The Wat Phnom temple is really nice to visit. The position on the hill gives the temple an impressive look and the view from the hill is nice. The temple itself is beautifull, but not very different from other temples. It is a quiet place...More

We found this easily enough and the steps were not as challenging as some of the countryside temples. Good view and interesting history which we found was enhanced by having a guide. Well maintained and worth including in a city tour / visit

Nothing special but well worth a wander around this place for only $1. They're not strict with the entrance fee so you can kind of just wander over the low rope near the gate :-)

There are basically 2 relative seasons there (rainy & dry). The sun rises early appx. late 5am+ to 6am (Cambodian time). Usually it should be appropriate from mid-7am+ after a good breakfast! Hope I answer your question... More
