Don't be afraid by the stairs as it worth a visit definitively ! But please be carefull especially on the return way. It is very tight and dangerous especially on a rainy day

I don't know what it is about ruins, but they are beautiful. This one has stunning stonework, slightly different than the others, and it was far less crowded as well.

You can visit Banteay Samre on the same trip as the Butterfly Farm, Banteay Srei, and the Landmine Museum. Visit Banteay Samre after you have visited the other attractions. The tuk-tuk ride is interesting and enjoyable. The temple is beautiful with lovely colours and tones. There was no body else in the temple when we visited - it was very... More

This Hindu temple is more than an hour away from Angkor by Tuk Tuk (maybe half that time by car). But it is worth the trip to see the rose-colored sandstones, very nice and still recognizable carvings and structures which actually look like mini temples spaced apart. A trip here also gives an opportunity to see the Cambodian countryside. Serene... More

Banteay Samre is not in the usual itinerary for most tourists to Angkor Wat complex but worth a visit. It is similar in architecture style to Angkor Wat on a smaller scale. It is probably built around same period given the similarities. This temple is not that visited so one can spend hours here admiring the stone carvings. A unique... More

Part of the Angkor complex of ancient temples built to honour the Hindu Gods. Close to Angkor Wat, a must see.

About an hour and a half drive from Siem Reap, this temple is in reasonable order and less crowded due to it being further away. Very interesting with the trees trying to take over the temple. Worth the drive.
