We start the journey after your breakfast to Banteay Chhmar near Thailand’s border in Northweste Cambodia by national road number 6 from Siem Reap and turn right at Kralanh district go through villages. There are some interesting spots to visit such as Buddhist monasteries, rice paddy-field, irrigation water supply for the rice paddy field, we can always make the stop to take some photos of local farmers fish by throwing the fishing-net inside the irrigation to catch fish during rainy season beside their farming. The distance between Siem Reap to Banteay Chhmar temple is about 170 km, which it takes 2 hours and half. We visit Banteay Chhmar Temple is one of Cambodia’s most important and least understood temples from the Angkorian period. The temple complex, its moat, Baray (water reservoir) and surrounding unspoilt environment comprises a unique archaeological site and a vital link in Cambodia’s cultural heritage. For these reasons, it is now one of Cambodia’s top priorities for inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its remoteness from Angkor Wat, in part, explains the lack of in-depth documentation and study of the temple. There are some big beehives on the branch of the big trees in the temple where you can get the great photo shoots. After that, we drive 12 km from Banteay Chhmar to visit Banteay Torp, the temple is a fascinating and interesting site built as a tribute to the Khmer army for their defeat of the Cham army leading to Khmer control of the region.
