This is a small but well kept temple. Take a TukTuk there for 25-30USD round trip. Well worth the trip there and back. P’s. Don’t eat at the drivers suggested restaurant on the way back if it is called Rom Chong Angkor. Give that tourist...More

It's a small Hindu temple ruins. Some gorgeous carving in pink sandstone but it takes an hour to get there. Not worth the drive alone so make sure you make a full day of it and see some things in the surrounding area.

Out of all the tempkes I visited, Bantay Seri was my favorite. It is small, but well preserved. The carvings and wall decorations are amazing. Definitely worth visiting.

It's easy to get overwhelmed by all of the temple visits. This temple is smaller and less crowded than some of the others. It's often very delicately carved, the stone is pink tinged, the level of preservation was often striking, and the overall experience was...More

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

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.
