This excursion to the provincial capital includes a visit to Tonle Bati, Ta Prohm, Phnom Chisor, Angkor Borei and Phnom Da.

TONLE BATI: a lake south of Phnom Penh, with a beach and the impressive laterite temple of Ta Prohm.

TA PROHM: a temple built by King Jayavarman VII (who ruled from 1181 to 1201) on the site of a 6th century Khmer shrine. A stele found here dates from 1574 and inside the north gate is a statue of the Hindu god Preah Noreay.

PHNOM CHISOR: the main temple on this hill is constructed of laterite and brick with carved lintels of sandstone. The inscriptions found here date back to the 11th century and the wooden doors to the sanctuary are decorated with interesting carvings.

ANGKOR BOREI: a 6th century monument built in laterite by King Rudravarman of Funan. His patron deity was Vishnu and many Hindu statues survive from this site. It is one of the few remaining sites with traces of the Kingdom of Funan (a kingdom influenced by India and thought to have spread as far as southern Burma and Indonesia).

PHNOM DA: a hill south of Angkor Borei with four artificial caves, built as shrines. On top of the hill is a square laterite tower.
