Holiday packages to Preah Vihear Temple

See a different side of Cambodia as you venture away from Siem Reap to the enormous temple complex of Preah Vihear. Discover and explore the ancient structure from the 11th century and marvel at its fascinating architecture. Delight a savoury lunch before further stretch of the sanctuary complex. The temple bears the scars of Cambodia’s ravaged past and was damaged again in 2011 during skirmishes linked to the long-running border dispute with Thailand. Today a tourist spot, this temple was handed to Thailand by the French in 1954 and returned to Cambodia in 1962 following an international court ruling. Both countries still claim the territory in the immediate proximity of the temple. It was given World Heritage status in 2008 by UNESCO. The surrounding hillsides were massively mined during the Pol Pot period and the subsequent Vietnamese occupation of Cambodia and it is important not to stray from well-marked paths. However, the temple area itself is perfectly safe and a new road up the mountain on the Cambodian side has undoubtedly improved the quality of access.
