This a little distant from Angkor Wat therefore fairly less hectic. Still protected by the Angkor area pass however, you're likely to have getting into. A bit of bit of a bumpy tuktuk ride, but easily feasible from Siam Reap. This particular temple is acknowledged...More

One of the older temples in the Angkor complex, this is built of red sandstone and is very striking. Not as large as some of the other temples, but every bit as interesting. The totality of the temples in the Angkor complex is amazing. Worth...More

This temple was highly recommended, but it wasn't one of my favorites. It certainly is one of the more beautiful temples but it's also one of the smallest. You can only walk around it. The surrounding area is nice too. I honestly cant recommend this...More

Beautiful temple. Best seen early morning to 12 noon. Too hot beyond that. There were 3 temples that were orange. They were all beautiful and part of the big circle tour. Do not miss the smaller temples. You will have the most fun there.

Designed by females? Very intricate carvings. A bit different. Hindu never Buddhist. Old and small but interesting

Further away of Siem Reap, means also less people. Took a tuk tuk for the day and combine this visit with Kbal Spean and Beng Mealea. Probably the best day of my week.

How do you compare temples? Srei certainly does not have the grander of Angkor Wat or the detail and intrigue of Angkor Thom...nor the excitement of Ta Prohm, but it’s very small. When we arrived in the afternoon, there were no tourists. Only a few...More

The delicate carvings and the unusual color made this the favorite temple among all that our family visited in Siem Reap. It was a unanimous choice.

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

I think you have the option to do more than one temple all together. Check on line... The ticket that I got was around U$D 62 y was for more than 3 temples.
