We came from Kompong Thom from where it is a common trip for tuktuk drivers. The road is good and not unusually bumpy. At the site we met a local young man who charged us $7, which, he said, went to the local organization. Our guide had reasonable English whch he was trying to improve, and seemed to know a... More

We travelled to Sambor Prei Kuk and stayed a night at the wonderful home stay of mr. Teng. Very quiet area with pre-Angkorian temples in the woods. We were accompanied by a guide from the local community (10 dollar). Highly recommended! We stayed for one night at the home stay of mr. Teng (number 7). This was a wonderful experience,... More

This is not the best kept temple, so not Angkor Wat nor the Bayon, but it has two things which make it delightful. The first one is that you may find only a few locals. So you will not find large crowds of national groups with their respective guides. The second is that everything is scattered around a beautifully forested... More

We went there by car from Siam Reap (private driver). The temples's archtecture is completely different from Angkor (much older) and there are very, very few tourists. You can take a guided tour there by a local guide. The entrance fee is just $3 per person.

One of my most cherished highlights in Sambor Prei kuk was our home stay. This is a wonderful way to experience everyday rural life in Cambodia and interact with the beautiful Khmer people. Our host family was delightful, the food was delicious and our shared accomodation was very clean and comfortable.

We (family of 4) had a 1.5 hour stopover here on the way from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh in July 2016. It was a sunny day and extremely hot (my guess: around 32" C). We took a guide to see the temples, who warned us of the risk of dengue fever and recommended that we mosquito repellent. We applied... More

We stayed for 3 nights with a Cambodian family. No electricity, no running water. But soooop friendly people, givi,g you the best room of their house. Cooking delicious local food. Although we could not communicate, as the family did not understand nor spoke any word in another language, we had a great time. We made bike rides to the Sambor... More

This is not as well known as Angkor Temples, which means you can wonder the park without the big tour groups. We had the offer of a tour by a young man who arrived on his motorbike. His English was fair and we got a lot of knowledge we would not have gotten just wondering as there is no signage.... More

Set of three temple complexes constructed in the 6th to 9th century CE in an ancient capital. There dating makes them pre-Angkor as well they are Hindu, rather than Buddhist (despite the new Buddhas in some of the temples). These are mainly ruins following bombings in 1970 by the Americans. If you are keen on seeing the remains of what... More

this fascinating place is about a 3 hour drive from Siem Reap. We did not see any other tourists while we were there. The pre-Angkorian was built in the 6th century and although many of the temples are damaged, there is still a lot to see. More than 100 temples which were mainly built in brick and originally covered with... More
