Kbal Spean is an ancient Khmer site in Phnom Kulen National Park, a remote place located at considerable distance from Siem Reap and the main Angkor monuments. The site stretches out over a length of about 150 meters through the jungle along the Stung Kbal Spean river, known as the “river of a thousand lingas”.

Located a few hundred meters North of the Phimeanakas set in a peaceful jungle environment is the Preah Palilay, a Buddhist temple oriented towards the East.

Prasat Kravan is an early 10th century Hindu monument. It consists of a line of five brick towers built closely together set atop a low platform oriented towards the East.

Within the Royal Palace compound is the extravagant Silver Pagoda, the floor of which is covered with five tons of gleaming silver. You can sneak a peek at some of the 5000 tiles near the entrance – most are covered to protect them.

The most impressive and best preserved of the Khmer temples is the one that gave the whole complex its name: Angkor Wat, the beautiful apotheosis of Khmer architecture, and the world’s largest religious monument.

A few days on Bamboo Island, off Sihanoukville’s coast, comes highly recommended. The boat ride takes about half an hour and once there you will find that only about 30 people live on the island.

Bokor Hill Station is a part of a French ghost tow. It sits on the top of a mountain in Preah Monivong National Park.
