Bayon Temple was one of my favorite temples I visited during my trip to Angkor.  It is best known for the giant faces carved into the temples.  Although it has undergone some renovation, it is still in a state of disrepair that makes it feel like you are exploring an ancient temple.

I’m still amazed that they let people climb and explore around these historic places.  I’m sure at some point they will restrict access, but for now it is a historical experience unlike many others.

My guide took me around Bayon Temple pointing out places to take some photos of the huge carved faces.  You can really get up close and personal with some of them.

As we were visiting Bayon towards the end of the first day, I was getting a bit tired and worn out.  A full day playing Indiana Jones around the temples of Angkor in the heat and humidity really took it out of me.  After some quality time exploring the ruins we decided to call it quits and head back to the hotel.  It was a fantastic first day.
