Must Bayon!

Amazing wonder of architecture. But I am hoping that in future there will be voice guided tours for better understanding.

It was a fantastic site, full of complete, partially reconstructed, and remaining pieces of the Bayon Temple. The multi-faced towers were incredible, as was the view...you can't help but feel like you're an explorer discovering it for the first time... Not to be missed!

Get lost in this monument maze. The colors and the faces are hypnotic. Enjoy going up and down. Go early in the morning to avoid crowd

This is an amazing place - the temple is absolutely outstanding and in great condition. Try and see it when it is a bit quieter so you can enjoy the ambience and significance of these ruins in the middle of the Khmer empire.

This temple is near the forest where many monkeys live. This was one of the few places I saw the monkeys. What was really nice is there are still some large statues inside the temple. Many of the temples have had them removed to museums. They are currently working on renovating or rebuilding parts of this place so you can... More

This is a site that travelers should not miss in Siem Reap. The huge wall faces was spectacular and gave a spiritual vibe even to non-Hindu and Buddhist like myself. It's great that they were able to preserve this world heritage site because the new generation can appreciate its splendor.

This temple was fantastic we visited all the main temples in Angkor and they were all amazing. We had a guide whose knowledge was unbelievable and he told us so many interesting facts about this wonderful area. Lots of brilliant photo opportunities here again. Gets very busy as do all of the most popular temples.

This was my favourite temple at the Angkor complex. The stone heads are so impressive because of their detail and size! Can hardly imagine how they must've built it.

We just loved this temple! It's so impressive and also a fair bit quieter than some of the other temples so it was nicer to roam around. A must-visit!
