"The Bayon at Angkor Thom" Top 5 Page for this destination Angkor Thum by shrimp56

Angkor Thum Travel Guide: 249 reviews and 845 photos

There is more to Angkor Thom than the Bayon, but it is the most spectacular part and since we had limited time -- well Bayon it was!
.
The Bayon is best known for its many enigmatic faces, but don't miss the rest of the experience inclusing the many bas relief freizes depicting history and daily life.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Taking a slow walk through to the center ...
  • Cons:Watch your step!
  • In a nutshell:Worth MUCH more time than we had.
