Frankly speaking, I was targeting PHNOM KROM eversince I was 1st planning for my solo trip. I was hoping for SUNRISE & SUNSET on the hill. But due to circumstances, I had to set only for SUNSET. 1st thing to admit that we must do...More

Arrived like 5 mins after the sunset - so didn’t really see it. Not many tourists.... only 2-3 small groups when i was there. It was a bit of a climb up - so, factor that in mind when you go there. Could have cleared...More

My husband and I made a last minute decision to visit Phnom Krom. It is a longer hike to the top than we expected and we almost missed the sunset. Our suggestion is to leave your Siem Reap hotel about 2 hours before sunset so...More

More temples but this time they are in a quiet forest park area, that the locals use for picnics etc. The main temple is the one with the lion statues on either side at the front entrance. Went in and bought some incense sticks and...More

One of the most scenic places. On a high level hence a great view point to the floating villages and the beautiful houses on the valley. A great place to walk up the hill with friends, barbecue and biking. Great for photos and video shoots!...More

The tuk tuk ride to the temple is really great. The little villages and rice and lotus farms are interesting. Once you reach the temple location you need to climb! The first set of stairs you will encounter are steep - there are 151 stairs....More

The hill is very rocky; local legend has it that the rocks were exposed by the monkey general Hanuman during a hunt for medicine in the Ramayana epic. The area beyond the temple’s west gate affords a spectacular view of the Tonle Sap Lake. The...More

I bicycled there, along the river road, saw lots of communities, had a cold drink from some kids. Climbing the steps is good exercise. If you don't have a valid Angkor ticket, you can pay $5 to continue up the steep hill to the ruins...More

Ride a bike. I think 25min max. But the road is not so good, some more after sunset there is almost no street light to light up the roadside. Be careful. Take care
