Wat Chai Watthanaram May 02, 2013
This Wat is made in the Khmer style but mostly out of bricks. When I was there, they had extensive renovations and were installing electricity to the ruins. Most of the Wat is reconstructed and if you went to Cambodian similar sites, you will be disappointed. Building and walls are made of brick that is falling apart. Entrances to the small towers that line up the wall around the Wat are also crumbling and separating from the main building, probably due to flooding and bad reconstruction. You will have to pay some money (I think that fee was 50bath) to get in to this place and honestly it is not worth it… Wat is located outside of the island and nested right on the river which makes it good stopping point if you are taking tours with the boat. Anyway it was an easy and nice ride to see this thing, but again, you can see everything without coming inside the complex.
