Having spent 4 months travelling through Russia, Mongolia, China, Japan, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, I can Honestly say this was the whole highlight of the trip. HIdden Cambodia.com brought us to destinations people only dream of when thinking of temples in a jungle. We booked a 2 day trip to Koh Ker, an Angkorian site in northern Cambodia, 100 km northeast of Angkor itself. The trip itself was comforable in a big 4X4 and when we arrived at Koh Ker, we were the only people at the temples except for the security guard asleep outside on his hammock. The temples are covered by forest and jungle and are so quiet and green. Its a wonderful relief from the crowds at Ankgor Wat.
We spent the most enjoyable evening in their house in Koh Ker which overlooks one of the Temples and ate the most finger licking delicious meal, squid with kampot pepper, beef with holy basil, tasty pork, chicken with lemon grass and chillies, amongst other yummy dishes, it was a feast.
The next day we got on motor bikes and took off into the forests to meet some of the people living in the communities. HC have facilitated the insallations of Wells and Water pumps so the women dont have to walk 2 hours to collect dirty water any more. The have made a huge difference to peoples lives! Later we visted a floating community on the Tonle Sap which had JUST been opened up to Hidden Cam. so we were the first people to visit here, stopping off in a temple to hear the buddhas chanting. We visted fish farms, saw the families smoking the fish, all on houses on stilts. It was an amazing two days seeing so many things many people never get to see all their lives.

Sheila and Paul of HC are also great fun and it was a real pleasure to be with them for the few days to share our wonderful experiences.
