This was one of the temples we visited while on the Angkor Watt tour in Siem Reap. This tour was great from start to end. Don't miss this tour if your in Siem Reap.

Bayon was an incredible temple to visit the faces are well preserved or reconstructed and we were simply awestruck to be there. A must stop for anyone visiting the Angkor Wat temples.

You can do a 3 day or a 1 day. 1 was enough for me. I enjoyed Bayon the most. A guide for a few $$ is worth it as the history is incredible.

I used my bike, exhausted! But when I see this temple, It makes me really statisfied!! I love with this temple. Fallen in love! The story behind it. They keep the carving on the wall, so visitors can not touch it. I hope this site...More

If you are doing the temple tours then this one is worth doing. Newer than Angkor Wat but in poorer condition. Still worth the visit.

This is a small part of the incredible temple complex that forms the many faceted conglomeration of ancient places of study and worship. Take note of the position of the many similar temples and wonder at the reasoning behind their construction.

A bit more run down comparing to Angkor Wat but it is still amazing. It is the second temple in the short tour we did on our first day. Amazing Also, you can see the elephants around it.

No you don't need another ticket - you should be good for 3 visits - besides you can visit on the same day - morning or it gets too hot - do ankor wat first

This sad story is all over the web. An elephant used for tourist rides has died of exhaustion at Angkor. As this is clearly not an issue of travel and tourism, but one of animal welfare and animal rights, I don't understand... More
