If you're in Siem Reap, how can you contemplate not visiting this place??? Ok, if you're looking at this review, obviously you are going to. So, just look at the pictures, look at the faces, and pack your stuff, get a guide, and just go. Enjoy!!

We went here after sunrise at Angkor wat and spent about an hour. Loved the carvings of everyday life and the faces, the shrine etc. Beautiful and one of the better temples to see, can get quite crowded though.

We were tired as this was the last temple of the day. But man, this was a jaw dropping experience. Detailed art work on the walls of the temple. A guide will be able to explain lot of history if you are not familiar with the hindu culture, regardless get a guide for the "mini tour" as they call it.

Smaller than Angkor Wat but in some ways more impressive. You can see the Bayon temple at its centre. You'll probably enter through the south gate with the four heads pointing in each direction.

The photographic opportunities are endless. The array of temple structures are incredible. It is truly amazing how the structures still exist today
