    • Rhonda, I’m so glad you added this to your bucket list. It’s one of those places in the world that everyone should see!

    • Me too Mariza! I’ve been twice and will probably go back again. Each time I wander further afield and see more of the remote, lesser known ruins, but like you, Bayon remains my favorite.

    • Thanks Andi – great to hear from you. Bayon isn’t the easiest temple to photograph so I was especially pleased by the way this one came out. So glad you liked it.

  1. Wow – your photo is awesome Barb. The definition is so vivid….it is as close to being there in person as possible. Stunning.

    • Thanks Anita! Took this during my third visit to Bayon. The way the temple is situated with regard to the sun and the hordes of tourists who descend upon it every day make it difficult to photograph, so I was particularly pleased with this shot.

    • It truly is a unique place Lauren. I first went in 2007 and then was back last year; the changes are quite noticeable. Some of the temples that I could walk right i to five years ago are now roped off. I’m glad I got to see it before it became such a popular destination but I’d still recommend that it is one of the most stunning ruins in the world.
