Bayon temple has a great number of large faces which makes it a little different from some of the other temples and interesting to see. I would recommend a visit to here.

I remember reading a fellow tripadvior's review about going to Bayon at sunset and enjoying the peace of the faces alone..and that was exactly what I had set out to do. I got here at around 6, when the sun had just rises, and quietly sat there/ took pictures, for about an hour. The environment was pure magic. Everywhere you peeked you would see a face. I loved it so much that I came here for two sunrises.

-Try to get here before 9am, after that, its asian tourist world.
-Also heard the sunset here is amazing.

This is a brilliant. We went first thing in the morning before any other tourist arrived and it was great. Surreal atmosphere without anyone else here.
