Nothing Much to see Here

Srah sarang provides a good view of the lake but thats about it. There is nothing much to see. It is part of large circuit tour so can be skipped by visitors.

This temple is opposite Banteay Kdei temple just crossing the road with only laterite basement elevated about 2-3 meter from ground with Some remains of Naga balustrades. This place looks like pier in the past with view of manmade lake with shade of trees. Ot's very hot when clombing up the top flat floor. It's nothing much to see there... More

First impressions are lovely tranquil site. Nothing much left to see but you get the feeling of why they chose the area. However lots of stagnant water with literally millions of mosquitos. Hubby got 6 bites in a matter of minutes. We dod walk round to the village but really nothing to see other than homes on stilts and felt... More

It's easy to feel as if one's stay in Seam Reap is like staying in a theme park, so moments when you actually can feel and see what life is like for native Cambodians as they relax in their home ... these moments are too few and far between. Here is where one such moment happened. After glancing at where... More

Quite pleasant to stand here for a moment relaxing, It is nice around sunset (and I assume rise) but it is certainly not a must see.

Srah Srang is a large lake that used to be the royal bathing pool and it was built by King Jayavarman VII at the end of the 12th century. Watching the sunrise or sunset here is a much better experience than Phnom Bakheng or Angkor Wat because it is much more deserted and you will have some peaceful moments to... More

Srah Srang means ‘royal bath’. This small baray has held water for more than nine centuries. It is located to the east of, and adjacent to, Banteay Kdei, and is easily viewed from the stone landing stage opposite that temple’s east entrance. The landing stage gives you a nice view of the baray and is worth a quick visit before... More

Small place on the river with the remnants of a boat dock. Used to be the viewing platform for the king to watch races. If you have a few minutes stop and check it out.

Lake that was used by royalty, in the angkor wat circuit. If you get tired during day tour, there are shacks nearby that sell delicious local and western cuisine. Souvenirs near the spots are cheap to buy. Nice place to relax by the lake during tiring temple tour! Near its the Banteay Kdei.

If you're on one of the quick temple visits, things can get hot and tiring. It's easy to rush from temple to temple in a frenzy of photo opportunities. Where was that? You might ask the following day! Take a break here as you move between temples. Just look out across the water. This was a Royal Bath. Contemplate on... More
