    I found this small temple very spiritual. The calmness may lead you there too. This 10th century temple is formed for keeping balance among Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. This beauty is made on red sandstone. BTW Tickets required here.

    I did not expect this to be a highlight of my trip to Cambodia. I saw many amazing things in the country, but the APOPO visitor centre made a huge impression. Such innovative and important work for the benefit of Cambodians, and so well presented. Definitely worth an hour of your time if you are in Siem Reap.

    Such a huge variety of art works here to view. Charged a small entrance fee. If you love art you could easily spend a couple of hours here walking around. Little bridges, water, gardens just make this place quite special.

    This was an amazing experience! The amount of art and history is outstanding. The history is so rich. Of course it has been pilfered thru out the history but it still stands. You have to use your imagination to see what it had to look like in the beginning with all the, jewels, stones and figures before it was robbed.

    The food here was delicious and they had a great drinks menu as well. The work New Hope does looks like it really helps the community and assists students with their education and many more things. I hope they can continue their good work.

    We had a great time at Angkor mini golf! We were worried it would be boiling hot as we went in the middle of the day but it’s very shaded and cool. Would definitely recommend, we had a lot of fun and the staff were really friendly! Very reasonably priced and a free beer for a hole in one!

    Really after Angor Wat the other temples look small and often in disrepair. This is a nice small temple with Five towers on one terrace. It is a Hindu temple. It doesn’t take much time to visit and it wasn’t crowded

    As many others have said this temple is well off the beaten track,and the track it is on is quite poor so only small vehicles can get to it,this keeps most of the big tours away making it very quiet and peacefull,very little restoration has been done here so if you like quiet unrestored temples this one is ideal.It is set deep in the middle of the jungle and you can allways hear the gibbonns nearby,and just a slim chance of seeing them,when I was there this Aprin there were lots of mosquitoes so best be prepared.Agreat hidden gem.

    Lots of in depth information and haunting artefacts very well presented in a beautiful respectful peaceful setting in a non-glorified way. An informative, moving and memorable experience. Much respect to the curators, they have done an excellent job with a very difficult exhibit.

    Interesting visit. Admittedly not much to look at as it has seen better days - likely due to Covid-19. Admission is $2 which on retrospect is a good price for what you get. Contains miniature models of 4 Angkor Wat temples which are quite accurate. Makes for some decent photos. Also has an information board on the artist, who survived the Khmer Rouge.
