Best experience was going in to the inner temple (they locked up a door), and we climbed in to this neon lighted buddha - and got blessed. Kids liked it! We though it was fine. Dont need a lot of time, but worthwhile going into.

A Buddhist temple compound, still functioning as a monastery. Feel free to walk around, take lots of photos, could be done in about 1 hour. No charge, but you could leave money at various locations near the statues.

So full of life. Amazing active buddhist monastery. We were there during the 15-day Phjum Ben Ceremony, in which Cambodians return to their hometowns to their local Wats to honor their ancestors.

this wat, Pagode, has been deeply damaged during the war. It is nowadays a lively place and temple, with view on the tonal sap, but not the most beautiful way you could see. It is interesting however because it is daily used by locals.
