    It is different than other temples of Angkor Wat.
    Situated little away from the main temples but can be reached by tuk tuk also. Its 30-40 min hike from the place where vehicle will drop . No water available during the hike so get your own water,even on top when I reached no option to buy drinks or snacks,saw a small shop but no one was there.
    There are thousand shiv linga carved on river bed,when there is good flow of water during rainy season linga submerge in water ,I was there during dry season so was lucky to see.
    During rainy season hike may not be easy so confirm from locals then only plan.

    Our visit to the Angkor Botanical Garden in Siem Reap was absolutely delightful, making it our favorite stop alongside the Lotus Silk Farm. The garden is a beautifully laid-out oasis, showcasing an exceptional variety of plants. It was not only visually stunning but also educational, offering insights into the local flora. We enjoyed a lovely spot to relax and savor refreshments amidst the greenery. The serene atmosphere and well-maintained paths made for a perfect day out. Highly recommend this hidden gem for anyone visiting Siem Reap!

    What an amazing morning spent with these magnificent elephants and the lovely young men who care for them. My teen son and I were thrilled to visit this sanctuary, and the hands on experience feels very respectful of the beautiful animals. This is definitely a trip to prioritise near Siem Reap. Be prepared to get messy - it is a delight and a great privilege to share the morning.

    A great scenic view of the waterfall but unfortunately the timing of our visit to this place happens to be during the dry season, otherwise I’m sure the scene at the waterfall would be much better.

    We witness a lot of local families spending the time picnic and dipping themselves in the cool refreshing waterfall.

    We loved the butterfly 🦋 paradise. There was lots of different animals and places to relax 🧘‍♀️ e.g their was hammocks in the middle of the butterfly 🦋 paradise. There was an air conditioned cinema about the butterflies. There is also a lab 🧪 all where you can see chrysalis inside the lab 🧪! At the end you can see a massive breeding of butterflies 🦋 it was beautiful 😍. By Elsie age 9 ( maz's daughter)

    Srah Srang is the name of the lake which I understand is also called the Royal Baths. We went to the terrace to view it. The terrace was built for the Royal barge. Probably takes 15 minutes to view

    It was our first visit to water bird sanctuary anywhere and we were very excited but things didnot went as per the plan. But before going into detail, want to update few things:-

    a) This is a quite remote place to visit and there is no comfortable source of travelling available to reach here

    b) You will start very early in the morning and reach one of the river docks, our route was all countryside and with almost zero roads, so it can be a bumpy ride in middle of no where

    c) Post reaching dock, you will get into a boat which will take you to Prek Toral floating village. This boat is common motor boat and completely open so you might feel cold as its early in morning with wind coming at you at super speed, so do carry some jacket

    d) Once you reach village, your guide will give you some knowledge of area.

    Above all is for guidance for others and not issues.

    Now issues I had:-

    a) Language, she was just speaking with 50% things going above my head and i tried to check couple of times but accent is big problem. Still its not a big problem

    b) We started journey to bird sanctuary in a kind of a local jet boat which create noise may be more louder than an airplane. This was the most terrifying part of our journey. How can we have such loud motor boats in natural reserves??

    c) Boat driver and guide were just driving and driving and I had to shout among this loudiest boat to stop so that I can take few pics

    Also there is a big man made bamboo/wood watch tower and you can climb it you want. It gives a good bird eye view of area but not necessarily view of birds

    I was expecting a more calmer and trip with naturalist which will guide slowly and let us enjoy and capture nature.

    Overall was able to take some good pics but nothing outstanding. It gave me more headache then pleasure.

    Cambodia government in collaboration with locals need to treat this area with more care and love. Naturalists need to be more trained in accent so that foreigners can understand things better. Lot of things to be done here

    Exceeded expectations. The aquarium at the beginning was excellent! Compact and a great stop off on the way to the new international airport. Really enjoyed it!

    The locals go here
    To swim and just take it lightly, the water is as it is but it is good to swim in
    You can lie in a hammock with a cold drink and do nothing at all for a couple of hours

    Aside from the expected natural beauty, the highlights of the tour are the Pagoda with the sleeping Buddha, the traditional village, the waterfall and the riverbed carved with a thousand lingas. Along the way you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the tropical forest.

    The waterfall has two levels and the lower level has a bigger drop and is more fun. Don't forget to pack your swimming gear - the water is cool and inviting especially in hot weather.

    The place is also historical as this is where the Khmer empire was proclaimed over a thousand years ago. You need to start early as the road to the mountain is one-way only - you can go to the top in only the morning and return in the afternoon. And you need a car, van or bike to go up. Tuk-tuks cannot make the steep grade. The drive is a bit bumpy but offers scenic views. Needless to say, the waterfall is more fun in the rainy season.

    It is 30 minute drive from Siem Reap and then a short and steep walk up to the top. The temples itself are not very impressive after visiting Angkor Wat. But if offers stunning views over the nearby villages and the surrounding wetlands of Tonle Sap. You should come here to see the sunset! As the entry fee is already included within the Angkor Pass, it is a good half-day option to calm down after exhausting days in Angkor.

    We spent an hour here as a day off from temples and it was loads of fun. The course is very kitch but in the best possible way. $5 per person for 14 holes, and a $5 return tuk tuk trip from town, which they organise for you.

    There’s more shade than it appears in the photos.

    Aim for a hole in one and claim your free beer!

    Tranquil area, lots of statues and places to sit.
    You have to Google information or use a translate app.
    No one disturbs your visit, there are several entrances and exits.
