We visited at around 11am and there seemed to be more people across the road at Chau Say Thevada for some reason. So it is somewhat peaceful in comparison. It has three small buildings so although "cute" is not a word I usually use to describe temples, it feels appropriate here. The original stonework on the inside of the temple is still in place and it looks very fresh, even after 1200 years.
As with most of the temples, there are people hanging around soliciting donations for "orphanages" which may or may not exist. They will hustle you by offering to walk you around the temple and then hit you up for a donation afterwards so that you feel like you "owe" them something. I walked into this trap because I was a bit naiive and I just thought it was lovely that a local wanted to explain the temple to me. I should have known there are no free lunches. But just keep this in mind, and understand that if somebody wants to show you around you should pay them; whether it's for a real orphanage or not, if you keep the mindset that they have provided a service to you, you won't feel ripped off when you hand over your dollar note.
And of course if this is all too much to worry about, just politely decline when you are approached.
