Looking at the buildings and many stone faces of the temple made me take a deep thought about how such a beautiful temple was made. There was high quality architecture, design, engineering and construction skills a very long time ago.

Angkor Wat is huge and this temple is in the centre of Angkor Thom. It is so different in style and construction, it was hard to conceive it was built by the same people. A lot of the temple has fallen down but restoration in ongoing and it still is magnificent. There is not much I can say about it... More

The first time we went it was super early in the morning. So nice and so incredibly quiet with hardly anyone there. The second time we went was right before lunch, terrible mistake... The place turns into an absolute zoo, complete with the group of people following the man with the waist mounted voice speaker and the flag that looks... More

As well as Angkor Wat, this temple is also a must see. Very huge area, bring some time with you. Little side note, in one of the temples was a Tomb Raider movie shot. ;)

When my tuk tuk driver drove past this I couldn't believe it. Great condition, but can get very busy so patience is a must. It was great fun to 've able to climb on some of the structures to get birds eye views and great pic.

Without doubt Bayon is the most attractive temple after the main Angkr wat temple, the details of bas-relifs are stunning and you need a expert guide to tell you about them. in the morning (when i visit) it was crowd and unfortunately i didn't have time to go back again in the afternoon, however, the temple is also very photogenic.

Baton temple to me was the most interesting. The designs of the building was beautiful and there were a lot less people to encounter than the main Angkor Wat temple. I spent the most time here and got some beautiful pictures. I'd highly recommend visiting Bayon temple if you haven't got much time and have to be selective which temples... More

Well maintained. Restoration work is as close as it can possibly get to the original. All the smiling faces of the kings are so beautiful and clearly visible.
