This place is certainly worth the long trip from siem reap, to make the trip alittle more interesting take a Moto up the final stages and begin to enjoy the incredible views. The temple itself is bigger than I imagined and as you would imagine pretty ruined, to be honest there are better looking temples within the Angkor complex however... More

We were the only westerners there. This temple is lovely (although a bit in ruins). There are still monks praying there, and the views are amazing. Our guide was Narin (from Siem Reap), and I recommend STRONGLY that you hire him.

My parents and I visited Preah Vihear Temple in Feb 2015. The temples are very beautiful, there are a number of very fine carvings. The scenery is amazing, at the top of a cliff. It's definitely worth the drive from/to Siem Reap. We spent one night in a hotel a few kilometers from the temple. We went there with our... More

The scenery over there are extremely wonderful with the unique temple style Preah Vihear. When i reached there the environment around the temple it was very good actually and... More

Yesterday 19th feb I did this day tour to the temple. Was picked up from the hotel, and joined the group. First impression was , it didn't looked organised, as the driver kept having to stop for this or that. Also the constant spitting of the driver out the window as he was driving through town.

It is amazingly well worth the drive of approx 200km or 3.5 hrs. We left Siemreab at 7:20 and back by 4:30. I didn't have time to see anything else but there are many other sites to see on the way. Preah Vihear's carving is similar to that of Banteay Srei. There is very little tourists and you don't have... More
