Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city, may get overcrowded and hectic at times, particularly during the day. Although we are far from the craziness of Jakarta or Bangkok, it may be necessary to find a place of peace if you are a resident or worker here. As an alternative, if you’re only travelling through and curious about Cambodia, you may utilize Phnom Penh as a jumping-off point for day trips. The Angkor Borei temple complex, which we previously described, is just outside the city, as you know. There are many more interesting places nearby as well. You can stay at baitong hotel as you visit the city to relax after a long day of travel.
The “silk island” is Koh Dach
Because of its location 15 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, this island’s name implies that it is well-known for its silk production. A trip to Koh Dach is a great way to get away from the city’s commotion. Tours departing from Phnom Penh Marina may take you to Koh Dach, or you can use your own means, such as a bicycle and the boat from Kep Leap, which links the island to the mainland. The island’s roads aren’t the best, and the weavers’ village is just a few miles from the ferry terminal, but it’s still worth the trip.
Kien Svay is home to the Koki Beach
15 kilometres east of Phnom Penh, this famous picnic spot in the town of Koki may be reached by vehicle or foot. A branch of the Mekong River created a lake near the little Vietnamese hamlet of Kien Svay. Getting here from Ho Chi Minh City is easy since it’s right on the way. It’s possible to eat, relax, and watch the river from one of the many bamboo huts that along the banks.
Tonle Bati’s Ta Phrom is a kind of traditional dance that dates back centuries
In the Takeo region of Cambodia, Tonle Bati National Park is a popular picnic site on the beaches of Tonle Bati Lake, about 35 kilometres from Phnom Penh. The Ta Phrom, a temple that is seldom seen by visitors, may also be viewed from the lakeside, although it should not be confused with the unidentified temple in the Angkor complex. While the famed Siem Reap Archaeological Site’s friezes were destroyed by Hindu fanatics, Jayarvarman VII’s Tonle Bati Temple, built in the 12th century, is one of the most exquisite structures outside of that site. It was definitely a fruitful excursion. From the Phnom penh hotels you can set out here on a day’s tour.
There are two Cambodian names: Phnom Chisor and Phnom Tamao
There are two more places worth seeing not far from Ta Phrom Tonle Bati. Phnom Chisor, a little-known temple dating back to the 11th century, sits on a mountaintop overlooking the Bassac River and the temples of Phnom Da and Angkor Borei in the distance. We recommend that you visit us in the morning or at night because of the oppressive heat. It’s situated in Cambodia, the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Deforestation has resulted in the orphanage of over 1000 animals (representing more than 100 different species). Many of these creatures were saved from the illegal wildlife trade.
