  • Negotiated with Tuk-tukerom on the trip immediately in both the monastery-Wat Krom and Wat Leu. On the territory of Wat Leu live Buddhist monks, dogs and monkeys. On arrival at the shrine watched "battle" monkeys with dogs for food. Sly monkey won udrala with food. The temple itself is special impressions produced no-one can go if absolutely nothing to do or for religious reasons. A good playground with views of the city (for photographers). Not to say that a trip to Wat Leu is a waste of time, but great pleasure from it.

  • Not the most ornate, but still a very typical style of pagoda with monks I. Residence and terrific views over the town of Sihanoukville. Entertaining monkeys as well!

  • I did not expect something special but definitely worth to see here. 1. Clear colors of many sculptures like Naga,monkey and monk. I saw lots of Wat in cambodia but looks so old and not well maintained. 2. Vivid and cute monkeys...what an awesome...small monkeys where I see in India,Nepal and forests are all naughty but here small monkeys are so cute to take 100 pictures 3. Awesome to climbing to there through Life university(why life?).20-25 minutes you can see beautiful Sihanoukville(kampongsom) view. Not so awesome but cool breeze and view of the sea a little bit far from wat. Worth it to hike 4. Good objects for picture. I should bring there camera tomorrow again.
  • It is a monastery for Buddhism to pray. It is on the highest point where you could see the whole city
  • Pagoda, located on the hill of mountain, it made a nice landscape to see the whole city. Good environment, clean and fresh air.
  • What a special, place. Fantastic views and beutiful temples. Locals very helpful and we even had a pure chance meeting with the buddhist leader of the area and received travel blessings.
  • A nice Wat at the top of a peak. The view of the coast is very nice from up here. The temple itself was locked, but the side building was open. The one draw back were the locals following us asking for money.
