If you want a chance to explore a temple that is off the regular tourist route through Angkor Wat, but you don't have time to head out to the further temples, definitely consider Beanteay Samre. It's like an Angkor Wat in miniature, and it is really lovely.

This was the most quiet temple we went too, barely any tourist. We had the temple almost all to ourselves, so we were able to take lots of pictures without anyone else in it! Selfie galore!

I personally felt that this was the best out of all the temples I went to, its the quietest and something made me feel so calm here. The temple may not last too long as almost all the walls are collapsing and have tilted but I think its a must travel place

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.
