384 pages packed with (updated) information, illustrations and detailed maps, yet delivered in a portable, easy-to-use format. Focusing on the Angkor temples is the lightest, and the smallest in size, of the Angkor guide books offering more than a brief introduction to the site.
No matter what the length of your stay will be, 2 to 3 days or even a week, one thing is certain, you want to make the most of your coming trip to Angkor. Born from a passion which motivated the author to visit and study the site about 50 times over the last two decades, this guide book has been specifically designed to help you achieve this goal. The temples are abundantly illustrated and documented: 880 pictures (by far a record) will show you, before you even start your reading, all the interesting sights you should not miss. And, thanks to a number of detailed floor plans indicating their exact location within the temples, you will be able to easily spot all these sights. An exclusive feature, a great time-saving tool and the guarantee that you will not pass by Angkor's hidden treasures without noticing them. Written in a clear, concise style, to make its content accessible to non-specialists, this revised edition incorporates the latest research on the subject and up-to-date information about the temples. An essential feature as the site keeps changing (several recent restorations, modified access points and circuits) and, consequently, one does not visit Angkor today the way it was done only some years ago. Our itineraries and useful tips, notably to avoid rush hours in the most frequented temples, will ensure that your visits take place in the best possible conditions. Fitting nicely in your backpack, this guide book will prove to be an invaluable travel companion.
