It's taken me three and a half years to visit Wat Phnom and frankly, I could have missed it. The new arts centre has some potential if you like shopping and the area does offer some cool respite from the heat with shaded paths and...More

If you visit Phnom Penh in Cambodia I recommend you take an hour out to visit Wat Phnom. Most likely you'll be staying within a 5 minute / $US3 Tik Tik ride from here. Buddhism is an important part on Khmer life and Buddhist monks...More

Nice park. Nice wat. Nothing special. Pity they moved the monkeys. Could be improved by being a bit cleaner. Do go but its a bit underwhelming.

This is not necessarily a must see if you a short on time, but I really enjoyed it. Quite a few steps to climb up, but worth it. You could run around it in 5 mins or you can fill a happy half an hour...More

Better to go in the morning or late afternoon as the midday heat is too extreme. It is an outdoor activity

I want to say that I read somewhere that it opens at 7:30... when I went, I bought a ticket at a kiosk for 1 usd, but no one collected it. So if no one is at the ticket kiosk, don't assume that the temple is closed or let... More

While there is no written dress code, it is preferable to be dressed appropriately in any and all places of worship ... a standard that is followed globally i.e. respecting the sentiments of others
