Always good to see some history when you travel. The faces all smiling stirr your thoughts. I'm not sure if carrying those rocks would make me smile.

An absolute must after visiting Angkor Wat, seeing as you've already paid for the temple pass. Beware that it will look empty from the outside but be incredibly packed once you go inside.

Worth visiting and getting lost in time. Better late afternoon to avoid heat and too many visitors...

This temple was worth a visit. However, you would need a tour guide to explain to you the history behind it. Consider it a must do if you are in Siem Reap.

This is the heart of ancient Angkor Thom, the Khmer Empire's capital.

Located just north of Angkor Wat, what's outstanding about this temple are the many towers featuring large stone faces each facing a geographical direction: north, south, east and west.

Angkor Thom was built and zoned into 4 quadrants. And the Bayon Temple is at the center.

If you're a fan of the Game of Thrones, the many stone faces in the Bayon Temple would remind you of the god of many faces.

This was my second visit to Bayon Temple after a few years. After Angkor Wat I still find this temple mystical and very spiritual. In the early morning and late afternoon light, the majestic rock faces absorb and reflect the sun’s light. You will be impressed.

The look of the place at first glance is enough to take your breath away. Go in the morning or evening for great pictures as the sunlight streaking through the structure is a sight!
I came here right after sun rise at Angkor wat to beat the crowds.
Don’t skip this place! If you are pressed for time... skip ta prohm instead! Hahaha....

Bayon consists of 196 smiling Buddha faces and is a huge complex to explore and discover. I visited yesterday with my husband, sister and two young daughters. It’s the perfect place to lose yourself in the history of Khmer culture, and there is so much to see, on so many levels.
