Banteay Samre Is by far one the best temples to visit But one of the most missed out from your visit to Siem Reap. If you enjoy Ankor Wat you will love this one its made from a red sand stone bricks which makes it so photogenic ...The big down fall is that its off the main track from all... More

Well what a place. Again it's hard to imagine these temples being built and being used. They stand so majestically.

This site is not covered in the standard 'small tour' or 'big tour'. However, it is definitely worth the 15min ride out. Much less crowd and a very well presented site.

i reached this temple in the afternoon when i thought the tour was over... it's quite far from the rest and is kinda hidden.. it is situate near another lake where you can see local fishermen fishing for their living.. the area is very nice and there's excellent shade from the towering trees surrounding the area.

Banteay Samre was our 5th temple of the day, maybe a temple too far, maybe we were templed out. It is still impressive when you think it was built 800 years ago, but to a tired photographer & builder it didn't hold too much interest and known of the features had the "WOW" factor after visiting Baneay Srei. To be... More

There were not many people around when we were there. This is not on the must do list for the big tours, perhaps because it is quite a distance from some of the main temples. But the fact that we were there with so few people is one of the attractions given that Angkor Wat can be overrun with people.... More

About half km from E of East Baray. The anctuary tower is nicely restored. The bas-reliefs are also in good condition. This is a less-visted temple and you are away from the crowds of Angkor Wat and angkor Thom.

We visited this temple in the middle of the afternoon and it was almost devoid of tourists! It seems that this temple is often left out of the tourist circuit because it was constructed in the same style as it's grander sister Angkor Wat. Nevertheless, it was a worthwhile visit! This is one of the most intact temples in Angkor... More
