Our tour of this remote town includes visits to Pol Pot’s grave, the border market, Pol Pot and Ta Mok, (aka ‘The Butcher)’s villas – now grim concrete shells but spectacularly located on the edge of the steep Dandrek Escarpment marking the border between Thailand and Cambodia - and the strange ‘lake of dead trees’ created by a Khmer Rouge dam project. Continue eastwards with a scenic drive along the foot of the Dandreks to Preah Vihear Temple. Recently declared a World Heritage Site, this 10th-12th century Hindu temple has certainly the most dramatic setting of any Khmer temple, rising in a series of steps from Thailand’s Khorat Plateau to culminate in a sheer 400 meter drop-off overlooking the plains and forests of Northern Cambodia.
