Would have been great if not because of the murky waters. The journey was very long and tiring . The sad part was to find that due to the rain, we could hardly see anything

This interesting site is past BanteaySrei and requires a half-hour hike through forest to reach it. The stone carvings in the riverbed may be unique among the Angkor ruins, and their appearance will vary with the time of year and level of water. The relative...More

No, but it would be quite hot and tiring. PLUS from the base of the hill you have to climb anyway. And that is for at least 45 minutes. So it's preferable to hire a car.
