So this temple is definitely on a smaller side as fas as other more prominent temples are concerned, but it is also very interesting to see. There are so delicate carvings on the walls of this temple that it’s called “woman’s citadel “. Also the...More

Banteay srei has the finest carvings of all the main temples around Siem Reap. We arrived at about 9:30 and the temple was relatively quiet. The colour of the stone and the carvings made for fantastic photographs.

This was my 2nd in Siem Reap Cambodia, but my 1st to visit BS temple. It was amazing, the carvings, the color of stone, and the three towers for the three of Hindu gods. We are proud of this temple.

Most beautiful temple in Angkor. This temple is remote (50km€ but really worth seeing. Probably the most beautiful.

Small temple complex built in sandstone. Intricate carvings still remain. Not as busy as some of the other temples

This temple is about 45 minutes by tuk-tuk out of the city center or 20 minutes by car. We chose the tuk-tuk as we enjoy the sights and sounds and smells. It’s wise to have a mask or a scarf as it can get quite...More

This was the last temple of many over 3 days & did not think I could still be impressed. I was wrong, I was thrilled, it has carvings equal to if not better than some in the museum. It is 30km from Siem Reap, but...More

I enjoyed exploring this temple on the complex. You can get it mostly to yourself (especially if you have the right Tuk Tuk driver!) and spend an hour admiring the architecture and learning about the history.

We were there in the late afternoon (4 p.m.) in March on a slightly cloudy day but even then I would have been hard-pressed to call the sandstone colour "pink", more like a "pale reddish-brown". We were supposed to go back... More
