If you need a break from temples, take a day trip to Phnom (mountain) Kulen, which is not quite a mountain. You'll find a spectacular waterfall, a river that runs on top of 1000 lingams (phallic sculptures symbolizing the Hindu god Shiva--carved to increase fertility). You'll also find massive rock-cut elephant and lions statues in the middle of the jungle,... More

This is a worthy day trip from Phnom Penh -- but needs to be packaged with other destinations depending on your interests. The falls is beautiful -- and there are pre-Angkor ruins above the falls, and a major Buddhist retreat across the bridge from the falls cut-off that is worth seeing. Make sure you see the river "lingas" -- sacred... More

With part of our holiday in Siem Reap in October, I was introduced by Kamsan Sreng, our local tour guide, to visit this site. We began the trip in early morning so while we arrived at the waterfall, there was no people at all so we could swim in a natural swimming pool just with our family (me, my wife,... More

Phnom Klein is a very bumpy two hour ride away. It will take up a day you could spend exploring Angkor. The only tourists we really saw there were other Indians like us who had come to see thousand lingas carved in the water with a sleeping Vishnu. For me, it was not worth the 20 dollar fee (phnom kulen... More

had such a great time here. The views are amazing and the water is refreshing. You can rent life jackets, towels , etc... but make sure to bring a swimsuite so you can take a dip in the beautiful water. So many things to see along the way. At the upper waterfall you can see some overgrown temples which make... More

After a few days of the usual jaunts to the temples, I would definitely recommend a day trip by scooter/car to this National Park. The trip there (if you can get your moto/car guide/driver) partly amongst the villages on dirt roads was so refreshing. The colours, the villagers, the landscapes is undeniably Asia and colourful...even for someone who grew up... More

Not very far from Ankor Watt (Siem Reap) this area is famous only for local. However, great to go and get some Cambodia and Buddhist experience inside of the mountainous and thick forest. You can book some traditional camp along the beautiful creek and order food from nearby local restaurant. Swim in the creek as well as under the beautiful... More

Beautiful waterfall after 2 hours on the bus out from Siem Reap. After the short walk down from the parking area we were greated with a beautiful waterfall, which we had to our selves since it was raining when we got there. The water was cool and the rubber tyres ($1) made the experiance more fun. Swimming under the waterfall... More
