Cambodia - Siem Reap and Angkor

I can not say I've seen what Cambodia. I only stayed three days and that I did download e to Siem Reap to visit the Angkor temples. But I keep a wonderful souvenir. I do not know too much advice not just to visit the main temple. There are twenty temples in all and all deserve respect medetour.
They are in the middle of nature, sometimes very rapidly fora t with trees that are trying to make their way among the stones. There is something soothing, calm in this place. Tomorrow we visit the temples at Angkor Wat periphery, one is often few, few tourists. Most tour operators offering only the main temple and sometimes visit Banteay Srei. The roads to the ocher earth, nature, temples, the friendly people ... Cambodia, you to go back as least as tourist mode.
