We started here and this temple is very impressive... Very big area to explore (basic climbing skills recommended)... Do not miss out to visit this one when in Ankhor!

Good for history and architecture buffs, a photographer's heaven... Highly recommended... Good to have a guide here to explain the scriptures on the walls of the perimeter surround it.

What is there not to like about Bayon temple?! Nada. You can't complain about the heat, just bring the necessary sun protection & drink lots of water, unless you want to tell mr.sun to stop shining

You will need to buy a ticket to visit the temples of Angkor from the one and only onsite main ticket office. A ticket is valid for entry to all temples on the complex, you cannot buy a ticket just for one temple. A one day ticket is $20, a three day is $40, and a 7 day is $60.... More

Bayon is the 'face' temple - a 'must see' in Angkor - if you don't have much time, make time for this one.

I was really amazed on the stone faces with different facial expression. In fact, it was our first destination of our tour. Make sure you come here at around 7 am to avoid too much people.

What a temple!! Awesome, magnificent, inspiring, stunning, etc. No amount of superlatives is superfluous. Another temple definitely worth a second visit.
