How many temples to explore in Angkor

Preah Dak, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia
3 Kudos
After exploring about five temples in Angkor, the temples started to look the same to my wife and I and some of the initial excitement wore off. Thus it worked out well that we explored some of the smaller ones before entering the majestic city of Angkor Thom.

The highlight of the temples in Eastern Angkor was definitely Ta Prohm with its slightly overgrown, gently decaying atmosphere. I had really high expectations for Ta Prohm and the whole experience exceeded anything I could have imagined. It looked even better and cooler than it did in Tomb Raider! The other temples were also incredible and memorable, marking a great start to the first full day of temples.
