Great to see another temple with so many further different characteristics and architectures. A lot of history to build the timeline so not to missed if all the Temples are being seen.

Our guide, Darith Touch, picked us up at five for a sunrise trip to Angkor Wat. It was raining and so we decided to go here since it was further away. We got here at around 6:30 even before the guards. By now it had stopped raining and while still cloudy we got great morning light for photographs. Soon the... More

Banteay Srei is only 45 minutes from Siem Reap and is quite different again from the "big three" being smaller but with a special pinkish red stone with incredibly intricate carvings. Due to it's size it can get crowded so best to get here by 8am before the bus tours start rolling in!

Did not know about this until our guide took us here. This is part of the Angkor Wat tour of "lesser" temples and is included as part of the pass that you would purchase for Angkor Wat. The nice thing about this was that there were not as many tourists so you could walk around at a more leisurely pace... More

Just magnificent. There is not a lot to add about this site except to say you marvel at the condition of the architecture.

While a bit offshite Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, it is one of the major sights and tempel areas of Angkor. If it not part of your package, offer the driver a few ducks to go there - it's worth it. And it is not as overcrowded as the obvious sights in everybody's schedule.

Another must see. Once again no words can do it justice. You just must add to your bucket list and go and see the beauty for yourself.

We were all 'Templed out' but went to this one anyway on our last day and we are so happy we did! This would be our #1 recommended Temple to see if you could only see one! It was originally a Hindu temple and it is unique to the others in the area. The stonework is amazing! Very intricate and... More

A little drive out, but what a delight. We left this as our last temple and it was perfect. It is much smaller but offers exquisite carvings in a completely different vibe. If you are wanting good photographic light consider leaving this until later in the afternoon. It only requires 30 a 60 minutes as it is much smaller than... More

The temple is built of the pink sandstone and looks like it was carved no more than 100 years ago :-) Really, its is in remarkable good condition. Small.
