Description: This full day tour provides you with a unique visit to the ancient Hindu temple of Preah Vihear. This temple is very impressive as it sits on a 525m high cliff. From the peak you will have amazing views towards the border of Thailand. The temple area runs around 800m from north to south and since 2008 has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Your driver will pick you up from your accommodation at 7am.
You will then go directly to Preah Vihear temple with the opportunity to stop for cold drinks and photos on the way if you wish. You will travel with our driver through the Cambodian countryside for around 3.5 hours before reaching the base of the temple. There are many beautiful landscapes and views on the way, so be sure to tell the driver if you'd like to stop for some photos.
You will have approximately 3 hours to spend exploring Preah Vihear which is plenty of time to see every part of the temple area. Preah Vihear temple sits on a very high cliff and is only accessible by a very steep road. Because of this you are required to transfer to a motorbike or modified truck for the final climb to the summit.
There are plenty of places to buy cold drinks and snacks close to the ticket office, as well as a few small local restaurants for lunch. Your driver will bring you back to your hotel by the evening.
All itinerary's are flexible and can be customized. Just contact us! Want to make this into a full day tour? How about combining Preah Vihear with some other places or with an overnight stay? See our package tours.
