One of the bigger temples that we visited. Just amazing to see in its grandeur. Every temple I have reviewed I have given 5 stars because they all deserve them. You will not be disappointed if you visit this temple as it is very impressive to see.

Really beautiful carvings, too bad there are way too many people, including whole buses, which ruined our visit.

Worth to visit!! Hire a tuk tuk driver and tour guide to visit here. The tour guide will plan the itinerary for you.

I loved this temple. It felt like a university and they say it may have been one. Small but beautiful.

This temple is a little way out from the most popular circuits travelled around Angkor, but it's an easy 60 minute bike ride from Siem Reap, taking you past some less crowded areas and temples, and through the village of Pradak, which is fascinating in itself. Banteay Samre is a relatively small, but quite intact temple built in a similar... More

I loved this temple, it's smaller than the famous Angkor Wat of course, but it's a quaint one. It's far from the main Angkor area, about an hour to get there but it's worth going to see. The color of the temple is a bit pinkish which is quite different from the usual temples we have visited. The detailed carvings... More

Having read some the earlier reviews, I think there is some confusion between Banteay Samre and Banteay Srei. Banteay Samre is the one made from grey sandstone near the south east corner of the Eatsern Baray. Banteay Srei is the one made from red sandstone, located about 20km north east of Angkor Thom. Anyway Banteay Samre is a well preserved... More

Great temple to explore and not many other tourists around to spoil your shot. Very peacful place that is not too far away from Angkor Wat to discover. Some of the steps are steep but worth it to see this temple up close. Restaurant across road from entrance is good for food/drink break.

This temple is my number 2 of all Angkor temples (after Ta Prohm). Although it is located outside of the small and big rounds, and you need to pay extra 15$ to the taxi driver(for fuel), it worth the visit. We visited this temple on the way to Banteay Srey (to pay extra only once :) ) This temple is... More
