Amazing city centre temple, but beware of aggressive macaques

This is an amazing template on a hill in the city, and definitely worth the stop. It provides great photo opportunities too. A word of caution though... there are wild macaques... read more

We came here with our guide so we're educated in much of the buddhist etiquette which was fascinating. This is where Phnom Penh was founded. It is illuminated at night and is an impressive sight.

This is a wonderful way to experience living culture, see monkeys and have a bit of nature in PP. it doesn't cost anything but is nice to live a donation for the monks.

This is an amazing template on a hill in the city, and definitely worth the stop. It provides great photo opportunities too. A word of caution though... there are wild macaques in the surrounding brush, and while I was taking pictures (and that is all I was doing!) one of them ran up to me, grabbed my leg and was... More

What I love about Phnom Penh attractions is that they are not overrun with tourists. This has lovely gardens surrounding, and a lovely hall with many Buddhas.. I really liked it.

There were so many tourists that it was a bit overwhelming. The wat is beautiful but the amount of people taking selfies really ruined the buddhist atmosphere for me.

Must go. Head right to the top and check out Phnom Penh view from there. My favourite things to do here - set free small birds. USD1 for 2 birds.

As far as Wats go, this is not spectacular, but it is worth a visit, as it has nice park type areas to sit in the shade, and you will get a few nice pictures. It is also conveniently located near several other attractions, so it is a good stop along the way. $1 entrance fee. It is lit up... More

I was put of by the demand for a dollar when all I wanted to do was walk in the garden at the base of the hill that used to be a public area. I can sort of understand charging a tourist if they want to tour the Wat but the toll gate is in the wrong place

Walk around, climb the steps, and look at local people enjoying this quiet spot in the midst of the city.
