Overview

Oudong, located in Kampong Speu Province, is a small town 40km northwest of Phnom Penh. It is called Oudong Meanchey.

Great tour for those time crunched in Cambodia.

Great tour! Guide was extremely knowledgeable and open to all sorts of questions and diversions. Never felt rushed but took it at "our" pace. Really nice tour, would recommend to others.

Loved the visit to the Monastery for the Buddhist blessing, as I practice Buddhism, the grounds and history fascinating, the inside of the temple was very beautiful and elaborately decorated.
You must do this!!

Our guide, Pich was the best! Knowledgeable, passionate about Cambodia, the people and conservation. We loved this tour - we had booked tuk tuk but were so glad that the showed up to pick us up in a very nice air conditioned car for the 90 minute drive to Oudong. We visited an amazing monastery, climbed up to the temple, had a Buddhist blessing, saw the food markets outside and visited a village to see them making silver wear which we bought of course, so beautiful. We had lunch included too! This tour company gives the guides money for the children and cleaners around the temple so that you are free not to respond to the “begging” if you don’t want to...they are highly recommended.

Visited the Oudong Monastery for a group Buddhist blessing which was great, although I didn't have a clue what was said . Thereafter, we had an opportunity to see how the monks lived and viewed the largest Buddhist stature in Cambodia.
Nice to see the country side

It is a good tour. If I could choose again I would probably choose car instead of tuk tuk, because the raid to oudong isn't the best road and you get dusty alone the way.
I get to see the country side of the Phnom Penh, which is very interesting. The temple is located on top of the hill. Weather was extremely hot in July. So be prepared! View on the hill is amazing.
I recommend for those who already seen most of the attractions in the city and would like to see different side of the Phnom Penh.
