If you have time try and visit Bantey Srei. It is referred to as the lady temple due to its gorgeous pink sandstone and intricate carvings, plus it's dedicated to Shiva. Saw it in the wet and it was fun hopping over the pavings and seeing it all sparkle. A more delicate,small temple but lovely.

This is a small temple set in beautiful woodland but has exquisite intricate carvings in beautiful pink sandstone. It is worth a trip to see a staggering number of beautiful detailed carvings. A walk around the area is good too

This was a beautiful place with amazing architecture, clean grounds, and many people visiting but doesn't feel crowded.

You can use your imagination with this Temple. Small doorways leading from room to room. No climbing like the other Temples we've seen. Very small compared to other sites but a bit of a drive from the city for sure. The carvings are very well preserved. At the end of the visit to the actual Temple there was a group... More

The colour of this temple and the intricate, detailed carvings makes it stand out from the rest. We went in afternoon about 2.45pm and it wasn't quite so crowded, but there were still a fair few tourist groups. Like others I found this detracted from the serenity of this temple and wished there had been the opportunity to see it... More

Deep red sandstone greets you at this lovely little temple a little way out. The wonderful carvings which are in such good condition make this another unique temple. The three towers because of their colour stand out more than the larger temples. As other people have mentioned try and find a quiet part of the day to visit.

Go early if you want to avoid the crowds. Our tuk tuk driver picked us up at 6am for the trip out to Banteay Srei. I actually enjoyed the early morning tuk tuk ride almost as much as Banteay Srei itself. Watching the red sun rise, watching villages come to life and all the kids on bikes and on back... More

A real ruined temple, it is a real shame that the temples have fallen into such a state, you can only imagine what it must have been like all those centuries ago.

This miniature temple north from main Angkor attractions definitely worth a visit! Tip: try schedule your arrival as early as you can - may be before 7:30 am since by 8 am the place was already crowded by large groups of Chinese tourists who made lines to picture themselves in each doorway of the temple, giving us hard times to...

Smaller by comparison to other temples, the carvings are so decorative and so interesting to catch Vishnu and Shiva and try to get a perspective into the past.
