Preah Vihear Temple

UNESCO World Heritage site near Siem Reap

Some temples have been re-opened recently including the fabulous Preah Vihear Temple. Well over 100 km north-east of Angkor, on the Thai border, Preah Vihear Temple (or Prasat Phra Viharn) dates from the beginning of the 11th century. It dominates the plain from its prominent position in the Dangrek Mountains at an altitude of more than 700 m and was returned to Cambodia by a ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague in 1963 (it was previously occupied by the Thais).

Also close to the Thai border, just 90 minutes away lies Anlong Veng, used by the Khmer Rouge leaders as their last stronghold and hideout in this remote area. It contains the remains of Pol Pot's house and burial site. The rainy season from May to October complicates visits to these remote areas.
