One of my favourites.

The red colour of the sand stone will give you some beautiful photos. Take a hat and a bottle of water as not heaps of shade.

Recommended by our friendly trip coordinator (he is like our nanny for the trip) and we love this place. It is a small area unlike Bayon or Angkor Wat, but the ruins here gave us a feeling of 'time-travelling into history'. It is also pure luck that the weather turned windy and there were strange looking fruits falling off the... More

My favorite temple; a must see in my opinion. This temple is small but is so beautiful; the carvings are astoundingly delicate.

It's about an hour from the city centre of Siem Reap, but a must see. The rose coloured stone are different from those at Angkor Wat. There are also many beautiful carvings in the walls, including the "Eastern Mona Lisa"

The temple is smaller than other temples in Cambodia, but we loved its intricate and ornate carvings. Banteay Srei means the Citadel of Women, the temple dedicated to Shiva, about 40 kilometers from Angkor but well worth a visit. It took us more than an hour to walking around, relaxing under the trees.

This temple is mainly carved out of sandstone. Carvings are intricate compared to other Angkor temples. Need to have close up look on the detailed carvings.

This place is very nice but not among the most popular temples! Definitely lovely on It's own. There is something more spiritual and enjoyable about a place that is not filled with hundreds of tourists taking selfies and bumping into you, am I right? :)

37 kms away from Siem Reap this temple is one of the most beautiful ones, a must see. The pink stones used for its construction are far more durable than the ones used for Angkor Wat.

It took us over an hour to get there, and around 45 minutes to go through the entire temple. It would seem unwise to spend over two hours of travel time in exchange for less than one of visiting, here is why it is not: The ride, in tuk tuk of course (25 USD round trip), is interesting enough by...
