One of my top five temples in Siem Reap. Never miss its intricate and detailed carvings. Unlike the other Angkor temples, this is relatively small when it comes to size. But what it lacks in size, it makes up on its superb carvings! Be responsible when visiting this temple. Don't touch the carvings!

We reach this one just as rain rolled in. Challenge to walk around, but after the rain passed it offered some great views. Watched the moon appear in the East and watched the Sun set in the West and wrap the buildings in a hue of gold.

An attractive temple, much simpler and smaller than most, but there's something appealing about it being built on a much more human scale. Many of the carvings are surprisingly fresh and clear.

As title says, it's a nice slightly different looking temple that is off the beaten track, i.e., it takes a while to get there. We did this at the on our third day of temple tours in Siem Reap - all by tuk tuk, and were a little templed-out by then. It's a nice ride and you get to see... More

Many say this is the best temple in the Angkor Wat area; it's certainly pretty. The sandstone is a reddish colour, different to the other temples. Our guide called it the "Ladies Temple". The carved frescos are in very good condition too and very easy to see. Be aware that to protect these you obviously can't get too close to... More

This temple is cool in that it's almost a miniature version of the other temples in Angkor. It almost has a fairy tale feel. Because of its size, it can easily be visited in under an hour (although you could spend more time, if you wanted). The problem is, the thing it's famous for - its incredibly intricate carvings -...

This is a beautiful temple made of a reddish sandstone . It is different than some of the other temples and interesting to hear the history from our wonderful guide Long

The entrance has the usual eager sales stalls, but once at the temple you will be in awe of the detailed relief carvings in this smaller temple. Worth the drive out of the main complex to view.

Given the distance, we kept this visit for our 3rd day of temple-hopping. We also decided to use a tuk-tuk instead of a car, in order to have a better view of the countryside along the way. Both decisions did work well for us. The amazing quality of the stone carvings here are the more striking if you’ve already seen... More
