Walking around the enormous Bayon Temple and its wonderfully labyrinthine grounds was truly fantastic. It seemed each time we turned a corner there was an intricate carving or colossal tree. Definitely a top 5 wat in the Angkor area. Not to be missed!

Anyone who visit Siem Reap would go to find out Angkor Wat undoubtedly, but Bayon Temple will often be my favorite. There is something miraculous about it. Staying within the temple of all the 200 smiling faces, a person must question about just how amazing...More

Bayon is covered with faces on the sides of the towers and everywhere else. The magic number is multiples of 54 happy and 54 angry faces!

Get your tickets early and be here before opening time (I think 07.30) and hopefully you will avoid most of the people. Get a guide, it’s worth the money to know what you are looking at. You can feel the history!

No you don't need another ticket - you should be good for 3 visits - besides you can visit on the same day - morning or it gets too hot - do ankor wat first

This sad story is all over the web. An elephant used for tourist rides has died of exhaustion at Angkor. As this is clearly not an issue of travel and tourism, but one of animal welfare and animal rights, I don't understand... More
