Ancient City of Ondong
Ancient City of Ondong is part of the Tentative list of Cambodia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Ancient City of Oudong was the capital of Cambodia from the 17th to the 19th century. It was built next to the sacred mountain of Oudong. It also had a port at Tonle Sap. Due to its commercial importance it also attracted foreigners, who lived in enclaves and established their own religious structures.

Yesterday I went to Oudong Mountain.It is a religious mountain with a lot of temples, pagodas on the mountain. Some are very New, others are older. Some are small, others are bigger. The view from the hill is spectacular. I went up by the stairs and went down the other way. Not so many tourists during the week, But the weekend must be crowded, seeing all the infrastructure there. Also in the surroundings you see a lot of temples. On the parking lot is a small structure with bones from the red kamer horror.
You drive there on the highway 5 to Battambang, from Phnom Penh it is almost 1h30min and Price for tuktuk is 20 USD.
Last year, I went on a trip to Udong mountain (or Phnom Preah Reach Trop in Khmer). I went there by bicycle with my sister and her friends.It is about 45km from the capital of Phnom Penh. In fact, we can also reach there by bus. The site is so beautiful, and the mountain is not so high that we can reach the top easily. From the top, I can see a lot of beautiful rice fields, pagodas, and houses. There are some mysterious places there and big buddhas. The nature and ancient places there are quite fantastic!
