This is worth the drive out of the city for a day trip. Take your camera, lots of great shots here. It is not a busy site so you can take your time and enjoy it.

Chiso mountain is in Takeo province of Cambodia with the real view of mountain temple built the Angkorian King. It is nice and fantastic in this province. The way up to the hill is more than 400 steps. Highly recommend this temple.
