“Large manmade lake”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

You see this opposite the Banteay Kdei temple. Unfortunately you can't go down to the waters edge as the steps are blocked off.

Besides dogs and the usual local sellers you don't see many people over here.

Wouldn't go out of my way at all to see it.

“Not worth visiting”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

I went there to see the sunrise without knowing as my rumo driver took me there instead of Angkor Wat saying too many people there. Actually because it is more convenient for him as
it is located on the way to our next visiting place. But waiting for the sunrise , I could have chat with other visitors from many countries and could see small lao children and a puppy, a hen with chicks moving around.

“Biggest swimming pool in the world :-)”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 via mobile

According to our driver this is the biggest swimming pool in the world. I seriously doubt it..;-) However, its the King's swimming pool and if you imagine he was taking a swim there...Unfortunately a couple of shops have set up there and of course the all-known " buy-something" is very hard if not even impossible to avoid...

Reviewed 22 October 2013

Very impressed by the size of the lake which is man made. A good view whilst on your way to Angkor Wat.

“Impressive Lake”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

A very impressive man-made lake (Baray) immediately opposite the temple of Banteay Kdei. Apparently this was built as a Royal swimming place. More impressive though is that it has held water continuously for nine centuries. Other than the water there is only a small ornamental landing to recommend it.
