Not on the scale of Angkor Wat, but definitely worth the visit. Most people come to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat. However, after seeing it, it is definitely worth the effort to see this smaller temple complex. Its size makes it a more manageable complex to view in its totality. Also, there area many carvings and statues which make... More

Banteay Srei which is a small wat seemingly built for women with pink stones and and very relaxing natural environment of trees and water and shade made enjoying the delicate carvings rather than the other very hot wanderings

This is definitely worth the 40 km trek to the temple. The 'Women's Temple' is absolutely beautiful, with intricate carvings in red sandstone. Try to get there a little earlier during the day, as it gets pretty packed (and HOT!) in the afternoon. There are a little too many vendors for my liking, but you just have to smile and... More

These ancient ruins & temples are simply amazing. When you stand & view the stone carvings & architecture that people all those years ago put into these places it is mind blowing. They never had the technology of today yet the structures, positioning & detail is astounding. absolute must see.

It's about 40km outside Siem Riep but worth the drive through pretty villages and rice paddies.This small pink sandstone temple has exquisite carvings dating back to around AD 967.

The temple has so much detail, it will take you an age to walk round and admire it all, while enjoying the sounds of the birds.

It is a good distance from Siem Reap and if you are traveling by Tuk Tuk (how I did it) it will take about an hour to get there. It is in a state of disrepair but it still a great place to visit. It is included in the Angkor Ticket as are most of the attractions in this area.

The three temples at this site are easy to approach, manageable without too much difficult walking, and with beautiful small sculptures. Less crowded, perhaps because of the distance from Siem Reap and very enjoyable.
