Going to Bangkok, Thailand on Feb, and planning to make a side trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Will a day be enough to explore the temples?
Also, what's the best way to get there from Bangkok? Thanks a lot!
I would suggest a minimum of 2 days for Siem Reap so that you can see all of the temples.
Early morning at Angkor Watt is stunning (sunrise) and late afternoon at Bayon is gorgeous - there are a few in between. You can buy a multi day national park pass and its worth it.
Take the time to really wander through them rather than rush to get the main ones done. about 7 years ago
I did exactly what you are planning: I took a flight early morning from Bangkok to Angkor Wat. A tour guide was waiting for me at the airport. He drove me through Angkor Wat during the whole day and around 4 pm I left the part to the airport, for coming back to Bangkok. Maybe tiring, but I had only that day and it worked! Enjoy Angkor Wat (go to see the temple with elephants!!!)! about 7 years ago
