Bayon-Information-Thanks-to-JSA

The Bayon Information Centre in Siem Reap on the way to Angkor Wat adds immense value for visitors who want deeper insights on the heritage of the Angkor area.

The new centre is at the joint office of UNESCO and the Japanese NGO JASA (Japanese Government Team for Safeguarding Angkor).

The main exhibition hall is in a pleasant two-storey open-air building with ceiling fans. There are panels and pictures and information about Angkor, the Bayon, and ceramics unearthed near the temples. The centre describes past and present heritage preservation projects in and around Angkor. A US$5 booklet can be purchased. It contains nearly all the information displayed on the panels.

The Bayon centre is open 8am until 4pm (last entry 3pm) every day except Sundays, Thursdays and Cambodian public holidays. Khiri recommends it and has to admit that it is much better than the Angkor National Museum. The entrance fee to the Bayon centre is US$2 per person, with children under 12 for free. Plan to spend at least one hour there.
