“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It's one of the lesser visited wat's. It is small in size but still very interesting as the carvings are much finer than Angkor Wat. So you actually get time to take some great photos without a tourist in sight

“Great and less touristy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Great temple because its quiet and just off the main routes. Has been really well restored and has slightly different architecture to some of the others include great terraces on one of the sides.

“Angkor Wat in miniature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Lovely calm atmosphere, prob about 5 miles from Angkor Wat but I would guess, little visited as we had the site almost to ourselves, fine, elaborate carving, well preserved, not to be missed.

“A smaller temple but well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you are travelling out to Banteay Srei, make sure you visit Samre on the way. Quality over quantity.

“Small temple, less frequently visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a nice temple in good condition. It doesn't take long to walk around, but it has some great long corridors and stone work, and far fewer people than most other temples.
