I liked the waterfall, big Buddha statue, and lookout. Guide was friendly and good. The price may have been a bit high as a friend has done a different Phnom Kulen tour for a lower price.

There were only 3 of us on the tour so it was really nice. The guide showed us everything in our own time and made it very interesting.
