Many individuals take time to go to Banteay Srei for the good sculpture, though I am uncertain just how many see this method on how there or back. It was not rated that seriously in several of the guidebooks I read though I thought it...More

It was among the great temples within the Angkor Complex to stay away from the group of visitors. The structure of the temple can also be more intact and also appears to be well maintained than others. The carvings are a lot more pronounced and...More

Do not mix Banteay Srei (the business owner together with the pink ish coloured stones) with Banteay Samre. Banteay Samre is referred to as the small Angkor Wat, because is equally as gorgeous and well preserved. You are going to need a tuk tuk to...More

Not crowded like the main temples in the big and small circuit, Banteay Samre allows one to really step back in time to enjoy the peace. Many beautiful corridors and courtyards.

This stunning edifice was visited very early in the morning to capture the soft photographic light. We were also fortunate for it to be an overcast day thus minimising the contrasts. A memorable experience to be revisited when we next visit Siem Reap.
