What are some outdoor things to do in Phnom Penh? Travel outside Phnom Penh city for a day to Phnom Chisor Mountain & more

On this private full-day tour, you experience all facets of Cambodian culture, from golden pagodas and crumbling temples, to bustling markets and silk-weaving villages. The first stop is Phnom Chisor, an 11th-century Khmer temple constructed using bricks and sandstone. Set atop a hill on the Takeo Province, this collection of ancient temples is surrounded by a panoramic view of the countryside. You will embark on an 100-meter climb to reach the top. After exploring Phnom Chisor, you'll visit a silk-weaving village to learn about the intricate process of creating beautiful fabrics. Next stop is Takeo, where you'll get on a boat and glide to the Phnom Da and Asram Maha Rosei temples. Phnom Da is an impressive pre-Angkorian laterite tower. This temple is covered in moss and surrounded by tall trees, giving it a mysterious quality. The Asram Maha Rosei temple is heavily influenced by Indian culture, with domes and sandstone carvings unlike anything else in Cambodia. It is here, surrounded by ancient scenery, that you will have a picnic-style lunch. On the way back to Phnom Penh, you'll stop by the 10th-century temple Prasat Neang Khmao (the temple of the Black Virgin). You'll also see Tonle Bati, a small river with bamboo huts rising from its surface. Next you'll be taken to Ta Prohm (not to be confused with the Ta Prohm in Siem Reap), a small jungle-temple with Hindu bas-reliefs carvings, renowned for their amazingly detailed renderings of famous myths. Inside the temple proper, you can find lingams depicting the god Shiva. The Yeay Peau is a smaller temple you will walk through and, if time permits, your final stop will be the Russian Market. Here, you'll find antiquities, silver and gold jewelry, wood carvings, and many other special souvenirs.
