I was determined to get to Preah Vihear after friends recommendations and online research. As a solo budget traveller, I couldn't do what many seemed to with hiring a private driver, so I did it the cheap/quick/dirty way - which was an adventure in itself. I booked a bus ($11) to Sra Em from Siem Reap the night before at... More

Stayed in Sra Em and went here in the morning before heading onto Siem Reap. Be aware that voluntary contributions have been replaced with a fixed price and it is quite expensive to get there. It is worth it however. Despite the unprotected location the ruins are still in a decent state especially considering their age. I was left in... More

Visited here on a day trip from Siem Reap. This is an amazing temple site given its setting on a cliff on the Cambodia/Thai border. A long drive from Siem Reap to get here but well worth it. You take a moto or pickup to get up the last very steep part, and then you are up in the cloud... More

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.

Starting to crumble & care needed when walking thru but still can be appreciated along with the surroundings

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
