  • I had researched volunteer activities and sustainable tourism in Cambodia when a charity recommended I visit Banteay Chchmar. If you want to get away from the big cities and experience rural Cambodia ...  more »
  • There were no tourists when I went there. The last time I visited was only one tourist two days ago, and there are almost no locals. Pay $5 admission fee and go a little further, chumar is also the name of the ruins on the right. There are ruins in the shape of a cat. If you go further, you'll find the main hall in Japan? There is a main body part. Because this site is near the Thai border, it is not destroyed by nature, but is the site where many parts were artificially destroyed by the attack from Thailand. There are many parts that have collapsed, but as mentioned above, there are few tourists, so i was impressed that there were many parts of the sculpture that remained clearly because i didn't touch the sculpture smuch, such as Angkor Wat. As the previous one has written, i think that the dry season is better because the feet are not so good in the repair, but the rainy season that I went to was beautiful because i can see the greenish sculpture by moss as well as Benmelia and the like. However, the feet are quite dangerous. There were only a few stalls in the area. Because it is separated from Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, it seems that the dollar is not in circulation so much, and the dollar is only beautiful. It is good to take a riel or a beautiful dollar bill because it is returned when it is dirty. You might be able to use Thai baht? I was told, but I do not know the details.
