Went just for fun....however the weather was too hot so couldn't enjoy much. Also it was a weekday, so there was no other group. Beggars are the biggest problem; they stick to you. Sales people also are very pushy. Just reminded me of my country...More

Host not a huge fan of the nearby temple, you can chill out in a hammock overlooking the lake and order food for a reasonable price.

Great one day trip from Phnom Penh. The temple is small but beautiful. It's right up there with Angkor temples. The only downside are aggressive beggars.

This is a smaller version of the temples Angkor Wat. A perfect day trip from Phnom Penh. It's very cool to be around something so old, walk around and explore. The beggars are very persistent and follow you around. Just ignore them as best you...More

We had a lovely time here. Yes there were people asking for money but there was also an awesome temple with some amazing carvings. Also much easier to access than many temples as there are no steep steps. I will go back one day.
