Day trips out of Phnom Penh

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

So finally made it to Phnom Chisor after more then five years in the Kingdom. Heavy construction work on National Road 2 from Stung Meanchey to the roundabout after Takhmao, so I recommend driving through Takhmao at the moment. About 10 km of Road 2 after the roundabout is currently a gravel road, due to road upgrade, the remaining part until you turn off National Road 2 to Phnom Chisor is in fairly decent condition, with very few potholes. The 5 km road to Phnom Chisor is mostly gravel, and should be passable even with a normal moto.

At Thursday around lunchtime there were only a handful of other visitors, all young Khmers. There are some wooden huts at the foot of the mountain with hammocks, offering food and drinks. Entrance fee at the top of the mountain is 2 US$ for foreigners.

Some photos below.

Bokor Mountain and Kep can certainly be visited in a day. Recently, I did a trip there via motorbike. Lots of fun and chilly at the top!
