Lovely place to wander around to soak up the atmosphere and admire the great views from here of the city. Although the pagoda is in the centre of the city when you are in it you feel as if you are miles away. Archecture is interestinf as are the images and icons on walls and ceilings.

Not very impressive after touring so many wats in Siem Reap, however, it is a quick tour and an easy walk up to the top.

We almost didn't visit this temple as it's a little bit away from the Royal Palace and the other temples but we were happy we've stopped here when we have a driver for a day. There are few steps up the hill which are easy enough, it was hot but it didn't bother us. The view was nice, we came down via other steps and saw a nice huge Naga (snake) which looked like it was made out of hay, behind it was a clock in grass, pretty.

Used to love this Temple because of all the monkeys. Didn't see them this trip, was disappointed. The buddhist in our group liked the temple itself and the staff was very welcoming to non-practitioners coming in.

Follow the local customs, take shoes off where appropriate. Pay the $1 fee at the Tourist stand.

A must see.

Don't need a great deal of time there but good to visit. Steps to climb, but no great effort for able people.
