We hired a moped and rode to the temple fromKampot. The first part of the journey was easy, along a surfaced road. However, once we turned off (following a sign to Climbodia), the road became a bumpy, dusty track with no signs to direct us. What I would suggest is, when you come to a fork in the road, ask a local which way to go. It will save you getting lost like we did!
Once we got close to the temple, we were approached by girls at a house/shop and told we had to park our bike there and pay them for ‘security’. That was not the case and we rode a bit further and left our bike by the ‘Police officer’ at the steps up to the temple. However, he charged us a dollar - entrance or parking?
We were again approached by girls from the house offering to be our guide. The Police Officer said it would only cost us a dollar or two, so we hired one of the girls. We were glad that we did. As well as telling us about the temple, rock formations and local farmland, she was able to guide us out a different way - down through the cave complex! We were glad that we had sensible sandals on as it was quite difficult in places, but a great experience, unlike anything we had done before. We tipped the girl $5 at the end as we enjoyed the challenge.
She gave us clear directions to the secret lake which we found without getting lost. We passed some interesting farmland on the way. Then we headed to La Plantation.

Yes, it's old but not, I'm so sorry, not impressed. And a long dusty ride on the bike. If you are into your temples then get out there

I enjoyed seeing this cave and of course we were followed by 4 local girls to be guides. The other girls in my tour group gave them nothing which is abit stingy I gave them just afew thousand riel.. but they are useful for climbing down the cave so I think I should of given more at least a dollar. The cave itself is pretty cool to see. Good photos and easy walk up the stairs and going through the cave down to bottom really isn't that hard.

At first we wondered if we need the local kids as guides but we didn't regret telling them okay: They will not only show you the different rock formations but also lead you into the pitch-black cave so make sure you wear proper shoes and bring a headlamp along!
