Wat Phnom Monkeys – Snapshot of Phnom Penh


Wat Phnom is located in Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh. After visiting the wat we wandered around the hill that it sits on and came across these monkeys. Our previous experience with monkeys in Lop Buri, Thailand, had us keeping a great distance.

As I watched from afar, this little boy tried to get closer and closer to the monkeys. His mother kept a close eye on him and pulled him back. But, the little boy had such determination…he wanted nothing more than to feed that leaf to those monkeys.
