What people are saying about Phnom Kulen National Park

To see the origin of the Khmer Empire.

It was very interesting getting to know about the Khmer. There is a reclining Buddha which is the first one I have seen. Lots of people there, which was increased because of Chinese New Year. Monks chanting. There where people begging, which is hard to see. You are always told, "don't give beggars money". I didn't, but did make donations in the temple where the monks were doing the blessings. Stalls on either side as you walk up with trinkets. Then we moved to the waterfalls. There wher two of the. People standing underneath them, sitting in the water. I just had a paddle. the origin part was basically to do with the water. Afterwards we stopped for dinner, which was nice. Busy restaurant again mainly because of Chinese New Year. It was a very interesting trip which I would recommend.

A very beautiful place to visit

I absolutely enjoyed this trip! Although it was a 1.5-hour drive one way with the average speed of 30 km/hour on a very bad road, the final destination at the top of the mountain was worth it! There are several spots to visit on the top of the mountain. The guide spoke good English and was quite informative, but I still recommend to read more info on the place before you go. There are lots & lots of souvenir shops up there - outrageously expensive, nothing is less that 3$ so not worth it. But the nature was great and well taken care of. Highly recommend a visit.

Memorable experience and great fun

Our guide was so friendly and professional. The mountain was beautiful and the waterfalls were incredible. Truly a memorable experience. I went on this trip with my mother and she can't stop talking about how much fun she had. Special thanks to our guide for being so friendly and for taking great pictures for us!
