Located 10km East of Siem Reap this temple is easily reached by car or tuk tuk (get a car). Guide is not necessary, but Angkor temple ticket is. Spend 30 minutes admiring the remaining sculptures, reliefs and inscriptions of this 1100+ year old place.

Fairly small by comparison to other temples around, and the main structures (Still Remaining) are made mainly of brick, its worth looking at if you are out that way, I wouldn't bother to make a special trip though.
