We visited Banteay Srei around 10am in the morning and were overwhelmed by bus loads of tourists. Visiting this temple used to be a delightful experience because it is in a beautiful setting, and the stone carvings are magnificent. Now, you can't stand still without being jostled by others. Very disappointing.

This Temple is far out of town, so best get an early start - also to avoid the busloads of tourists that arrive from about 9 am. I enjoyed the intricate art work and that the centre of the Temple is cordoned off, so plenty of opportunity for good photographs. The surrounding area is also beautiful, with walkways to assist...

It is quite a small site compared to Angkor, but there are extra things to see/do like the botanical garden and a boat ride (around what looked like a swamp). Make sure you have an Angkor Wat ticket as this covers Banteay Srei entry. Still... More

This temple is magical, surrounded by it's most with water lilies. The carvings are so detailed it is impossible to believe they are so old and were covered by the jungle. Do make sure your visit is either early in the day or later in the afternoon to avoid crowds.

It is quite different place from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom where only black, white and grey colours are. Yellow and delicacy sculpture give a very different feeling.

The older temple was built in the jungle called Bantheay Srei temple(the ladies temple). It's 25km from the city.

Of the 100s to visit this temple is not to be missed. Get a tour funded wither through your hotel or at the ticket office. We'll worth it
