This was a long trip for us, a three hour drive from Siem Reap just to get to the area at the foot of the site which is right on the border with Thailand and then a ride in the back of a 4x4 to get to the area at the foot of the temple. From the entry point you... More

The place in itself, the temple and the view are very impressive and deserve their title as a UNESCO world heritage, but it has sadly been overtaken by greed. Thailand and Cambodia have been fighting for this place for several years, which explains all the military and the fact that the thais are forbidden from visiting. The cambodians now make... More

I was in Cambodia for about 30 days and mostly visited temples and this was my favorite. Quite remote and cost us a bit to be able to visit it but so worth it. We took thousands of photos!

Underrated temple with majestic views. It is the culmination of a few Cambodian kings over decades. The view from the cliff at the highest point of the temple is simply breathtaking. The temple was built from stone quarried from the mountain itself. Although not much of it is left, it is still a worthwhile visit, combining the various architectural styles... More

We took a day trip from Siem Reap combining this with Koh Ker & Beng Melea. I recommend a 6.30am departure if you want to do all three as it gets dark well before 6pm and you will have limited time at Beng Melea. Car hire was US$110. At PV base you need to pay another US$10 for entry and... More

We saw this on a one-day trip from Siem Reap; the roads are now much improved so it is easy to do. On arrival at the foot of the hill, the first thing is to get from the car park to the top. You can either take a moto ($5 round-trip) or ride in the back of a pickup ($25... More

Loved it and the only tourists were locals and monks, oh and me! A crazy motorbike or jeep ride up and back add to the experience. Beautiful views from the top.
