This cave is pretty nice, though honestly not as stunning as some other caves I've seen in South East Asia. To get here you have to drive through sparkling-green paddies and picturesque villages, which is a lot of fun in its own right. The cave...More

This is not an easy place to find, and even when you're almost there, things can be confusing. Our GPS helped a little, but the area is swarming with people that want to "help" you find the caves for a fee. When you get there...More

We were a group of 6 and got here on rented vespas. It was a bumpy road, but the views around the road were worth it. We loved the cave, which size exceeded our expectations. Would recommend to combine this trip with a visit at...More

Talk about huffing and puffing. The guide takes you to the entrance. He did warn me about how many steps we had to go up just to reach the entrance. He was right. A must see if you go to Kampot or Kep

As the title says it, very touristic. Better off just touring the country side. Rent scooters and enjoy the views, the villages and not so touristic places

The idea of an ancient brick temple inside a limestone cave was very appealing to me, so I had long wanted to see this place. But last time I came to Kampot I had ended up nearby Kbal Romeas instead. Therefore, I was determined to...More

Well, on the one hand we would definitely prefere the kids to be at school. On the other hand, as they are already there and fortunately not just asking money but coming with you and guiding, you could just go with the flow. The temple...More

The cave itself is beautiful to see, the stairs leading to it are nice by its own. But the best part was coming down from the cave - climbing inside the hill, lead by a 15 yearold local girl, who knew the way even though...More
