It takes over 3 hours from Siem Reap but it is worth coming here as it is quite beautiful. Quite a huge Hindu temple on the top of mountain where we can see the landscape of Cambodia and Thailand.

Been to many of Cambodia's great temples but none took my breath like this one. The drive up is very scary for one, so that's the bad aspect of having my breath taken. But once you're up on the top of the cliffs, man, its a sight to behold. Bring plenty of memory cards for your camera. This is such... More

It's a long way out of Siem Reap (about 3.5 hours) but worth it! Its an amazing temple spread across the top of the mountain, close to the Thai border. It is a UNESCO heritage listed site with a checkered past in recent times. There are still bunkers visible and you can see war scars on the ancient facade. We... More

This place is on a mountain top where we can see both Cambodia and Thailand. It has a rich history with ownership conflicts between Thailand and Cambodia. We went with a tour guide and his interesting explanation definitely helped us learn more about the place. If you are looking for a guide to Preah Vihear, I highly recommend Narin (narinviptours@gmail.com).

Don't be a typical tourist, invest in the long jaunt to Preah Vihear and be the king (and queen) of this temple, which full name means "sacred castle shrine." No, seriously, if you visit here, you will be the king and queen of this castle. When my wife and I visited we were met with breathtaking views, mountaintop monkeys, the... More

Located at the border with Thailand, the Preah temple is locked on top of a mountain. Views are spectacular.

I organised a car from Siem Reap for the day to travel up to the Thai border - about a 3 1/2 hour car ride. We left in the morning just after breakfast and travelled through the countryside of Cambodia. It was a fascinating journey with varying landscapes and views. One thing astounded me was that we had mobile coverage... More

On this years visit to Siem Reap, my guide and friend Navuth Ou arranged a trip out to Preah Vihear on the Thailand/Cambodia border. Whilst this costs more than visiting Angkor Wat etc because of the distance, it was worth every cent. The vistas over Thailand and Cambodia are simply breathtaking, and the temple itself much different to those around... More

We booked a customized tour with Nair (Tel: 855 12630771; email:angkorviptours@gmail.com) to Beng Mealea, Kor Ker and Preah Vihear on May 27, 2015. We started at 6:00am as the places were a bit far from Siem Reap. There was no admission fee but you need to pay for motor cycle (USD5/person round trip) or 4WD Pick up truck (USD25/group round...

It's a long drive from Phnom Penh, but worth it. If you are looking for remote temple in real outback cambodia that should exists only in a long gone era, this is it. Combine your trip with Beng Melear and Koh Ker you get one hell of an adventure. The road from Phnom Penh to Preaf Vihear is an adventure... More
