I personally like the structure of this temple more than Angkor Wat. I suggest spending good amount of time here

Fantastic temple featuring the face of the king who build the place. Make sure you visit early to avoid the crowd. The bridge to the entrance of the temple is a good photo spot. One of a kind!

Not really buddhas but the face of the king. Very serene place. I think I'd like to sit down there and meditate.

This beautiful little temple in Angkor Thom is much smaller and newer than Angkor Wat but still a must visit because of its significance in Cambodian history and its beauty. It is so intricately designed that restoration is really a jigsaw puzzle for the restorers. Beautiful Buddha faces and carvings depicting historical records. Amazing

Look out for the walls which are carved with stories of the history of the people. All in all a great experience.

There's plenty of temples to visit around Angkor, this was my third time and Bayon is a firm favourite. I don't think you'll find these 'four faced buddha' carvings anywhere else in the world, there's plenty of long 'corridors' to walk through and explore and the gates entering the temple compound are worth stopping to view as they are surmounted...

My favourite temple in Cambodia. The faces on each temple are amazing. If you just like wandering through have fun but if you really want to get immersed in the history get a private guide Sam Sophea guides - Ask for Sokeurn

Truly magnificent structure of buddhas heads - made from square blocks of stone and perfectly fashioned into these heads. the blackness of the stone, adds to their magnificence
