If you are short on time, please don't make a special trip. If you have seen Angkor Wat, and do not have enough time to see this temple, do not worry. You are not missing too much. Its a long drive to get here.

Loved this temple second to Angkor Wat from all the Wats visited. Cannot explain but the crowds were worse here than anywhere else and it did spoil it a bit. I must be in the background of hundreds of selfies! Would recommend but maybe try first up in the morning while the hoards are still recharging their phones.

this is a relatively small temple but a wonderfully atmospheric place with beautiful detailed carvings. We also enjoyed the tuk tuk ride out there..it cost us 22 USD from siem Reap for the day and we did several other temples on the same trip. It was a Sunday but very busy with coach trips: this place is a very popular... More

Absolutely beautiful little temple surrounded by jungle/trees, but not too close to be oppressive. Mostly in ruins in the process of a slow restoration, but the center towers are in lovely shades of pink sandstone and creams and greys (some black soot due to a forest fire), and there are still a number of beautiful, intricate carvings (love the monkeys...

This is a bit away from Siem Reap so we combined it with a trip to Beng Mealea. It is quite small so probably will take you less than an hour to look around. The carvings in the stone are amazingly detailed and these are the unique feature here.

The beautiful warm colour of the sandstone of this temple makes it different from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. It's on a much smaller scale too and if I remember correctly it was built aa a nunnery. The detail of the carvings is amazing and all in all for me the most beautiful temple I visited in Cambodia.

Although we did this at the end of our hot, long day we rushed through it but still very interesting. If you are strapped for time it is a temple that i found I could have passed on
