At more than 30km from Siem Reap, you will need a little more than an hour to get to Banteay Srei on tuk tuk. By much more faster in car and coach of course. The bumpy and dusty roads to Banteay Srei can make the ride on tuk tuk rather unpleasant.
I was caught by surprise with the size of Banteay Srei, you can practically look at the back of the temple from the main entrance. But the great thing about this temple is its lavishly decorated fine carvings almost all over the temple. They look so delicate and they are more than 1000 years old. Well, they don't call Banteay Srei the "Jewel of Khmer Art" for no reason. I have to second it.
Not to be missed by every visitor to Siem Reap.
