Best place to take really good pictures. I also recommend going along with a guide to hear the stories and the history behind this place. If you go by yourself you will miss a lot.

This temple is reduced to ruins, we hope the restoration project should continue for others to see in the future. The centuries old building suffered destruction by weather and people but we can still see the beauty and learned the historical significance and stories behind it.

This does not hold quite the same level of interest as some of the other temple complexes in the area, but it is definitely a must see visit.

This temple is truly nuts. Were these real architects or mad men. This is an incredible experience if you love history and architecture. 54 towers and 216 faces. My god this is truly an astounding human feat. If you wondered about the pyramids, this is exponential. After seeing this and Ankor Wat and many temples in the Siam Reap area,... More

You need to drive to a separate location for this temple. Its the one with the many faces. Lots of tourists whatever time you go but cooler in the am. They have elephant rides for tourists enjoyment.

I enjoyed this Temple in Angkor Thom and was really glad I had a guide with me to show me the nuances and small details. So many faces (all different and all smiling) So much detail to see and it is one of the more popular temples

Astonishing faces will show even more life if you schedule your visit to early sunset - another benefit of this timing is that most of people leave for sunset to other temples for and Bayon is much less crowded!
