Sambor Prei Kuk is a very old, and rarely visited, temple located a four hour drvie from Siem Reap. The nearby Kampong Thom City is an excellent place to spend the night if you want to enjoy a leisurely trip. The drive itself is beautiful, a journey along the lush scenery of the Prey Preas River. Villagers in this area specialize in meals that include crickets, spiders, and frogs as well as sticky rice. The Sambo Prei Kuh temples were the second capital of the Khmer Empire and were built in the 7th Century by King Isanvarman I.
Visiting Sambo Prei Kuk can be included in visiting Kampong Thom City of Kampong Thom province
