  • The road to get to this site is more beautiful than the cave she even. The Lord $ 1 right of access as the young cashier puts himself in the Pocket because does not give tickets, accompany a young guide who charges $ 5 for us without even lamps worthy of this name, and no serious knowledge of the frankly average place. The cave is pretty, but we got a little feeling of having a big $ on the front. Not really great. Be very careful because inside is very slippery place, good Footwear required.

  • When i see reviews on this cave it seems like noone enjoyed. Seen the cave, not brilliant, got a bit cheated by local boys. All is NOT how we´ve experienced! Came there, local boy joined us, we didnt ...  more »
  • I visited the chhnok caves in 2013. They are a small driving trip with tuk tuk from the Compote. the ride out there is really nice, when you see the local da Cave is located away from the main road. There was not other than me as a tourist. It is local children there against 1 $ shows a round. You can't without a guide. My tuk tuk driver was very happy when I asked if he wanted to. It is no great and Wild Cave, but it was a good experience. My guide was very sweet and helpful and knew a lot of things. It is a poor country with an incredibly grateful population. So steadily, finally up cost. What they can offer.

  • Nice place with cool feel. One of the oldest 2nd style of Khmer trample made from brick that is the only last 2 temple in this 2nd stylist of totally 13 stylist at traditional Khmer architecture. The Angkor Wat is in 12th stylist traditional Khmer architecture, so imagine that how old stylist of this temple! The name of 2nd style of traditional Khmer architecture is " Tela Bari Wat" . The most value thing hiding in a cave of Kampot with almost unknown from the local Khmer people that will disappears or destroy by the nature is very soon. I'm a Khmer architect, I do really love and highly recommend this place to all people around the world, even this is just a small cave with a little bit capture but it has its values as the humans heritages.
  • Entrance is $1 (at the time of March 2016). You head up an ornate staircase to the cave. It is high and pretty well-lit. The ticket man lent us his torch, but we didn't especially need it. The temple and the cave are beautiful, I would definitely say it's worth a look. When we went it was empty - always a bonus!
  • Had a local kid show us around and tell us about the cave. It's pretty small but very nice... You'd need a guide to get around it as there's a few very narrow areas to clamber through. It's out of the way and we didn't see any other tourists. The area around the cave is wonderful. I highly recommend hiring a motorbike and cruising around. Nearby is the so-called "secret lake" which is worth a visit. After a month or so in Cambodia, this felt like the first truly rural 'real' Cambodia.
  • Lovely peaceful stop on your Kampot tour, Ancient pre-Angkor Wat Temple in the cave.
  • Its a cave. There's nothing really special about it. I visited on a countryside tour and thought it was an OK stop, but it's really not more than that.
