This Khmer temple is a highly decorated temple that has been a site for both Hindu and Buddhist worship, over the years, several additions to the temple have resulted in a mixed-influence architecture. The Bayon temple is said to signify the link between heaven and earth, and was built during 1190 AD by the order of King Jayavarman VII. Its main feature for tourist attraction is the collection of bas-relief depictions along its two long, imposing walls.

  • Take a walk around and view the "Mona Lisa of Southeast Asia," the intriguing, smiling stone carving of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara at Siem Reap's ancient Bayon temple.
  • Explore the 51 towers that comprise the Bayon temple, each with its own representation of four huge face stones.

Visitors may fly into the Siem Reap International Airport, and catch a taxi into the city centre, located just 7 kilometres from the terminals. The city centre of Siem Reap is small and flat, and is best explored on foot. Bicycles are available for rent within the city for an extremely low fee for the entire day. Although many locals use motorcycles to navigate the city and the surrounding areas, motorcycle rental to foreigners is not allowed within Siem Reap. Motodops, on the other hand, make up for motorcycle taxis; be sure to confirm the rate before boarding.
