Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
