Tonle Bati is set on the banks of the Bati River in a well-tended grove of coconut and mango trees, where you can swim and picnic as well as seeing the two small but appealing temples.Phnom Chisor, originally known as Suryadri,was built early in the eleventh century by Suryavarman I and was once a site of some significance, housing one of four sacred linga installed by the king in temples at the boundaries of his kingdom. A hot and tiring flight of 412 steps ascends the hill from the south, though there is a shady pavilion two thirds up, and refreshment-sellers at the top and bottom. There’s a modern pagoda at the summit and a burgeoning number of sanctuaries scattered about.

Start your adventure to some of Cambodia’s lesser-known temples with a drive to the 12th Century temple of Ta Prohm Tonle Bati. Wander through the temple that was built by King Jayavaraman VII and dedicated to Buddhism, and experience for yourself why this ancient temple continues to be a central location for nearby villages during public holidays.

Then, continue on to Phnom Chisor Temple, built atop a hill and commanding stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Wander through the temples’ ancient walls before sitting down for lunch in the surround hilltop scenery. Afterwards, walk to a nearby village to see rural lifestyles up close before heading back to Phnom Penh.
