This is a beautiful ancient site. Unfortunately, we were followed around by a group of wizened women begging for money and food and young girls selling jasmine flowers.

Phnom Penh Hiking Group organize day trip to Chisor Temple and it was a memorable experiences. It was difficult climbs but promising rewards. Breath taking views. We can visit few old temples made of sandstone with intricate crafts, symbolize the Khmer Angkorian.
