Go for the waterfall! The rest can be passed on...

The waterfall is really great. You can swim in the pool, get massaged from the streaming water and be naturally pedicured by the fish. It's simple and perfect. Take the stairs... read more

The waterfall is really great. You can swim in the pool, get massaged from the streaming water and be naturally pedicured by the fish. It's simple and perfect. Take the stairs to the left if the stream to get to the pool. They're easy enough. The 1000 lingas was just a stream with some carvings, nothing to really see. The... More

It has the smallest pagoda with the least impressive reclining buddha i have ever seen (compared with thailand, malaysia, singapore). The site is sacred to the locals but a 2 minute temple visit doesnt warrant the 90 minute drive to get there :) The carvings of 1000 lingas in the water and the reclining vishnu are ok but nothing compared...

This is first time in Kulen, It is really good place. I am interesting with the big Buddha on the top . More interesting is Water fall and Linga 1,000. The lower waterfall gives an opportunity to swim, climb, and play in the waterfall. The little fish nibble, but do not bite - which is kind of fun. All of... More

This is a well worthwhile day trip from Siem Reap. The trip out there takes about 2 hours each way, with the last 45 minutes being on the back of a motorbike. The ride gives you a great opportunity to see rural Cambodia, and how a lot of people live. Some of the ingenious transport you see on the road... More

To visit the reclining Buddha and shines, then cleanse myself under the waterfalls was truly life changing for me. The history of the Lingas & understanding what that mountaintop and water has meant to that culture touched my heart. It changed me! What a great place!

There are 3 main 'activities' here: the Thousand Lingas in the river, the wat and the waterfall. The entrance fee is about US$20 (it's not included in the Angkor Pass) and it's too far, and too steep, for a tuk tuk so you'll need to hire a car and driver. The road is supposed to be one-way up before 11am... More

Coolest spot in or near Siem Reap. Top spot for families and a cool swim. Bit of a way out of Siem Reap but worth the $20 per adult and the bumpy 1hr car ride.

Fantastic location to visit in Siem Reap. Hire a bike/scooter if you can to make this one of the best days out in the area. The waterfall is a great place to cool off - make sure you walk down to the big waterfall at he base of the steps. There's a mesmerizing fresh water pool that bubbles up through... More
