Wat Nokor is really cool. There are not many foreign visitors, and the locals still use the place. It is pretty quiet and peaceful. Just be aware that you do have to pay to go inside, which varies from person to person.

Had a private guide through this area. Heard the monks drumming exactly at five pm and the chanting at six. Such a beautiful place and great photo op. Lots of depth, and the inside prayer is spectacular. Quite a surprise once inside.
