    Go on the right day and it’s a nice hike with a rewarding view. Go on the busier days and the peacefulness is replaced by swarms of people who throw their trash everywhere.

    When I visited Oudong Mountain, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had little to no background as to what was there, but was dragged along on a group trip, so I went with it. There are a couple temples with amazing outlooks. Go at sunset for the best views. Also, in one of the temples lies what I call "the Buddha room" with 5,364 Buddhas within. It's a worthwhile site if you're in town. Prepare for many stairs. Bring water, as it gets hot, and brace yourself for some mild exercise to the top.

    Such a beautiful place. It is so peaceful and quiet with gorgeous gardens. We were blessed by the Buddhist priest with lotus blossoms. A wonderful ceremony.

    Climbing the mountain to see the beautiful landscape, pray to Buddha, breath of the fresh air. Yeah, it's Oudong, the best place to escape from the stressful city.

    Old Cambodia. Landscaping is kept up fabulously in most places. Quiet, friendly, peaceful.
