Beng Mealea, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Beng Mealea is situated approximately 70 kilometers from Siem Reap. The shortest route to the temple is found by heading north at the town of Dam Dek, located around 40 kilometers from Siem Reap, traveling in the direction of Phnom Penh. Arranging a vehicle and driver from Siem Reap is recommended.

Featured Private Angkor Wat Tours, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Bantey Srei And Beng Mealea
I selected a solo tour because I didn't want to be rushed when exploring the temples. The guide was very considerate of my needs and went at my pace. After two of the more popular temples I requested that we go to temples with fewer tourists, because I wanted to take pictures without other tourists in them. The guide agreed, and our last two temples were wonderful - hardly any people. After 4 sites, I wilted and headed back to the hotel. I would recommend this tour.
We would strongly recommend the tour

Beng Mealea, Banteay Srei & Roulous Group
The tour was more than we expected. We had a great time with a guide who has amazing knowledge and hospitality. We questioned a lot about those temples and back ground history, but he answered all of them and made us more interested in Cambodia. We would like to appreciate to our guide and also to the driver. They made our trip impressive and satisfying. This opportunity leads us to have interest in Cambodia and its history more than before. Thank you so much.

2-Days Private Tour Discovery Angkor Wat , Waterfall and Beng Mealea Temple
Very worth it. The only recommendation I would make is a return visit to Angkor Wat at sunset. We arrived a Angkor Wat about 1 hour before sunrise. It was wonderful to see it slowly come into view. But, you should also see Angkor Wat at sunset.

Private Tour to Beng Mealea Jungle Temple and Koh Ker
This was a very interesting tour with very few tourists so very easy to get good photos. No renovation has taken place so interesting to see how the jungle has taken over with trees acting like scaffolding to hold the buildings up. Our guide, Sopheak, spoke excellent English and his Toyota 4x4 was very comfortable with lots of legroom and very clean. He was also very prompt and picked us up from our hotel. It was a long day as it was 100 Kms outside Siem Reap near the Thai border but we covered a lot of temples. We also stopped on the roadside and watched local women preparing sticky rice in bamboo tubes, we bought some for a snack later. The restaurant Sopheak took us to was excellent with the food being cooked to order and delicious. Can highly recommend this tour as something out of the ordinary.

2-Days Private Tour Discovery Angkor Wat, Koh Ker and Beng Mealea Temple
My wife and did this tour just us two. Our tour guide, Sen, and our driver, Jamesbond. Sen ended up taking many pictures of us, as was very kind and new lots of the best spots for a good picture. He was very thoughtful, and frequently took pictures and videos of us on his phone when we weren’t looking, and sent them to us at the end of the day. We have so many amazing pictures thanks to him. Our driver always had a cold water and cold wipe for us when returning to the van after every temple visit, which was amazing to have since it was so hot out! Truly exceptional customer service. The 1st restaurant we went to after Angkor Wat wasn’t as good as many other places we ate at- and that’s really the only negative thing we have to say about the whole tour. We highly recommend going to Koh Ker- Sen mentioned not a lot of people go, and it was a magical experience getting to explore those temples practically alone. Prasat Bram in particular was breathtaking- like the “Tomb Raider” temple by Angkor Wat, many trees have grown on the temple buildings. Instead of Beng Melea, Sen offered to take us to Kompong Kleang floating village. We are SO glad we did, as it was a completely different side of Cambodia to see. It was both humbling and awe-inspiring to see their way of life. Sen had so much knowledge of Cambodia’s history, the history of all the temples (including the architecture and carvings) and we felt like he was truly welcoming and happy to share Cambodia with us. This is a tour you cannot miss!
