Good day trip

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.

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

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

This is a great mix of old and new walk around still working Wat and then to see the stunning old Wat Yes there are a lot of stairs but so worth the walk Nice drink vendors there to offer you a cold drink at the top

Chisor Temple is much smaller compare to Angkor Wat but it's said to be older than Angkor Wat according to the locals. And it's only 2hrs car ride (factoring in the traffic condition in Phnom Penh) from Phnom Penh, you can make this half a day trip if you are only staying in Phnom Penh and not going to Angkor...

My recent trip in cambodia wasn't complete if I hadn't take a tuktuk and spend more than 2 hour to visit the temple in chisor mountain. It was truely amazing place to visit. a very peaceful place to ease my tough,bumpy and dusty riding experince. Monks staying in this place are friendly and suggested to go up on the top... More

I can't remember how many steps there are to get to the top but it's lots. However it's well worth the effort as not only are the views spectacular, but the ancient ruins at the top are fascinating.

We decided to go to Tonle Bati and Phnom Chisor after exhausting what PP had to offer. While we did not enjoy the visit of the Tonle Bati temple, we really thought that Phnom Chisor was worth the two-hour car ride. There are two sets of stairs to get to the temple - the old renovated one and the modern... More
