We made the drive up with our tour guide Ratanak- The Angkor Guide. He's Great! Look him up if you want this tour or any other tour from Siem Reap. He's Incredibly knowledgeable and has a Great sense if humor. I highly suggest this tour for anybody wanting to see something amazing and away from the crowds of Angkor Wat.... More

the combination of scenic natural setting in the mountains, elegant temple ruins sprawled across a beautiful short easy hike, the quietude that allows you to enjoy the rustling of leaves and the multitude of colors playing havoc on the temple walls in the warm winter sun- all of this made this a worthwhile trip for us. we were lucky to...

Going here is part of the adventure, but guidebooks seems to overreact when it comes to exactly how step and dangerous the car ride up is. In my opinion it is no problems. The road is good and decently wide. You’ll probably be driven up riding one of the 4WD cars from the ticket office so just relax and enjoy... More

We went to this temple from Siem Reap. As we didn´t want to pay for the taxi, the journey took us quite a long time, because of the unsufficient possibilities of public transport. The temple itself is a nice and quiet place, but if you plan the visit, you have to count with following facts: - from Sra'aem city you... More

Preah Vihear temple is on the northern border of the country adjoining Thailand. The temple was unsafe to visit until recently. It was subject to an ownership struggle between Thailand and Cambodia which involved occasional military clashes. An uneasy truce broke out allowing access to tourists. The temple is about 3 hours drive from Siem Reap. The roads are actually... More

Preah Vihear was definitely worth the journey from Siem Reap! With the guidance of Narin, we explored a few temples along the way to break up the drive. The views were authentic, extraordinary and not many tourists venture out this way. Which is nice for photographs, peace and quiet. I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide! He truly... More

This was a great place, as many people have already mentioned, it is beautiful and serene. However it should not be visited at the cost of missing something in the Siem Reap area. If you have 5+ days for temples, it makes sense to visit this one. But if you have only 3 days, stick to Angkor temples around SR

Narin is: a perfect guide a real connoisseur of Cambodian temples (not only Angkor!) a precious way to discover Cambodia in all its aspects a great photographer, he took wonderful, amazing pictures of us. We passed with Narin 2 days; one in Angkor and one towards Preah Vihear (very VIP tour). Narin has a full list of options but he... More

We just got back from a fantastic visit to Prasat Preah Vihear as a long day trip from Siem Reap. It was absolutely worth the drive (about 3 hrs each way) and the cost of transportation, entry ticket ($10 USD for non-Khmer tourists), and ride up the mountain ($5/person for moto or $25 for a ride in the back of...
