Beng Mealea, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The basics

A rural location away from the main Angkor temples means that Beng Mealea sees far fewer crowds. With that in mind, plenty of off-the-beaten-path sightseeing tours stop at the temple; tours tend to transport you by either tuk-tuk, air-conditioned vehicle, or on a bike. and usually combine Beng Mealea with the intricately-decorated Banteay Srei. Many continue on to Tonle Sap Lake, one of the largest freshwater lakes in Asia, and include a cruise to the floating villages of Kompong Khleang.

Koh Ker & Beng Mealea Full-Day Join-in Tour
Very large area surrounding koh ker was destroyed by a large fire, so we were disappointed by the view. We weren’t informed in advance of the ticket cost change at Beng Mealea, from 5 usd to 37 usd. Our guide was very good and friendly.

Ultimate Angkor Wat Sunrise Tours, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Banteay Srei And Beng Mealea
We had an amazing trip with Sam our tourguide and driver. He could tell us so many details about the historical places we visited and also has hreat knowledge about his country's history. He took wonderful fotos from us from very special locations. The car was cooled down well and Sam dupplied us with as many water bottlrs as we needed. We can highly recommend this special tour were we visited 5 different temples within 11 hours. He could answer all our questions, and there were plenty of them. ;-)

Ultimate Angkor Wat Sunrise Tours, Bayon, Ta Prohm, Banteay 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.

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.
