No matter what the length of your stay will be, 2 to 3 days or even more, 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 more than 50 times over the last two decades, this guide book has been specifically designed to help you achieve this goal. This revised edition incorporates the latest research on the subject and the most up-to-date information about the temples. An essential feature as the site keeps evolving (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. The temples are abundantly illustrated and documented: 780 pictures (by far a record in the Angkor guidebook category) 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 - for an efficient, enjoyable discovery. The chapters offering background information on the architecture, history and religions of the fascinating Khmer civilization, are presented, like the rest of the book, in a clear, concise fashion, to make these subjects accessible to non-specialists. The section dealing with the visits concentrates on the most famous and important temples but several less-frequented, off the beaten path monuments, including some in the provinces, are also described. The use of thin, quality paper, ensured that the book's weight and dimensions were kept to a minimum. Packed with information, maps and illustrations, yet fitting nicely in your backpack, it will prove to be an invaluable travel companion.
