Amazing experience! I recommend visiting Banteay Chhmar for two nights, and staying at a homestay organised by the community-based tourism programme. They can arrange transport from Battambang (3 hours drive) or Siem Reap (3.5 hours drive). We did a circuit of Siem Reap-Battambang-Banteay Chhmar-Siem Reap over 9 days, and would recommend that itinerary if you feel in the mood for exploration.

The homestay we stayed at was in a beautiful wooden house, and our homestay mum cooked delicious and hearty Khmer cuisine and was very friendly and kind to us. The community-based tourism programme is organised and run by the people of Banteay Chhmar, and so benefits the local community, and for the traveller, provides a rare glimpse of traditional life in the Cambodian countryside.

Our first night we enjoyed the traditional music performance, which was something very special, and the next day, the village tour gave us the opportunity to see the variety of produce cultivated in the region, visit the silk weaving workshop, as well as see some beautiful outlying temples. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful in sharing with us an insider perspective of life in Banteay Chhmar.

The main temple complex of Banteay Chhmar is mystical and memorable, with dramatic bas reliefs of the battles between the Khmer and the Cham. Whereas at Angkor Wat and Bayon, the Buddhist images have been chiselled away under subsequent Hindu rulers, Banteay Chhmar holds rare and beautiful sculptures of the Avalokiteshvara. The many face-towers, deep vegetation, and remote location give a sense of mystery.

As a practical recommendation, make sure to bring sufficient cash to make payment as well as for tips, including small bills (< USD$5 bills or equivalent in Cambodian riels). Also, if travelling in the dry season, make sure to carry and drink plenty of water (about 1L per person). For the adventurous traveller who is keen to go off the beaten track, a visit to Banteay Chhmar can be the highlight of your trip!

We booked 2 nights in a lovely homestay through the Banteay Chhmar Community based Tourism Organisation (CBT). Communication (E-Mail and phone) and support was excellent. We got picked up by taxi in Siem Reap and brought to the guest family. We had a very interesting tour through the Temple and a visit to a Khmer Loeu Village by motorbike. We enjoyed experiencing live in a small Cambodian village with friendly people including very tasty Khmer food. Very nice and interesting experience!

Cet endroit est extraordinaire. Sur place, en plus du logement chez l’habitant, il y a moyen de loger dans une tente au milieu des ruines. Ce logement est organisé par CBT (community-based tourism). C’est Out of Asia ! La tente est pourvue d’air co, d’un frigo, d’une douche froide et d’une toilette. On dine à l’extérieur, devant la tente, au son d’un petit orchestre de musiciens locaux qui jouent d’instruments anciens.
Le guide de CBT est vraiment sympathique et parle un excellent anglais. Avec lui, nous avons aussi visité les petits temples satellites tellement attachants.
De belles passerelles en bois ont été construites dans les ruines, permettant ainsi de visiter le site sans escalader les pierres.

This 12th-century temple lies in the northwest of Cambodia, a beautiful rural area seldom visited by tourists. This enormous complex, which was a temple city, is one of the most intriguing in the Khmer empire, both for it's scale and it's remote location. Never excavated, Banteay Chhmar fits the picture of a lost Khmer city with its ruined face-towers, carvings, forest surroundings and bird life flying through the temple.  There is no bus to Banteay Chhmar. Instead, you need to take either a taxi directly from Siem Reap or Battambang, or take a bus from either to Sisophon, the provincial capital of Banteay Meanchey province, and take a taxi from there. Sometimes the capital is also called Banteay Meanchey too. This magnificent Khmer temple lies crumbling in forest near the Cambodian border It has a romantic and discovery feel to it.

Visite en pleine nature, bien sur il y a beaucoup de temples écroulés mais franchement ça ne gache en rien la visite.

Si raggiunge da Battambang in auto oppure da Siem Reap. Ne vale la pena. Essendo poco visitato vi ritroverete probabilmente soli a camminare tra queste rovine che trasudano mito e mistero, circondati da una natura preponderante che sta prendendo il sopravvento, ma chissà, la nostra guida ci dice che forse lo restaureranno.
Le quattro facce che guardano i quattro punti cardinali sono presenti nelle alte torri agli estremi di questo complesso veramente affascinante, fuori dai soliti itinerari proposti e proprio per questo ancor più coinvolgente.

К этому храму на всем протяжении пути ведет асфальтированная дорога, поэтому добраться из Сием Рипа можно без проблем в любое время года. Храм достоин посещения. Рельефы на стенах, не уступающие Байоновским и Ангкоровским (предварительно, конечно, надо ознакомиться с их описанием и сюжетами, - такое в интернете найти можно), башня с четырехликим Буддой (хотя, конечно, с Байоном не сравнить)… Аренда машины на весь день (кроссовер Лексус с кондиционером) обошлась в 90 долларов. Время в пути в один конец – 2,5 часа. Стоимость посещения – 5 долларов.

I booked a two night homestay for my daughter and I through visitbanteaychhmar.com. Everything was organised by email with the coordinator of their Community Based Tourism organisation (CBT). We were picked up in Siem Reap and then dropped off in Battambang at the end but alternatively you can get the bus to Sisophon and get picked up from there.

We stayed with Savin Sarin and his family in a small room with fan and en-suite toilet. Our meals were at the CBT office and prepared by local women from the village. We were given bicycles to ride between our homestay and CBT.

We toured the impressive remains of the original temple, went to an even smaller village for a day and mixed with local villagers. Only the CBT staff seem to speak English but we managed to learn a little Khmer so we could say things like hello and thank you to the people we met. Cycling through the village every day with children calling out hello to us along the way was a lot of fun. Also sharing a beer with our homestay ‘dad’ in the afternoons and watching a Cambodian soap opera on TV with he and his wife ‘mum’ in hammocks at night are are things I’ll never forget.

The rest of our Cambodian trip was spent in beautiful air conditioned hotels with swimming pools but I can honestly say that our homestay in Banteay Chhmar was the highlight of our holiday. Yes it’s hot, exhausting and challenging and you’re way out of your comfort zone. But it was so rewarding. CBT has won awards for their program and I can see why. It’s such a welcoming place and it’s so good to know that the money you spend there benefits the local people. I only wish we could have spent more time there.

Combined this with Preah Vihear on a road trip with friends.

A truly lost city, were the only visitors and spent a couple of hours enjoying how spiritual this temple is and imagining the beauty of the original temple.

Temple in the far north west of Cambodia. Temple is in round but an interesting visit nonetheless. Relief’s in the outer wall tell of interesting life and battles. Many of the towers have fallen down and others are supported to stop the further collapse.
