First, consider the 37km ride out there; a trip by car costs about $45.00 (or so the hotel says). By tuk tuk is way cheaper but takes a lot longer on a road full of potholes and drivers who don't know their Highway Code. Not for the faint hearted. Because you'd have seen Baphon and Angkor Wat, you'd have looked... More

It is beautiful and very unique, not falling into the 'Indiana Jones' feel that some other temples have. Full of intricate carvings and almost like a doll-house temple, with very tiny doorways and miniature dimensions. Lovely red stone. Feels as if it was made to be kid friendly! A bit far off, so you travel 90 mins, but spend only... More

Though it is smaller than other temples but it is unique as it is constructed with pink sand stone. It is harder and stronger. The premise is very green and nice. Love this place.

Great group of ruins. Banteya Srei was one of the bigger places and about a 45 minute drive from the Angkor Wat area. They have restroom facilities on site and lots of vendors as well (similar to other temple areas). Overall, this one was impressive and worth a visit.

Banteay Srei is my favourite of all. Although its a very ling tuk tuk drive away (around 1 hour) and it is petitie in comparison to the others, it is well worth it. I have been before. On this visit because it was after Chinese new year there bus loads of tourist and it was very busy. They had roped... More

We hit up banteay srei on our last day so we were a little 'templed out' by that stage but it was still very beautiful and something a bit different to the other temples we had seen over the previous days. It took about 50 mins by tuk tuk from siem reap to get there with a good glimse of... More

Much older and smaller than Angkor Wat, this was my favourite of all the ancient buildings we visited in the area. The exquisitely fine carvings, smaller scale and pink colouring gave this place a special charm. It also shows you how temples were built in earlier centuries, and has an excellent display with information explaining the history and the restoration.

Banteay Srei is worth the far ride. It's a 'temple' different from the rest because of the red stone/clay and the fine incravings.

This was our 2nd day of all day touring of temples in Siem Reap. We saw Pre Rup, East Mebon, Ta Som, Preah Khan, Pra Dak Village and Banteay Srie, Banteay Srie (the pink temple) was our favorite. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, but a little hard to understand. Our tour included 4 people total, so it was small... More
