Amazing

Make sure to book a guide and go first thing in the morning to avoid the very high temperatures from noon on. It is absolutely outstanding!

Another of the area's treasures, the Bayon Temple is not to be missed. Having a guide is essential to add depth to the experience.

One of the most beautiful temple. A bit less tourist than Angkor Vat. Just go very early in the morning if want to have a chance to avoid the crowd

We've visited Siem Reap many times, and long ago we learned the secret that you should make time to visit Bayon at sunrise. As the sky lightens, so do the many faces on the temple. It's magical. Better yet--you have the entire temple to yourself. This time, there was only one other couple there, and we got to see the... More

Another beautiful temple in Siem Reap ,one feels serenity here with the huge carvings of Budda staring out at you from this temple from all angles.There is a lot of restoration going on here but it is still a definite to visit.

If you are going to see Bayon, make a stop at the Jasa office in town/ Bayon Information center. The guided tour at the information center is $2. We had to make two different trips as their posted hours are unreliable, but the information and the knowledge we left with was well worth the hassle. Also you can purchase a... More

OMG this temple was everything you have read about and more, I recommend that decent footwear is worn and not flip flops. To get the best out of this and other temples hire a private tour guide, Our tour guide Rany made sure we did not miss a thing

It is hot and there is lots of walking and uneven steps. The details and size and age ... I cannot find words to describe the experience of standing there, walking over those stones and trying to absorb the culture and history. Beautiful site.

Although more of an active archeological site than some temples this does not detract from the spectacle as site has been st up to balance conservation and tourism. Prasat Bayon offers some of the very best examples of base relief carvings, which can be found on the outer walls. On the higher levels you will see its famous array of... More
