Not just another Temple

The architecture and the sculptures captured at this temple are incredible...although they are not a patch on Angkor Watt they still give an understanding of the people.

This temple is one of my fave temple. it is located at the east of Siem Reap. It is also well known as Lady Temple. Like no other Siem Reap temple, most of the building still exist and you can clearly see the Temple relief. Thus you can also find the Apsara there and paddies view at the outer gate.... More

The temple is outside of the cluster near Siem Reap, but it is worth the trip. The level of carving is incredible and well preserved. Get a tour guide to explain the different buildings and carvings. Go in the late afternoon for the best light for photos. It is also one of the least crowded temples.

This temple is built earlier than most of the others in the Angkor Wat area. The carvings and symbols are different and I did find them more beautiful than many of the others I've seen on the other temples. It is quite a small temple and the drive there on a motorbike from Siem Reap is about an hour. The... More

There's no denying why so many people show up at this place. Tons of beautiful, intricate carvings and a very unique stone color when compared to the rest. It's a must see when in Siem Reap but don't expect it to be a spiritual experience... Instead you'll find selfie sticks, glamour shots, tons of gifts shops and tour groups in... More

We visited this temple on our last day of a three day temple pass. Temple was beautiful and in the middle of nature. We visited also the land mine museum on the same trip.

This was my favorite temple out of the whole angkor complex. It is relatively small and quiet however the carvings have lasted the test of time excellently. The interpretation centre next to it also has some fantastic information on the construction of the temple and the materials used which for some reason the angkor museum and other temples lack. Its... More

The journey is a treat in itself as you see lots of senary and then when you get there lots of viewing spots to see workers in field. Well signposted and good place to eat. Temple really peaceful.

The ladies temple makes for a nice visit, with built up infrastructure for tour busses and many visitors. Try to go early, as there is scant shelter from the sun and even less protection from throngs of tourists. The pinkish sandstone is intricately and extensively carved, making this a worthwhile visit. Too bad it's impossible to visit every temple at... More

Its a 45 min tuk tuk ride from siem reap, but its worth every bit because of the most beautiful and intricate stone carvings. The ride to Bantey Srei will give you a great perspective of village life. Very enjoyable. Make sure to buy the Palm sugar on your way back!!! Its delicious with coffee
