The rain sent everyone away around lunch. The rain stopped and there were very few people there. Great photos.
This is out of the way and of modest size but the carvings are very detailed. Arrive before the buses for the best photographs. Ask your driver to stop at the Land Mine Museum for an honest educational event.
Carved for pink sandstone and about 35 km from Siem Reap through picturesque untouristed villages. Everything is I miniature compared to Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Banteay Srei is surrounded by some forest with a little trail to give views of rice fields, the famous hill where the stones of Angkor Wat was quarried and the first Jayavarman declared the... More

After Bayon, Ta Prohm, and Angkor Wat - this is the remaining "can't miss" temple in the area, in my opinion. The carvings still look like new, and the pink/orange sandstone is really unique. If you're spending more than 1 day in this area (and have hit the temples I already listed, as well as the Phare circus), definitely make... More
Banteay Srei is a bit far away from Siem Reap and most temples. It is, however, a jewel. Small, but contains probably the best carvings in Angkor. It worth a visist. It takes about 1 hour to get there by tuk tuk. We chose to mix the visit with the Grand Tour, and it worked out pretty well. Even standing... More
Of all the temples we saw, this was my all time favorite. The temple is smaller and surrounded by water filled with lotus flowers. The fine detailed carvings from the stone masters of long ago are an absolute wonder! It is easier here to get a feeling of what life must have been like as the temple complex is more... More
We wanted to see this beautiful temple, but it's a ways out. We got a tuk tuk and drove through the countryside, very exciting! Our driver mr pheng was great, knows the country, good restaurants, speaks English well and has a great sense of humor, highly recommend him! You won't be disappointed by the temple or pheng, great day!
This one was worth the drive and getting up early. When we arrived there were no buses on the lot...only a few cars so the visit was relaxing. There are so many carvings to see here. Once again we were happy to have a guide to point things out to us and show us the best views. Everyone must leave... More
Banteay Srei is substantially further away than the bulk of the Angkor area temples, but it is well worth the trip. It is covered by your temple pass for admission. We went by tuktuk to get there, and while it takes longer that way than by car, it's quite a pleasant drive, with much to see on the way. Its... More
