Came to Banteay Srei after visiting Pbal Spean and I was amazed at the structures. It is quite a small site compared to Angkor, but there are extra things to see/do like the botanical garden and a boat ride (around what looked like a swamp). Make sure you have an Angkor Wat ticket as this covers Banteay Srei entry. Still... More

This temple is magical, surrounded by it's most with water lilies. The carvings are so detailed it is impossible to believe they are so old and were covered by the jungle. Do make sure your visit is either early in the day or later in the afternoon to avoid crowds.

It is quite different place from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom where only black, white and grey colours are. Yellow and delicacy sculpture give a very different feeling.

The older temple was built in the jungle called Bantheay Srei temple(the ladies temple). It's 25km from the city.

Of the 100s to visit this temple is not to be missed. Get a tour funded wither through your hotel or at the ticket office. We'll worth it

Lovely little temple, a fair journey outside of Siem Reap but doable on a tuk tuk, in fact we preferred it so that we could enjoy the villages and scenery. The temple and grounds are lovely to walk around and far less busy than the more popular temples. Worth a visit.

This complexity of the carvings at this temple are stunning. Absolutely beautiful. It's a little farther but worth the trip. And you get to see some of the countryside. We took a Tuk Tuk and the breeze was very much appreciated as you get pretty hot walking around these temples. There is also a straw market here so we got... More

Stunning! Beautiful! It is a small temple area, but the color, setting, and tiny carvings are amazing considering they are a 1000 years old. If you go over to the souvenir section look up Lourne Lourne, she is a very honest and nice seller.

This was the first temple we visited and it is definitely worth travelling out to see. We went first thing, arriving just before it opened at 7:30am and there was only a handful of visitors so I would recommend going at that time. By the time we left, at around 8:15am the coaches were alright ready arriving, and with it... More
