and slippery when wet. Take an umbrella against the rain/sun. A torch is useful for windowless rooms.

3  Have a basic understanding of Hinduism and Theravada Buddhism. Most guidebooks have a section on this subject. A good map is available at local bookshops in Siem Reap (they do not have one at the ticket office).

You can read the full article here at The Telegraph.
