Absolutely beautiful little temple surrounded by jungle/trees, but not too close to be oppressive. Mostly in ruins in the process of a slow restoration, but the center towers are in lovely shades of pink sandstone and creams and greys (some black soot due to a forest fire), and there are still a number of beautiful, intricate carvings (love the monkeys...

This is a bit away from Siem Reap so we combined it with a trip to Beng Mealea. It is quite small so probably will take you less than an hour to look around. The carvings in the stone are amazingly detailed and these are the unique feature here.

The beautiful warm colour of the sandstone of this temple makes it different from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. It's on a much smaller scale too and if I remember correctly it was built aa a nunnery. The detail of the carvings is amazing and all in all for me the most beautiful temple I visited in Cambodia.

Although we did this at the end of our hot, long day we rushed through it but still very interesting. If you are strapped for time it is a temple that i found I could have passed on

This temple is very small compared to Angkor Wat but has very intricate sandstone work. Built 1200 years ago and is worth a visit if you have a few days. Uses the same Angkor Wat tickets. Takes about an hour to get there and another hour to get back. So a nice half day excursion.

The temples around the Siem Reap area of Cambodia are extensive and fascinating. This temple is particularily beautiful with its red stone color. The smaller temple complexes are very interesting and don't have the hordes of tourists that Angor Wat has. Make sure you see the lesser temples in the area. They are wonderful!

The temple is about 35 km far for Angkor's main highlitghs, but Banteay Srei deserves the travel. The temple is at the top of the "long route" of the visit of the Angkor tenples park. On the way, you can also visit some of the less known and less crowed temples, and enjoy the lanscape, small villages surronded by coconuts... More

This is one of my favourite spots. A smaller temple than many others, but the carvings are beautiful and better preserved than other temples. After sunrise at Angkor Wat I like to get away quite quickly to catch the early sun on the Royal Bathing pools on the way and then wander around Banteay Srey before the crowds arrive. It... More
