A beautiful Buddhist Temple with beautiful, smiling , benign faces carved on it . So life- like , the faces are peaceful . One could sit and watch them for long.

We viewed this with our tour guide without going into the temple. Completely blew me away. So many different aspects to view. Would definitely recommend.

This is my favourite temple to visit. Very unique temple with lots of faces. Great arts. I only don't like the smell inside the tunnel. Bring face mask if you want to. And wear proper shoes.

The Bayon is a massive place full of rooms, corridors and levels! I could have easily spent the whole day wandering around!!!

Stunning and spectacular place to visit. The temple is the most awesome sight and well worth a visit. Really you cannot visit Siem Reap and not visit the temples. There are some great travel guides around as well that are very affordable and provide you with a great day out sightseeing with all the background history included. Definately a must!

In my opinion this was the most interesting and impressive temple of the whole Angkor Wat complex. All the faces incorporated in the structure look very cool!

The towers all have or had four identical faces looking down and it us said that one can see you where ever you are in the temple. A beaufifum place but it does get a bit crowded. Take plenty of water with you.

This was my favorite temple in the whole complex. Make sure you bring your camera because you have a lot of photo opportunities with the faces. This temple should take you about 2-3 hours. This temple will be crowded even during low season. Make sure you bring water and that you camera has enough battery and memory.
