Must see!

A really fascinating temple to see, not far from Angkor Wat! Be sure to check it out while in in the Siem Reap area!

The best way to see Bayon Temple is to have your driver drop you off at one end of the complex and meet you on the other side of the complex after about a half hour walk loaded with photo opportunities.

Another magnificent temple near Angkor Wat. Definitely worth seeing. The architecture is unlike any other places. Less crowded than Angkor Wat.

A fascinating temple with many carved faces to admire. A must see spot of any Angkor Wat trip. It has a more mythical feel than Angkor Wat.

Another unique temple in Siem Reap. Prepare a pair of good walking shoes and take great photo with a smiling Buddha.
