It was a bit of a tuk-tuk ride to Banteay Srei, being about 23 miles from Siem Reap, but it was worth the trip. You get to see the countryside and how the people live. That was particularly interesting to me since this was my...More
bantay srei is not in the angkor wat complex, its about 20 minutes away from the other temples but this should not stop you from seeing it if you're in siem reap. its called a ladies temple mainly because (according to our guide) it was...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 to one of the Angkor Wat temples for sunset, but decided to visit the Land Mine museum near Banteay Srei instead. Just as well, as the cloud cover increased so no sunset - just the amazing gold outline behind the jagged cloud fringes - looked like forked lightning! The most important thing about BS is the exquisite sandstone carvings - small but beautifully-formed - so go for that reason not the colour.
