The best part of Preah Vihear is the adventure it takes you on. The road from Siem Reap is pretty good now. My route took me on mostly paved roads, and I enjoyed getting out of the urban areas of Phnom Penh and seeing rice paddies and rural life on the drive. I went by personal taxi, which was very...

Probably my favorite temple site in Cambodia and well worth the effort to get there. Some incredible views over the escarpment into both Thailand and back into Cambodia, and the temple itself gets progressively more impressive as you walk further up the hill.

In advance to our travels to Cambodia, we have already heard about this lost temple at the north of Cambodia and it's special setup in comparison to the Angkor temples. When we have been in Siem Reap, we kept looking for a guided tour to this spot, but all of them would have cost like $60-80/person, which was way too... More

Like most reviewers I booked a private car trough my hotel which cost me $120. I started very early at 6:30am and the 3 1/4 hour interesting drive north from Siem Reap went through varied Cambodian rural countryside and one could see how the village people live - many in poor conditions. Near the destination you will see many distinct... More

Do not skip this temple if you are visiting Siem Reap, we spend USD110 on car and USD10/pax for ticket and another USD5/pax on motorcycle that send us up there. And it is totally worth it. A panorama view of Cambodia and Thai border up there is just beautiful, the architecture of this temple is different from all the site... More

To get to this temple you have to take a jeep or motor bike; we opted for bikes, which is not for the faint hearted !! The last part was VERY steep but amazing fun. The temple itself is impressive as much for the area it covers as for the ruins themselves. Unfortunately the weather was hazy, otherwise there would... More

Unfortunately, some parts of the temple were destroyed by Thai war when Thai armies was trying to take control over the temple and wanted to claim that the temple was part of their national heritage. Later, Cambodia sued to the international court... More
