Meet the driver-guide at the hotel lobby.
At about sixty kilometers from Siem Reap is the largest complex of Beng Melea, a temple with an adjoining monastery nestled in the jungle, which covers an area of over one square km.
Built in the same style and by the same king who built Angkor Wat, Beng Melea is considered by many may actually also to have been a prototype of the great temple.
Being devoid of carvings, it is thought to have been completed painted to be ‘internal to’ outside.
Most of the monastic complex has not been restored and the atmosphere is fantastic.
With the exception of the Ta Phrom, this complex offers the best shots of vegetation and large trees integrated into the temple.
Continuing it come Kampong Khleang, a village located 40 kilometers from Siem Reap, usually avoided by mass tourism.
