Close to Angkor Wat and well worth the visit. Highly recommend having a guide to explain all that you see. Lots to take in.

Angkor Thom consists of the Bayon Temple, the Elephant Terrace, the Terrace of the Leper King, among other temples & ruins. The complex itself is huge and is not walkable. Please ensure that for your sightseeing, you take a tuk tuk or a car or go by bicycle.

This is the second temple we visited. Although i am glad we visited Angkor Wat first, by 9 AM this place was so crowded that it was almost not worthwhile....but still a must visit.

The temples are so magnificent I can't emphasize enough how worthwhile a visit is, especially with a professional guide. We learned so much about the Hindu and Buddhist cultures and beliefs and the mythological stories attributed to each Temple. A very spiritual experience.

This temple is the best of all. It is amazing to see how the trees are becoming part of the temple stones. The movie tomb rider was shot here. Do not miss it. No climbing required.

I loved this temple. The entrance with the good and evil faces lined along were intriguing enough. Each face different. The temple itself is beautiful everywhere you look there's a face. We climbed to the top of one of the smaller libraries to get a view of the complex. Steps were a bit tricky but worth it. Beautiful doorways and... More

Angkor Thom( Bayon) is the main attraction not to be miss beside angkor wat. Built by King Jayavarman VII, its uniqueness is the 4 face carved stone tower and row of good gods (deva) and bad gods ( forgot...) at the entrance of gates. Make this the priority of visit beside angkor wat.

So close to a higher culture, so beautiful, amazing. Make sure you have at least 1 hour to spend there although I could have spent at least 2. Find a quiet spot and just sit and observe, it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. In my opinion, better than Angkor Wat.

This is a superb site and must do visit from Siem Reap. Easily accessible, the spectacular architecture of the Bayon temple with its giant heads is quite haunting. Go there!

Being one of the seven ancient wonders of the world does not do this temple justice. It is a mind-blowing experience. To see the faces on the temple pillars is straight out of a movie set and could not have been more impressive. The carving details and the statues put you back into a different time when religion actually meant... More
