Bayon is my favourite of all the Angkor temples. We went there straight after watching an uninspiring sunrise at Angkor Wat, and there were only two other people there when we arrived (only a handfull arrived while we were there). As the Lonely Planet says, it does look like a "glorified pile of rubble" from a distance, but the carvings on the outer walls are brilliant and there's also something very special about all those giant faces gazing serenely out across the horizon.
