Older than Angkor Wat and less visited / popular. It isn't as impressive as the more famous sights but the construction and materials differ vs. the typical sandstone. If you haven't seen stuccoed brick at any of the places you have visited, this is a good one to visit that isn't too far from the most popular temples.

A popular place in the outskirts of town for catching the sunset. But it's a good 10-minute climb up a steep flight of steps before you're rewarded with a view of the surrounding countryside. Not a 'must do' in my opinion but as a stopover after visiting Bantey Srei, it's not bad.

A ‘temple mountain’ like Angkor Wat (some historians debate this classification, but honestly, who cares?), Pre Rup is one of the most satisfying tower-style temples in the Angkor complex, and one of the better sites for sunrise in the sacred city. It may not be as iconic as Angkor Wat, but it’s also going to be FAR less crowded.

The best temple for sunset. When the sun hits it just before it sets, the temple glows in a beautiful orange. Get here around 5pm if you are already in the complex, if you are just visiting for sunset, make sure you are here by 5:30 at the latest, and stand in front of the temple to get a great shot.

When I asked my guide to stop the car and see this temple, his reaction was 'this temple was not important'. I did stop and went into the temple anyway and was glad with my decision. Built around 900 AD, this is a Hindu temple vs Hindu-turned- Buddha temples at Angkor Wat complex. As it is 'not popular', you don't see many people there. It was made of bricks and standstones which made it unique and different than the rest of temples in the area.
