This was my favourite. Although small the detail in the walls was amazing. Don't forget to go out a little further on your visit and see the river carvings.

The temple itself was really different from the others. Absolutely beautiful and very different carvings. Temple is more Hindu in style than others without heavy Buddhist changes and is very beautiful stone in a lovely forest setting - without the crowds as well. However highlight was the journey! After a few days of Siem reap city and Angkor park it... More

I was really looking forward to this one even though it wasn't the biggest. It was a wonderful drive out of the city to the country side. Unfortunately, my driver, didnt want to do this place first. I had wanted to see a couple of sites and this wound up being last on the route. It started pouring rain the... More

The amount of restoration done to this temple is minimal compared to its more prominent cousins such as Bayon and Ta Prohm. It is something different as compared to the rest as well and definitely worth a visit.

After seeing the likes of Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat we were still told this was one of the most beautiful temples. When we arrived the landscape was astonishingly beautiful. True Cambodian country, however upon arriving at the front of the temple it was clear that there was an air of disappointment. The temple was not the pink sandstone colour... More

The building has intricate carvings that deserve a long time of observing. Really beautiful buildings. That said, it is small. It is minuscule compared to any other Angkor sight. Furthermore it was impossibly crowded when we went there, lessening the experience. Bantaey Srey is a long ways away from the rest of Angkor, and it's drawbacks can make a visit... More

Take the time to go a bit out of the way to see this small and beautiful temple. It is built from a pink stone that is very strong and has not crumbled (as have so many others of its more famous neighbors). The result is that the carving looks crisp and almost new. How marvelous. Although the entire temple... More
