It look quite impressive from the entrance but the temple is quite small and won't take more than 15 mins to go around. Foreigner have to pay 1US to climb the stair and there is a guard halfway who check the ticket. Only worth a visit if you have no where to go

When people, specially foreigners, say there's nothing more you can see in wat phnom, it is because it is a temple. I was told by one of my khmer friends that people who come to visit this place must wish for good business and wealth... It is not an amusement park or some sort of a tourist attraction really... And... More

This place is featured among one of Phnom Penh`s top attractions but there isn`t much to see, really. There are some nice structures to take pictures but the visit is over very quickly. Some small pagodas around town offer much more, actually. One upside is that it is very well kept and clean, unlike some of the small pagodas and... More

The last site we saw for our one day trip. There was no booth to pay the entrance but one guard asked us when we climbed the top. 1 USD for entrance fee. We were amazed with the big clock that showed the exact time when we were there. To know more about our trip, I wrote a blog post... More

Given everything else we had seen in Phnom Penh, this was the only disappointment, perhaps it was all the works to the grounds that was going on (about 70%) of the surrounding area, or maybe the very obvious group of bag-snatchers that followed us the whole time (young kids). They tried their best like throwing things in front of our... More

A nice spot to visit in between other sites. Sourrounded by a lovely garden and many shady trees, the main temple area is worth a visit.

This littlw hill in the city is the main attraction when it used to have Sambo the elephant around. It is a small hill with parks and trees and temple in top. Monkeys are around too ready for photo ops. Situated at the end of the main road Norodom Blvd with Victory Monument at its other end.
