What to do in Takeo, Cambodia
Takeo is a relatively small town that is easily explored by foot in less than 60 minutes. But it is well worth an overnight stay if planning to visit nearby sites like Angkor Borei and Phnom Da.

 
For the traveler on the Cambodia package holiday staying overnight in town, the waterfront promenade is a perfect place to relax in the early morning or late afternoon to watch the sunrise or sunset.
  • Phnom Da

    Phnom Da is a hilltop sanctuary and gives visitors a chance to explore a pre-Angkor temple. It is best visited on a scenic tour by boat from nearby Takeo town although it is also an easy drive from Phnom Penh. This gives a perfect opportunity to see the local rural Cambodian countryside.

    The pre-Angkor temple is in a quite ruined state but a trek to the top of the hill (nearly 1000 steps) makes it possible to view the local surroundings, including the rice fields and floodplain to Vietnam. The path that leads to the top of the mountain can vary in relation to difficulty and fitness level with a choice of climbing the 1000 steps, hiking up a steep path, or tramping through the forest. The ability to travel to Phnom Da on the Indochina tour packages can vary with the time of season. In the rainy season, this hilltop sanctuary is only accessible by boat, while in the dry season there is also the option to arrive by road.

    Affording breathtaking views of Vietnam’s pancake-flat Mekong Delta, the cliff-ringed summit of Phnom Bayong (313m) is graced by a 7th-century Chenla temple built to celebrate a victory over Funan. The linga (phallic symbol) originally in the inner chamber is now in Paris’ Musée Guimet, but a number of flora- and fauna-themed bas-relief panels can still be seen, for example on the lintels of the three false doorways, and carved into the brickwork.
