Im aware of:
1. Silk Island, cruising around the island, looking at silk weaving then enjoying a a lunch in one of the "beach" huts.
2. Visit Phnom Chisor, lunch at Tonle Bati (khmer language skills may be required),and a visit to the nearby Ta Prohm temple on the way back
3. Phnom Tamao Zoo http://phnomtamaozoo.com
4. Oudong mountain (although the the 509 steep steps to the top of the mountain may be a challenge for obese people and heavy smokers), then enjoy the roasted chicken in one of the food huts on the foot of the mountain
5. Chill out in Kirirom national park
6. Feeding frenzy at Kien Svay
7. River cruise up the Mekong river
What else would you recommend?

Hitting Kendal is nice about 20-30km out and cruising. I did phnom DA and Ba phnom in a day but it was brutal on the body.

The Phnom is really neat itself with a couple cool Wats and a really weird statue garden. One of the Wats has a giant reclining Buddha and next to it are the remains of the originals head. Because the original reclining Buddha was blown to smithereens by the KR and a chunk of the head was all that was left. Or so says the old codger who was tending to the place when I ambled through.
I'll dig out some pics and give a better trip report later if no one else beats me to it.
Please do. I hear Phnom Bassett is good for mtn. bikers and offroaders too? Would like to get precise directions, if possible...

Ahh man, come on. Half the fun was taking a wrong road that dead ended out in a rice paddy with some cud-chewing cows. All I had with me was a shitty map.
There's a big tarmac road that goes all the way there, which I finally found. I'll try to remember the turn off.
All I did was look in the distance for some phnom's that looked like they had wats on them and took a 'road' or two, ha ha, and finally got myself there. Felt a bit silly that I had blasted past this perfectly paved road that goes straight there.
Half the fun in life are the journeys, the destinations can be cool too.
