The new world heritage of Cambodia located along the Cambodia and Thailand border. The peaceful windy temple on the top of Dang Rek mountain, but the road to go up to temple structure is very steep. Recommend you to hire pickup rather then moto bike if you plan to preach vihear temple.

I received a personal guided tour from San over the course of 2 days to several temples. He was always on time and his car was very clean. He was very laid back and offered to take us anywhere we wanted. He went above and beyond what I expected in a tour guide. San's customer service was spectacular and he showed us many things that most tourists probably never see. He has great knowledge of Siem Riep.

I would highly recommend contacting San for a tour of Siem Riep and all of the temples. Thanks San!

The temple located on teh border between Cambodia and Thailand was a dispute between this countries for long time. In 2013 the UN decided that it's on the territory of Cambodia, If you want to visit it from Siem Reap you need to leave the city NLT 06 AM because it's a drive from +/- 4,5 hours, Privat car cost you araund 120 US$. With bus +/- 50 US$ but the last 30 minutes you need to take a private car or motobike (price: ?). To go up to the hill you can choose between motobike (10 US) or 4x4 car (25 US$ for the car). If you have time you can bombine this trip with a visit to Koh Ker and Bang Maleah on the way back but than you need to stay overnight. For the most courageous among us: there is a panoramic vieuw but it's +/- 2.200 steps uphill.

This is a place that even most Khmers have not visited. Many governments recommend that you not visit because of the tensions over its status but I did not feel any danger. To be sure, the Cambodian army and police are on site and constantly watching the Thai border but no shots have been fired since 2008. The bigger danger is from the ruins themselves which are mostly in unimproved condition.

I made it a day trip from Siem Reap. Taxi hire was $100 which took me to the bottom of the hill. From there I hired a motorcycle ($5) for the short (but very steep) trip up to the temple area. Unlike the better known temples, there are no vendors pestering you and the whole site is very peaceful. Bring water and other supplies you may need. Contrary to the advice in guidebooks, it is not possible to cross the Thai border near here.

Great view, loved the dug in soldiers all around the site too, bring your own machine gun! Crazy moto ride from the parking lot, I hired a taxi to take me here from Angkor, spilt the fare with a crazy German guy.
