In the capable hands of Ratanak, the best private tour guide in Siem Reap, he drove me to this wonder of the world and its fabulous isolated location. The temple was amazing and with so few tourists Ratanak,with his expert knowledge, was able to to guide me through... More

By researching in tripadvisor, I came across angkornarin@yahoo.com that can bring me to visit Preah Vihear, UNESCO site. Narin is GENUINE and very helpful. He introduced me to another guy so that we can travel together and save cost. The whole trip was tiring because it takes whole day and a lot of walking. However, it is really adventurous and...

There are no crowds and so peaceful and views from the top to Cambodia and Thailand. I can't recommend our tour guide and driver Rob Rath (Rony) enough he took care of every detail for us, tickets, drivers rest room stops, food, souvenirs, he stopped at interesting things via route Tomak's house used during Pol Pot Regime and other smaller...

Preah Vihear is near the border with Thailand and has been contested between the two countries in the past. It's older than Angkor Wat, though not as impressive. Preah Vihear is on a mountain top. To get there you drive to the base, and then pay for a 4WD truck to take you up the mountain--there's no way a car... More

Well worth the drive from Siem Reap. Stop at the ticket office at the base of the mountain.Two options motorbike for 5 US or pickup for 25 US. About a five kilometres climb, quiet steep in parts enough for the driver to engage low gear. Very casual relaxed atmosphere considering its recent history of armed conflict with Thailand. Plenty of... More

By far the most spectacular place I've ever visited. The drive up the mountain is harrowing and when you've driven all the way, there's still a way to go. The views are incredible and a great guide will tell you the history of the still disputed place. Our guide was a Cambodian Policeman, so knowledgeable and eager to share his... More

The temple of Preah Vihear is a World Heritage Site which sits on the very precipice which is the border between Cambodia & Thailand. The architectural & engineering accomplishment of the Khmer people to build this in the early 9th century is quite unbelievable. The temple sits at the peak of Cambodia's highest mountain & to arrive at the top... More

The Temple is in Preah Vihear Province, quite fare from Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. From the Preah Vihear town you will have to drive another 80km to the foot of the mountain where locate the Temple.
