Much quieter than the other temples. Quite small but great to see. Wander round at your pace. The main temple can be entered but inside there is lots of ruble the towers are very similar to those at Angkor Wat. A nice causeway on the exterior where you can imagine years gone by. Nice to be able to essentially have... More

It is a bit way off but can negotiate with your tuk tuk driver to get you there. We had to go through villages and paddy fields. Luckily we had brought along face masks. The place is not as crowded as Angkor Wat so we could take our time to slowly wonder through. See, look, relax. No haste no noise.

It takes a ride with the tuk tuk from Siem Reap up to Banteay Samre. The ride itself is beautiful and this place is just breathtaking.

It is difficult to rate temples in this complex, since they are all unique, spiritual, and awe inspiring in their own right. Banteay Samre would probably not rank as a must in a one-day schedule, but the beauty is reaching it by bicycle after a wonderful jungle ride. The serenity is worthwhile, and the bicycle allows entry into the various... More

There were a lot less people at this temple than the two more famous ones. Very similar to the others but you get a lot more time to get the best photos and enjoy this beautiful place.

This is a quiet beautiful, peaceful temple similar to Angkor Wat. Definitely worth a visit if you have more than a few days in Siem Reap and/or want to avoid more crowded, famous places.

One of the smaller temples which appears to be visited by far fewer tourists than some of the larger temples making it a far more tranquil experience. Lots of lovely features and, on our visit, an opportunity to see some restoration work taking place.

The carvings are well kept so you can see all the details. For a temple that is built in 9th century, I'd say they have great taste of art and detail. A must see!

The temples are not to be missed!!! If you're visiting Siem Reap or Cambodia, seeing these are amazing (although the most important, imo, are Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom).
