  • Beautiful temple in the north east of the city, near Tonlé Sap. A great walking tour stop that must be included in your circuit. Make sure you go all the way to the top to see a temple with many different Buddhas. Recommend.
  • It truly is a fascinating city. Giant skyscrapers stand right beside small houses. Fancy western restaurants right beside small food stands. Everyone returns your smile and the vast majority of people is ready to help. One of the most visit worth city’s in south east asia.
