Always something unusual or new to see at the many complexes surrounding Ankor Wat. A must visit site.

Banteay Samre is one of my favorite temples to visit. Lots to explore and many places to get good photos. Try to get here early to avoid the heat and crowds.

Another gorgeous Angkor temple. We were here just before sunset and got to see hues of red and orange against the splendid architecture. I would have preferred this temple to see the sunset compared to Pre Rup, which seems to be the general choice. We had a great visit to this temple and I can highly recommend it.

Banteay Samre can easily be done as part of a tour to Banest Sri. Samre is much less visited. We arrived about 4:30 PM and there were only a few other people. No buss on the parking even! Samre is also one of our favorite Ankor temples, there is something special about this place, more than the peace and quiet.... More

Beautiful temple with unique style in many ways and interesting setting. A ways from the main site, but worth the time to see.

Really enjoyed this temple as it was way less crowded than some of the other temples we had experienced. Really close to Banteay Srei and the Banteay Srei Butterfly Museum and easy to visit all 3 places in just a couple hours.

If you go on a tour go on your own as guides want to tell you everything all at once. It's quite safe on your own.
