Having enjoyed the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the next stop is the famous Bayon Temple located in Angkor Thom. Located not far from Angkor Wat, the Bayon Temple was constructed by the Khmer King Jayavarman and it is best known for its many towers with smiling faces on each side. There are 50 stone towers within the ruined temples, containing over 200 faces. Each individual face is 4 metres tall, smiling serenely and they all geographically face either north, south, east, or west. Like Angkor Wat, the Bayon Temple can be extremely busy with visitors but due to the size of the complex, it doesn't become too overcrowded. Be prepared for some physical effort when exploring the Temple, as it involves a number of narrow passages, steep flights of steps and towers! The Bayon Temple is a fantastic spot for photographs throughout the day, with plenty of stone faces to choose from. (Photo Credit: Wei Gao, unsplash.com)
