"Kbal Spean: DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!" Angkor Wat Things to Do Tip by Snipernurse

Angkor Wat Things to Do: 834 reviews and 1,837 photos

Just as mentioned in my Siem Reap page, Kbal Spean is a dissapointment. There are far more impressive carvings throughout the Angkor area than this one. The long dusty and bumpy road is borderline miserable and what turns out to be a creek with some rock carvings will not be what you will need to satisfy you for enduring such a journey. If you are one that needs to see all you can (like me) then so be it, go, but make sure you email me you went and were dissapointed so I can say 'I told you so!'
There is some sort of animal sanctuary near the area that is open for like one hour of the day. I waited until that hour and the tour guide never showed. Don't sit around and wait for that either
