3. Have a break at a roadside stall, we stopped and bought a selection of bananas as a snack.
4. Take mosquito spray and sun lotion, both could come in handy.
5. Don't forget your swimming kit, so you can take a refreshing dip in the water fall.
6. Be respectful and remove your shoes when visiting the Monastery, ladies will should also cover their shoulders and knees.
7. Be aware that the money the locals are changing near the monastery is 'fake'. It's used as an offering, so if you do change any you won't be able to use it anywhere else.
8. Try some local food - just make sure it's cooked through and piping hot first. Our favourite was the beef jerky...it was delicious.
9. Take some riel for the toilets (R500 a time), and be prepared to squat as there are no western toilets. Also if you're not comfortable with using a 'bum gun' or bucket and water take some toilet paper with you.
10. Pick up your rubbish before you leave, during festivals and public holidays enough rubbish is left lying around without more being added to it.
Have you visited Kulen Mountain or Phnom Kulen National Park either as a day trip or multi-day tour? Have I missed anything there is to see off the beaten track?
