Banteay Srei was my first stop on a 3-day tour of Angkor and sets the bar at a very high level at which to judge the other "must-see" temples of Angkor. Located some 32km NE of Siem Reap, it is probably a bit far out...More

The detail on this temple is amazing. Not a lot of people early in the day. So many amazing details. It is an interesting drive to get here as well. Probably my favorite temple we visited.

Many temples in Siem Reap are very beautiful and interesting: However Banteay Srai is my favorite. I recommend to everyone to visit this temple however please try to go a bit early or close to closing time in order to avoid crowds.

This a little distant from Angkor Wat and so somewhat less busy. Still covered by the Angkor area pass though, which you will need to enter. A bit of a bumpy tuktuk ride, but easily doable from Siam Reap. This temple is famous for the...More

The "pink" temple was a wise choice of a stop for us. We loved this one for its beautiful intricate details. We went in the mid afternoon and there were more groups. However it was fine to take some great photos.

This smaller, exquisite temple is easily viewed in an hour. Take a guided tour to get the history and explanation of the intricate carvings covering every surface of this gem. The view of the 3 towers reflected in the pool is not to be missed.

Banteay Srei is often referred to as a gem of a temple and it most certainly is. It is small and covered in the most refined carvings in Angkor and a wonderful selection of beautiful lintels and pediments. You need to walk around the temple...More

This was the first Wat that we visited in Cambodia. Smaller and less imposing than the subsequent temples we visited. We enjoyed it and recommend a visit.

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.
