Ta Prohm

Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The Basics

Like other standout Angkor sights, Ta Prohm is included in the Angkor Archaeological Park admission ticket, available for durations between one day and a week. Many Angkor Wat tours or Siem Reap historical tours visit here, as do masses of independent travelers. It’s possible to tour Ta Prohm by bicycle, by tuk-tuk, by scooter, or in an air-conditioned car or minivan, often in conjunction with other Angkorian sites such as Angkor Wat, Banteay Srei, Banteay Kdei, Beng Mealea, Srah Srang, and Angkor Thom. History buffs will value the rich detail a guide can provide.

Featured Private Angkor Wat Tours, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Bantey Srei And Beng Mealea
I selected a solo tour because I didn't want to be rushed when exploring the temples. The guide was very considerate of my needs and went at my pace. After two of the more popular temples I requested that we go to temples with fewer tourists, because I wanted to take pictures without other tourists in them. The guide agreed, and our last two temples were wonderful - hardly any people. After 4 sites, I wilted and headed back to the hotel. I would recommend this tour.

Private Tour: Siem Reap Full Day Tour With Angkor Wat Banteay Srei Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm
This tour gave us everything that we wanted to see in Cambodia. We couldn't ask for anything better. Our tour guide Mr. Thou was well versed and educated us in Cambodian culture. The sites we saw were incredible. It amazed us that it took us just a day and we were given enough time at each place.

Private Tour: Siem Reap Full Day Tour With Angkor Wat Banteay Srei Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm
The tour was excellent! I learned not only about the temples, but also about Cambodian history and culture. Mr Thou took the time to explain carvings in the walls, and was helpful with photos since I was by myself. The place we went for lunch was great as well

Half-Day Ta Prohm and Banteay Kdei Tour
I took this private tour my first day in Siem Reap and it was nice. Ta Prohm is way more impressive than Banteay Kdei Tour. I ended up doing another private tour of Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm with my husband the next day. So I got to see Ta Prohm twice and it was still impressive. The Tour itself was good. The guide had a great sense of humor. The food was pretty good at the restaurant and I enjoyed being taken around in a Tuk Tuk. It was my only Tuk Tuk ride the entire time we were in Siem Reap. I would say if you are taking an Angkor Tour that includes Ta Prohm than this tour could feel repetitive. However, if you are exploring Angkor Wat on your own then I would recommend this tour to learn the cool history of Ta Prohm which needs a bit of explanation.

Perfect tour for my family of 3.

Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm Temple Shared Tour
We lucked out and it was just my family of 3 in our group with our guide Tom. Tom and his driver were great! He speaks very good English, is passionate about the culture and is very knowledgeable and easy going. Having grown up with monks, he has extensive historical knowledge. He was very open to our questions, answering candidly. Between temples whenever we hopped back in the van, the driver had ice cold water bottles ready and lemongrass scented cold towels for us to cool down. Very nice touch. When we stopped for lunch, it was in an air conditioned restaurant so that was nice as well. Tom and the driver stayed at the van and gave us an hour in the restaurant. We very much appreciated that Tom took us in to Angkor Wat from the back side to avoid the crowds at the front. We casually walked through the tour, stopped for ideal picture opportunities, moved away from crowds when possible and he shortened some of his story telling to accommodate for our 6yr old's shorter attention span. If you want all the detailed background stories, Tom is the one to give it to you in full with a big smile. For me, at some points my son and husband would start to get a little antsy and so Tom would pick up on that and move on or allow a small break to sit and rest. Although we didn't have time per our short stay in Cambodia, it was nice that he recommended a unique cultural dinner restaurant nearby and offered to help book the reservation for us. A separate tour of Tonle Sap was also an option but again, we didn't have time for it. One point of clarification- before the tour when I read the voucher it stated that the voucher is not your ticket and that the ticket needs to be picked up at a location prior to the tour. That is true as you do have to purchase the ticket separately from the tour package. I wasn't sure if I had to find a ride to pick up the ticket myself but to be clear, he takes you to the place to purchase the ticket before heading to the temples and assists you at the window where you just have to pay the fee ($37 USD per adult). We had our 6yr old with us so we had to have a copy of his passport picture (he said a picture of his passport page on our phone would suffice). No one asked for it but we had a copy with us just in case. At the end of the tour, he asked us if it was okay to make a stop at a store and that no pressure to buy but that that he would get entered into a raffle for us visiting. We obliged and I did buy a scarf.

Half-Day Ta Prohm and Banteay Kdei Tour
We had been warned about the high heat, humidity by other friends and so opted for early AM half day tours with private guide so we could do at our pace and spread tours over 4 days and so glad that we did it this way. It is quite reasonable and guide and driver both solicitous to our needs. We had the same guide and driver for all the days so other tours so that was great. The only thing that we had to contest before we left home is that the tour operator tried to change us to a Tuk Tuk from what we had arranged through Viator which was for air conditioned car with water. So please check your emails from this tour operator and be sure that they do not try to change what you have ordered and pre-paid. It was finally settled through Viator and emails to operator.

Private Tour: Siem Reap Full Day Tour With Angkor Wat Banteay Srei Bayon Temple and Ta Prohm
We had an amazing time, and our tour guide Mr. Sophorn was very good. He spoke very good English, knew a lot about the country's history and about the temples we visited. The car was air conditioned and roomy and the lunch spot was good as well. If you have limited time in Siem Reap, this definitely was the best way to go see all three of the temples in one day.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Ta Prohm is a must for any visitor to Siem Reap, with particular appeal for photographers, Instagrammers, and history lovers.

  • Ongoing renovation work and structural-protection measures mean that some of the most magical Ta Prohm shots are now only possible with Photoshop.

  • Please don’t give money to child beggars: It encourages their families to keep them out of school, perpetuating a cycle of poverty. Donate to a street-kids charity registered with ConCERT Cambodia instead.

  • Cambodia is a challenging destination for travelers who use wheelchairs. Due to stairs, Ta Prohm is not currently wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There

Ta Prohm lies about 8 miles (13 kilometers) north of Siem Reap, within the Angkor Archaeological Park, about a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) walk from Banteay Kdei and a bit farther from Srah Srang. There is no public transport to or within the park, so most travelers opt to join an organized tour or arrange a private driver or driver/guide with a motorbike, tuk-tuk, or air-conditioned vehicle.

When to Get There

Arguably second only to Angkor Wat as Siem Reap’s star attraction, Ta Prohm draws independent travelers and tour groups day in, day out, and all year round. It’s open from early morning to late afternoon seven days a week throughout the year. Your best chance of beating the crowds is to arrive as soon as it opens in the morning.

Beyond the Trees What Was Ta Prohm?

Once you look beyond the tree roots and the tumbled blocks of stone, the scale of Ta Prohm gradually becomes clear. During its heyday, it was a temple and monastery dedicated to the mother of the Khmer king Jayavarman VII. The spiritual epicenter of a city of more than 10,000 people, Ta Prohm was once home to more than 600 dancers and over 2,700 officials.
