Inquiry Submission By westsidewoman1

Pardon me if this is posted twice but the first one disappeared before I finished re-reading it. We are going to visit Preah Vihear in January and have read conflicting stories about whether we will need a guide to understand the temples. My second question was about the condition of the road, but after further research it would appear that we cannot drive to the temple but must take a lift, is that correct? We are contemplating renting a car to visit some of the countryside of Cambodia and if so, would have our own transport to the site (or wherever the “lift” is). If we don’t rent the car and take a driver to get us to the area (from Battambang where we will be coming from) , how far is the site from the town where the accommodation is located?
