Sights

The Wat at the entrance to Pailin, built by King Sihanouk, gives excellent views of the surrounding mountains. Pailin has its own casino, (there is another directly at the border) & open-air cinema!! There is reportedly a large waterfall approx. 1 hour moto drive from Pailin. Local guide recommended for trips around Pailin due to presence of land-mines. Don't stray from those paths.
