Tonle Bati and Phnom Chisor

Some 35km south of the capital down National Route 2 are the two small but appealing temples at Tonle Bati, while another crumbling, peaceful temple lies some 30km further south off the same road at Phnom Chisor. Tonle Bati can be easily reached on the bus for Takeo: buy your ticket directly from the bus operator for the best price, and get off by the Sokimex petrol station – where there’s a large hoarding showing the temple – and take a moto the final 2.5km to the temple; alternatively, you can do the whole journey from the capital by moto and tuk-tuk ($8–12 return). To see Phnom Chisor, the Takeo bus also stops along the main road where enterprising moto drivers are on-hand to take you the final 2km for around $1. Alternatively, take an excursion operated by one of the capital’s travel agents or guesthouses.
