Over a dozen temples exist in the Angkor Archaeological Park, and there are even more outside of the Park. It was hard to choose which temples to visit. I’ve already gone over our favorite temples – Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, and Preah Khan. Here are the other temples we visited during our three days at Siem Reap in order of preference: (1) Banteay Srey, (2) Ta Som, (3) Banteay Kdei, (4) Phnom Bakheng, and (5) Neak Pean.
I enjoyed Banteay Srey quite a bit. It is about 38 kilometers outside of the Angkor Archaeological Park and takes about 45 minutes by tuk tuk. Although it is far away, it was nice for us to visit a few temples in the morning and then take the trip out to Banteay Srey. It was breezy in the tuk tuk, and it was interesting to see the less developed countryside. Banteay Srey is different from the other temples we visited since it was made of pink sandstone.
