The now ruined complex dates back to the Pre-Angkorian Chenla Kingdom (late 6th to 9th century), established by king Isanavarman I as central royal sanctuary and capital, known then as Isanapura.

As part of a 6 day private tour of Cambodia we had a private guide around the temples site. It was a very hot day reaching 37C but walking through the forest it was relatively cool. For anyone who has been to My Son in Vietnam the architecture will be very familiar and will be reminded how extraordinary it is... More

Amazing place to be , easily to found even without your guide. Guides are available ( fluent English) . At all it's a 3km walk around this area to see lots of temples . Pathway is not prepared, so better to take care for the rights shoes. Prices are 3$ without guide .

We came from Kompong Thom from where it is a common trip for tuktuk drivers. The road is good and not unusually bumpy. At the site we met a local young man who charged us $7, which, he said, went to the local organization. Our guide had reasonable English whch he was trying to improve, and seemed to know a... More

We travelled to Sambor Prei Kuk and stayed a night at the wonderful home stay of mr. Teng. Very quiet area with pre-Angkorian temples in the woods. We were accompanied by a guide from the local community (10 dollar). Highly recommended! We stayed for one night at the home stay of mr. Teng (number 7). This was a wonderful experience,... More

This is not the best kept temple, so not Angkor Wat nor the Bayon, but it has two things which make it delightful. The first one is that you may find only a few locals. So you will not find large crowds of national groups with their respective guides. The second is that everything is scattered around a beautifully forested... More

We went there by car from Siam Reap (private driver). The temples's archtecture is completely different from Angkor (much older) and there are very, very few tourists. You can take a guided tour there by a local guide. The entrance fee is just $3 per person.

One of my most cherished highlights in Sambor Prei kuk was our home stay. This is a wonderful way to experience everyday rural life in Cambodia and interact with the beautiful Khmer people. Our host family was delightful, the food was delicious and our shared accomodation was very clean and comfortable.

We (family of 4) had a 1.5 hour stopover here on the way from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh in July 2016. It was a sunny day and extremely hot (my guess: around 32" C). We took a guide to see the temples, who warned us of the risk of dengue fever and recommended that we mosquito repellent. We applied... More
