Welcome to Preah Vihear Province


Preah Vihear Province is genuine ‘outback’ Cambodia and remains desperately poor – partly because many areas were under Khmer Rouge control until 1998, and partly because until recently its transport infrastructure was in a catastrophic state. The needs of the Cambodian army in its confrontation with Thailand have expedited dramatic road upgrades in the province, making travel more straightforward, although public transport is still in short supply on some routes.

Siem Reap - Full day private tour at Beng Mealea, Koh Ker & Preah Vihear

Explore the temple ruins located in Siem Reap Province, most within the boundaries of the Angkor Archaeological Park near Siem Reap City, and other ruins located in nearby provinces like Preah Vihear Province at the northwest of Siem Reap, together with Beng Mealea, Koh Ker, and Preah Vihear temples. Your first stop will be at Beng Mealea, a sprawling jungle temple covering over one square kilometre. The temple is largely overrun by vegetation and has very few tourists, giving it an adventurous, ‘Lost Temple' or 'Indiana Jones’ feel. It predates and may have served as a prototype for Angkor Wat. Beng Mealea was at the crossroads of several major highways that ran to Angkor, Koh Ker, and Preah Vihear (in northern Cambodia). For your second stop, we will bring you to Koh Ker, a road loop around the bay beyond the most important temples. The premier ruin of the complex is Prasat Thom, an imposing 7-tiered pyramid and temple complex. (Best photographed in the morning and offering a bird’s eye view from the top). As you go around the loop, there are several nicely preserved ruins just off the road, impressive prasats, and small temple complexes. After a short trekking at the 7-tiered pyramid, replenish your energy by indulging in some of Cambodia’s delicacies mixed with western inspired dishes at a restaurant situated on the premises of Koh Ker. After lunch, we will be heading to your third and last stop, The Preah Vihear, which has unique ruins with a spectacular view of the Cambodian plain. It is situated on the edge of a plateau that dominates the plain of Cambodia. The Temple of Preah Vihear is dedicated to Shiva. The Temple is composed of a series of sanctuaries linked by a system of pavement and staircases. After the day of adventure and discovery, you can choose to be taken back to the city and dropp off at your original pick up place, or you can add an option of witnessing the known Apsara dinner dance show or a treat yourself to a relaxing 60 minute body massage to end the day.

A former capital of the Khmer Empire, the site is now remote and heavily forested. The main structure, Koh Ker Temple, is a stepped 7-tiered pyramid. The large rectangular tank, Rahal Baray, supplied water to the complex. The Prasat Krahom, meaning "red temple," is known for its sandstone carvings, while Prasat Pram is covered in strangler figs. This temple is a remote archaeological site in northern Cambodia about 123 kilometres away from Siem Reap and the ancient site of Angkor and it take time about two and half hours away from Siem Reap, and basic visitors' facilities are now being built. This makes Koh Ker very attractive for anyone who would like to experience lonely temples partly overgrown by the forest.

Preah Vihear & Beng Mealea Private Tour

The day starts with an early morning pick-up from your hotel at 6:00am (or later if preferred).We travel to Preah Vihear, a UNESCO heritage temple located three hours to the north of Siem Reap. At the top of a long staircase, this is an outstanding masterpiece of Khmer architecture and a completely unique temple to visit. Its remote location has kept it extremely well-preserved and means you’re likely to have the temple to yourself to walk through the complex and admire the views of the sprawling valley below.After lunch at a local restaurant we step back in time at Beng Mealea. A sprawling jungle temple covering just over one kilometer, Beng Mealea is largely overrun by vegetation and not overly visited due to its remote location, the temple gives off an adventurous ‘lost temple’ vibe as you explore the piles of stones from its towers and courtyards, hidden amidst the thriving bush. We then head off for Koh Kei, a hidden temple with a unique pyramidal shape whose climb rewards visitors with panoramic views. After ample time to explore we head back to Siem Reap where you are delivered to your hotel.
