Early this morning, travel by private vehicle to Phnom Chisor temple in Takeo Province south of Phnom Penh. Climb the steps to the top of the mountain to explore the well-preserved ruins of a 10th century temple from the Angkor-era. Enjoy the amazing views over the Cambodian countryside.
From there, continue to Takeo, a small town that is truly Cambodian. Here you will enjoy a simple but very tasty lunch at a local restaurant. Observing the life in the small city is a must as basically anything beyond your imagination happens here in terms of transportation, market life and business. The little children are lined up along the road to welcome everyone with a friendly greeting. Take a boat from Takeo along a peaceful river to the archaeological museum of Angkor Borei and on to the temple ruins of Phnom Da. On the way, you will have the chance to observe rural life in Cambodia.
On the way back to Phnom Penh stop at Tonle Bati, a recreation area where the Khmers like to spend their leisure time. During the weekdays, Tonle Bati sees very few visitors and the site is quiet and peaceful. Tonle Bati Temple is an Angkorian-style temple. End of Takeo getaway.
