Beng Mealea was a trip I wouldn't miss. I visited the temple with Cambodian friends. We went there from Siem Reap and enjoyed the roadside leading to this temple. It was an adventure in discovery not just for me but for my Cambodian friends who...More

Really amazed from khmer culture and all the temple structures.. But this one is very loved one because its not so touristic and has a great setting.. Prepare for walking and become part of this lost civilization.. Respect..
