  • As a person who find it hard to stay under warm weather I always enjoy spending time eating, sight seeing and resting here. The climate here is just cool. Spending time reading books is ideal. I can feel at peace listening to sound of water fall/cascade. I love the view of pine trees and you can shoot your pre-wedding here. It's also a good place for meditation. I recommend a one day visit.
  • It has got fresh air. It has got a lot of pine trees. The weather there is exceptional cool
  • Beautiful and tranquil place to visit and enjoy, especially during your vacation. It's also the only place to have pine tree in Cambodia!
  • If you seek for moderate to challenging hike trip to the jungle with distance about 17km, there is the best place, start from ecotourism site through bamboo forest, see bat cave, enjoy with beautiful waterfall, explore beautiful jungle and enjoy with birds watching. Please pack lunch or extra food with water and repellent, sun cream and camera to capture such a beautiful photos during the trip. Don't forget to hire local guide to make sure your trip is wonderful. Cheer let enjoy our adventures life together
