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

The journey to Preah Vihaer temple is long (about 3 hours) but well worth it. It's a spectacular series of temples on the top of a mountain. Each temple is different in style as they were built at different times, but beautiful in its own right. It is correct that the temples in Siem Reap are individually more impressive, but... More

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
