Banteay Srei Temple is located some 37 kilometers from Siem Reap town centre and River Queen. A visit to Banteay Srei is usually combined with a visit to Kbal Spean Mountain located several kilometers further from temples. It is within reasonable distance to travel by Tuk Tuk or some visitors may prefer taxi. Tuk Tuk ride takes around 90 minutes going through some nice scenery, providing quite good photo and video opportunities on the way. A visit to Banteay Srei and Kbal Spean Mountain should be planned as a full day activity. There are several restaurants offering traditional Cambodian food of good quality, reasonable prices and great taste.
Kbal Spean climb is around 2 kilometers, not very steep and pleasant and definitely worth visiting.
