Travel + Leisure - A Window to The Past
"As awe-inspiring as the enduring temples surrounding Siem Reap are, history tells us that they’re pale shadows of their former splendor. That’s why The Angkor Guidebook, written by Cambodia-based British expatriate Andrew Booth, is so compelling. Designed as a pocket companion for first-time visitors."
The New York Times
"Being that it is one of the most visited historical sites in the world, there is no shortage of travel guides to Cambodia’s Angkor Archaeological Park and its network of temples, spiritual centers and moat-bordered capital cities of the Khmer empire.
Add one more volume worth spending time with."

" A group of historians put their heads together to develop the guidebook’s most exciting feature: images that show what the temples would have looked like – brightly painted and standing tall – in their heyday. "
The Phnom Penh Post
" The Angkor Guidebook is more than just a book, it’s an experience and a tome that will be handled as well as read because of the intriguing virtual reconstructions it contains. "
