This is one of my most favorite temples. Well worth the long travel. It seems to be more well kept from the other temples. The mini museum is very informative. The stones have a lovely shade.

Small is beautiful! Fantastically detailed carvings, and stones that are a lovely colour in the afternoon sunshine.

Banteay Srey is one of my favorite temples of Siem Reap. It about 30 km out of the city (take a taxi instead of a Tuk Tuk). The intricate stone work is in most places still in very good condition and it makes for some fabulous photos. It's only a small temple but makes up with it's location, the water... More

A small temple by size but the detailed carvings are great. This temple is further out but well worth the drive. Seeing the countryside and villages adds to the trip. You can also visit some very early brick temples on the way.

This temple is much more different than the ones around Angkor Wat because it's built from sandstone. The clay that they have used has turned it red, which is really interesting. The temple is about 30 minutes out from Angkor Wat, so if you plan on going to the Landmine Museum, you should stop by here as well. It's relatively... More

Smaller than others but no less beautiful, the stone carvings are interesting and lovely and it's small enough that you feel you can explore it fully!

This is a smaller place that pack a big punch. The intricacies of the stone work are worth seeing plus the stone monkey/guards around the temples. If you get overheated stop at the little hut and have them crack open a coconut to replenish you!
