Srah Srang is a large lake that used to be the royal bathing pool and it was built by King Jayavarman VII at the end of the 12th century. Watching the sunrise or sunset here is a much better experience than Phnom Bakheng or Angkor Wat because it is much more deserted and you will have some peaceful moments to... More

Srah Srang means ‘royal bath’. This small baray has held water for more than nine centuries. It is located to the east of, and adjacent to, Banteay Kdei, and is easily viewed from the stone landing stage opposite that temple’s east entrance. The landing stage gives you a nice view of the baray and is worth a quick visit before... More

Small place on the river with the remnants of a boat dock. Used to be the viewing platform for the king to watch races. If you have a few minutes stop and check it out.

Lake that was used by royalty, in the angkor wat circuit. If you get tired during day tour, there are shacks nearby that sell delicious local and western cuisine. Souvenirs near the spots are cheap to buy. Nice place to relax by the lake during tiring temple tour! Near its the Banteay Kdei.

If you're on one of the quick temple visits, things can get hot and tiring. It's easy to rush from temple to temple in a frenzy of photo opportunities. Where was that? You might ask the following day! Take a break here as you move between temples. Just look out across the water. This was a Royal Bath. Contemplate on... More

On the way to Ta Prohm, stopped by Srah Srang. Srah Srang used to be a recrangular Royal Bath. Today it's a Baray or Reservoir. A quiet beautiful place to enjoy some peace. The lake just mirrored the sky, simply magnificent. It's also opposite Bantaey Kdei. The is also a small Cambodian village with some stalls selling food nearly. After... More

Srah Srang is across the road from Banteay Kdei and is a lovely spot (even better if you happen to be there when nobody else is). This is where the royal family would do their ablutions and as far as it goes, I don't think there is a better ablution pond on the planet. If you're not great with steps,... More

The stop by the road is just in front of the wonderful east door to Banteay Kdei, so the small flat terrace on the other side does not look like much. But after few steps up, the view over the man-made reservoir is stunning. The small boat landing is a fittingly elegant spot from where to admire the serene reflection... More

We came here for sunrise and it was beautiful! Hardly anyone there it is an absolute must. it is 12km outside of Siem reap however so if you're cycling like we did give yourself plenty of time but it is well worth the effort
