I Guess end of wet season you expect plenty of water here. Waterfall is amazing at all levels. Bit rough for me for a swim and too muddy but it is really great to see and hear.

Great place with the lovely views via the very nice natural jungle 🌳in Cambodia. I could see and feel to this place as like as the paradise and peaceful for tourists. Anyway, there is the waterfall with very cold water 💦, fresh air. So nice...More

The stair climb to the Reclining Buddha carved in the rock was most interesting. Beautiful trees, monks who'll take your pictures, and quiet/barefoot walking (leave your shoes near the entrance). Crispy, clean water falls where the local ladies wrapped in scarves come lay down on...More

The park is 50km from Siem Reap and the road precludes using a tuk tuk especially for the last 15km. Scenic views and at the top a fabulous Buddhist Temple and a lovely waterfall. The reclining Buddha is high up a long flight of steps....More

It is very busy and crystal clear the water is not, however it is soo worth the swim. If you have towels take them. You can pay $1 for a lockable metal box to put all your stuff in.

The most beautiful at the countryside. Phnom Kulen is the great national park with waterfall, a thousand linga and the biggest Buddha staying on the top of the mountain. Who loves swimming this place will satisfy you.

When you want to take something in other than feasting on delicious foods, shopping in the markets and visiting the temples downtown, check out Phnom Kulen. It's a wayssss away (about 1:45) and costs $20 for some guy who "cleared" (definitely not paved) a road...More

Just assume the weather will be hot - shorts and light shirts would be my choice with comfortable shoes. Plenty of hotels just make sure you get one with a pool especially with kids. We stayed in the City River Hotel because... More

The only part you may want to avoid is the climb down to the pool at the bottom of the main waterfall - the climb down is easy, the climb back up not so easy. Don't forget there is the river with the carvings in the bed... More
