Visit the temple, of course, but be sure to look around to the sides. One is like a carnival, with lights and a recorded set of prayers being broadcast when we visited, and the other side has concrete animal statues that people will put raw...More

Cool place beautiful grounds and gardens. Close to US Embassy :) Was kind of put off by all of the offering hawkers and even a couple beggars at the entrance.

A photo stop. Several steps. Worth the climb for the shrine. Also Chinese shrine off to right side. Wooded park & cultural arts on street level.

We’ve been to Phnom Penh previously but only driven around Wat Phnom- this time our tour included a proper visit. Would strongly recommend using a guide so you get the history of this temple. Really enjoyed and glad to have been there.

Several steps to climb. Lovely temple. May be hard if you would struggle to climb, but worth it. Very pretty architecture.

There is a 1$ fee for foreigners. It is worth of it. The history of the Temple is intresting. I think you should visit the Temple because the city of Phnom Penh is named after this Temple. Old lady Penh in the picture.

The best time to visit it is night time as it is totally deserted. There is a guard so it is safe. You can climb up and see the place at your leisure.

Wat Phnom would be JUST a temple if you chose to ignore all the historical facts how it all started. I love to discover every bit of the depth of meaning it holds for the Cambodian people. It’s a Buddhist temple up on a hill...More

While there is no written dress code, it is preferable to be dressed appropriately in any and all places of worship ... a standard that is followed globally i.e. respecting the sentiments of others
