We went to Chau Srei Vibol by tuktuk and it took around an hour to arrive. Chau Srei Vibol is a large site. It is in a ruined state but it is impressive. It is worth making the effort to visit it. You will most probably see a local man at the entrance who would want to show you the... More

I went this afternoon via tuk tuk, even my driver hadn't been there before but the journey is made easier by improved roads and the locals were amused at being asked directions! The first thing you see is a badly ruined and leaning border wall and one thinks, 'is that it?' Fortunately its not so continue along the narrow pathway... More

If you like to escape form the mass tours, take a transport to Chaw Srei Vibol Temple. This temple is nearly broken apart and stands there in his last beauty. Nature is taking back this place and brings a special beauty and soul to this hidden place. Even during high season, you won't find many tourists there.

We went to Chau Srei Vibol with the Sabai cycle tours and it is an absolutely stunning temple and the best was we had it for ourselves. At the temple is also a nice little Pagoda with the monks and playing kids!

Chau Srei Vibol is definitely worth a visit, even though I must admit it is easier to do in a car than in a tuktuk. The school nearby is an attraction itself, with scores of playing children jumping each other to get their picture taken.

Chau Srei Vibol is temple not frequented by tourists. It is located in an area between Phnom Bok to the north and the Roluos Group to the south. Disclaimer: I went there by tuktuk and my tuktuk driver knew the way to the temple. He also knows his way around the site, especially going to the center of Chau Srei... More

Went to this temple with a guided tour. Sabai Moto Adventures, otherwise its very hard to get there. heard of some tourists that not even the tuk tuk drivers knew there it is. If you get a chance to go there, definitely do it! there are hardly any tourists and this temple is really like a hidden treasure!
