I am happy to see this temple. There are no tourist or Khmer visitor. It was only some cats. The temple is beautiful and they did a great job with preservation. Many place to climb and explore and take photos. I recommend a visit and eat noodle Preah dak

This is among the fav temples of mine inside the Angkor region. I'm an archaeologist and I've been efficient in Angkor on and off for the final 20 years. I've looked at the temples on the standard tourist path begin being extremely crowded. This temple, just from the standard program is quiet that provides beatifull see throughs. Truly well worth traveling to.

I had not planned on going to Banteay Samre, but our B&B owner suggested we continue the way of ours back from Banteay Srey. I am happy we listened since it was the highlight of the day of ours. Perhaps it was since we'd the whole planet to ourselves for some time. It is a terrific temple with lots of corridors and walkways and rooms. Well worth adding it with the list. Difficult to imagine that it's ever packed.

Banteay Samre might be quite a distance out of the middle of all of the temple visiting action, but do not be deterred - it's well worth it! The degree of maintenance is astonishing - actually the top decorations are nevertheless present! The reliefs are located in a comparable state of preservation. With less visitors, this can offer a far more peaceful alternative to several of the more popular temples. Certainly recommended!

It was a great sight to be greeted as we entered the temple, which was spoilt by the number of tourists. However, worth a visit.

Another small temple that had restoration work going on when we visited. This meant that normal access routes had been closed and so we were climbing over the temple to get to different areas. No crowds but it was the last and the least enjoyable of the 6 temples that we visited in Siem Reap.

The temple was built in the same reign of Angkor Wat, We had arrived there in the evening time before the temple had close, on the way to the temple, it feel so special, it is a country side. Not too many tourist there.

We enjoyed our visit to this temple but I guess it suffered by being our fourth temple of the day and we'd 'templed out'!

The drive out to Banteay Srei and Banteay Samre is through relatively unspoilt countryside and worth the drive alone.

The walk down to the temple passed a number of small market stalls, one of which has a young woman painting local scenes. Throughly enjoyed watch her work and would have bought her painting save that it was in oils, which would have taken three/four days to dry!! We instead bought one of her completed paintings, rolled in a tube, which cost the princely sum of just £8.

We did not have this temple ruin on our list but since it was on our way back from Kbal Spean our driver decided that it was a good site to visit. We were not disappointed. A beautiful temple ruin, well preserved and definitely a site to visit.
