Foreigners pay $1.00 to enter. Beautiful gardens surround the Wat. I am not Buddhist so did not enter temple. Nice architecture. Gift shop on premises.

I didn't go inside the pagoda, but it looked good from outside. It sat on a large hill and had some nice features around it.

From the hilltop pagoda of Wat Phnom you can enjoy views across the city. There are a few steps to climb but it’s worth it. Mix with locals coming to pray and offering gifts at the temple. This a place of worship but we were...More
