Siem Reap, Cambodia

Banteay Srei turned out to be anti-Angkor. It was everything that Angkor Wat was not.
First off, Banteay Srei was remote, even by Cambodian standards. It took more than 30 minutes by tuktuk from Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. Making the trip cost an additional $20 to the tuktuk per-diem rental. Despite the distance and the added cost, the rewards of visiting Banteay Srei were manifold.
