This was the first of many temples that we visited. It was a nice place, very busy with tourists and locals.

Over the years, Wat Phnom has undergone a massive uplift. The place is much cleaner and the temple is still being visited by heaps of visitors, looking for the fortune teller who is apparently very accurate in his predictions. It is one of the major attractions in Phnom Penh and if you have the time, visit this temple at night... More

Spent an hour here relaxing after walking around seeing the city. A lovely place in the middle of a busy city. Very interesting to sit and watch the locals come and go from the temple. Lots of steps to climb to reach the top.

This is a small temple located south of most major tourist sites but is worth a visit if you have an extra hour. It does cost one dollar to get in if you are not a local, however it seems the money goes to help the temple itself so it is worth it. There was a nice park around it... More

I think this is a real place of worship, as locals can be seen praying. There are also birds to be released. It is a short climb up the stairs. I wouldn't say it's a must-visit, may because I went to Udong Mountain Temple and Chiso Mountain, which were much more impressive. It is ok to visit if you have... More

Any visit to Phnom Penh would not be complete without a visit to Wat Phnom. We always visit Wat Phnom when we go to Cambodia. There are usually monkeys on the premises although not as many as on our prior visits. Before, there were also elephants which they seem to have relocated to a better environment. The visit to Wat...

The temple is build on the only hill in Phnom Penh but really isn't a high mountain you have to climb. It's a pretty temple but nothing special. The garden around it is what makes it more fun, it's a simple but very clean garden, specially for cambodia. There's this huge clock in the middle of it and some little... More
