I got a lot out of my day out at Kulen - I'm always curious about what domestic tourists do for fun. Internal Cambodian tourists from other provinces were a comparatively large proportion of the people I saw at Kulen - especially compared to other attractions in the greater Siem Reap area. The difficult road and higher cost for foreigners... More

The nearby Buddha temple is very interesting and worth a visit but the waterfalls are busy with tourists and sellers of touristy stuff so it's not worth the effort of descending the steps to see, particularly as there is so much litter.

Getting there is all the problem. The mountain is 90 minutes away fro Siem Reap on very good roads. The last 10KM on the mountain is pure hell. The road is so full of potholes that you have to creep up and are bounced all over the place. If you have a queasy stomach use your seasick patch. The reclining... More

I visited this as a day tour from Siem Reap. Mr. Chandra Bunnarith (c.bunnarith@hotmail.com), whom I met at the Angkor museum, picked me up at 6 AM and we went to the Kulen Mountain on his motorcycle ($30 + $20 entrance ticket). At the Reclining Buddha, I negotiated with a local guide (Sok Chea) and hired him for $12 to... More

This national park is a must visit on a trip to Cambodia. The walk into the park is stunning, with plenty of wildlife to spot along the way, and great to come across temples, wooden shack type stalls, private homes all suddenly appear! The waterfall is stunning and well worth a dip in the pools at the bottom. Lovely places... More

Total waste of time and money if you are a foreigner. It is $20pp and the cost to get to the waterfall from Pub Street was $80. It is definitely not worth the money. To see the Big Buddha children followed us and wanted us to pay them to watch our shoes since you could not walk up the stairs... More

Its a very imp religious place for local Buddhist, but nothing great from tourist perspective. 1000 shiv-lings.good historical landmark and gives glimpses of past. i enjoyed water in... More

This is a wonderful National Park. Recommend you take comfortable walking shoes but most of all give yourself time.
