Phnom Penh Hiking Group organize day trip to Chisor Temple and it was a memorable experiences. It was difficult climbs but promising rewards. Breath taking views. We can visit few old temples made of sandstone with intricate crafts, symbolize the Khmer Angkorian.

Easiest way to get there from Phnom Penh is to hire a taxi. The trip takes about an hour. It's a sweaty little walk up the few hundreds of steps. You will be rewarded with an expansive view up there. The temple itself feels like a mini mini version of Angkor. From above you can see the temple used to... More

This place was added to the itinerary only during the trip, but it was surprising good. The temples could almost pass off as Angkor Wat, and they were even older. The large reclining Buddha was quite a view too. The best thing is it is totally not touristy at all! We climbed up the stairs and was rewarded with a... More

We went out to the site by taxi and I don't think we would of enjoyed a tuk tuk ride out there as it was a very bumpy and dusty drive.The 430 stairs led to a not very well maintained historical site which I didn't think was worth the trip.

This temple takes a bit to get to but it's worth it. Tuk Tuk from Phnom Penh is 30 each way but that included Phnom Chisor, Phnom Tamao Zoological Park and Wildlife Rescue Center (PTWRC), and Ta Prohm Temple. Upon arriving here I had a tasty lunch at the temple entrance before heading up the 400 plus steps. If it's... More

The place looks good in pictures but it is covered in litter. Cambodians get in free but they rip off foreign visitors on an entrance fee and cant even be bothered to pick up the litter. The last couple of miles to the site is along unmade roads. There is a nice view from the temple across the plains but... More

This is worth the drive out of the city for a day trip. Take your camera, lots of great shots here. It is not a busy site so you can take your time and enjoy it.

We went here as part of a day trip. There are quite a few steps to navigate at the temple site, so best avoid the mid-day heat. Apart from that it is a very good location. The historic temple looks untouched and there wasn't a single visitor when we visited the temple, which meant that we had a great time... More

I haven't been to Angkor Wat yet so me and my missus took a tuk tuk ride to Phnom Chiso. The temple is fascinating however there isn't much to explore as it's a small complex. We also climbed down the stairs to the ruins at the bottom of the temple not much to see down there but it was exhilarating.... More
