These temples were surrounded by dry forests when we stopped off en route on a tour from Phnom Penh to Siam Reap. Our guide said she only went there infrequently so it is not a tourist magnet. A good introduction to the temples at Angkor, but earlier and on a different scale. There are 3 main temples to see -... More

That Temple was built in the ancient time, the curve on the wall really appreciated that was done by the former of Khmer Empire king.

The temples are about an hour outside Kompong Thom by tuk tuk, but definitely worth a visit. We had a local guide called T who showed us round and described the temples. His self taught English was amazing. We didn't see anyone else apart from some locals whilst we were there, nice change from Angkor.

The temple are ruins as there are built way earlier before Angkor Wat but remains untouched. Only certain area now received restoration but still in progress. It took 1 hour... More

We visited Sambor Prei Kuk before heading to Siem Reap. The site is starting to get maintenance, and friendly guides await at the entrance of the site to show you around. I would definitely advice you to work with a local guide (US$6 for an hour and a half). The temples are mostly destroyed, except for 6 buildings that still... More

The temples are spread out in a jungle area and have far fewer tourists than one will find around Siem Reap. Our guide was knowledgeable and was a good communicator.Beware of the monkeys; they like to grab something (sunglasses or camera) if given the opportunity.
