The drive is about two hours from Siem reap. The roads leading up to the temple with the Buda lying is quite bumpy, as it is a dirt track. When you approach the temple or you are ambushed by lots of children who are begging for money. It is in courage not to give them money because it will encourage... More

The day our family of four visited Phnom Kulen National Park was my favorite day of the ten days in Cambodia. Our guide, Yous Sopanha, brought a large bag of bread and we stopped in a mountain village on our way to the park to hand out the bread. The village kids were so happy and seemed grateful to receive... More

Visited reclining buddha too many people begging and so much litter around park. Visited 1000 linga nice but again so much litter around really depressing to... More

We took a private car to go for this two hour journey. The entrance ticket costs $20 and we bought it in Siem Reap. We brought along our slippers, towels, drinking water, plastic bags and swimming wears. The first place we visited was the reclining Buddha. Climbing up the staircase to get to the temple, we saw locals sitting on... More

We had a day and we didn't really know what to do so we book this tour with agent. You cannot go there by tuk tuk as tgis is too far. It costed us $35 per person including the $20 for the entry into the National Park. We saw the 1000 lingas in the river, then we went to see... More

We visited the temple and the waterfalls on a Saturday and it was extremely crowded. The drive from Siem Reap is about 2 hours. You do need a car to go up the steep track-like final section as tuk-tuk aren't allowed. I think it's possible to ride a bike but it'd better be powerful enough to take you to to... More

We got a driver to drive us to this National Park which took about 2hr from Siem Reap City. On the way there in the mountain, you'll see that the locals are selling red bananas. My guide told me that they are a little sour than normal bananas. First stop was at the reclining Buddha. You'll have to take off... More

I hired a driver to take me & a friend from Siem Reap up to Kulen Mountain, around 1.5 hours drive from Siem Reap through lovely verdant rural scenery. We first headed up to the mountain top to climb the steps to see the huge reclining Buddha carved out of the natural rock. It was great to be there without... More

This place is cleansing and worth the visit. Unfortunate us humans have visited and left our mark. The locals are very welcoming and they also want to ensure the day out with family near the "Holy Water" Best to hire a local guide + van/car and take the whole day to ensure the country side! Negotiate the costs as it... More

The road to Phnom Kulen is a bit treacherous when you're driving but the waterfalls and surrounding areas are great places to visit on the weekends in Siem Reap! Recommended for cooling down and connecting with nature!
