Cultural Village Cambodia

This interesting (and slightly bizarre) theme park assembles miniatures of famous historical buildings and structures of Cambodia, grouped into 11 villages.

Neak Pean

One of many great Buddhist temples in the region, this artificial island is one of the more breathtaking!

Srah Srang

This little (well not so little) oasis is a reservoir built by 10th Century Buddhists and is a tranquil tourist spot.

Banteay Kdei

One of the most interesting and larger Buddhist monastic complexes in the region!

Preah Khan

A magical place to visit, this largely unrestored temple is a mixture of beautiful architecture, now being reclaimed by the jungle around it.

Beng Mealea

One of the region's Hindu temples and a world heritage site.

Banteay Srei

Although slightly out of the way, when touring the temples of the region, this is one you don't want to miss.

Angkor Thom

One of the more impressive and larger temple complexes in the area, and a popular spot for some Hollywood blockbusters.

Bayon

Another beautifully decorated and monumental temple in the region.

Angkor Wat

This is the largest religious monument in the world, and well worth taking a tour of.

Planning Your Siem Reap Visit

When to visit?

You can visit Siem Reap all year round, however, make sure to look at the climate statistics before you go and while you are there and plan your days accordingly! The weather is tropical and variable. As a rule of thumb, the weather is driest from November to March, so if you want to avoid tropical rain, then this is perhaps the best time to book your trip!

How may days?

Most tourists go to the region to visit the local temples. You can purchase different types of temple passes. However, a three day pass, and three nights in Siem Reap will be enough to fufill any temple-goers!

What people are saying about Siem Reap

Safe but thrilling experience in Angkor Park

The activity took place right inside of Angkor Park which we did not have to pay a single cent for the park entrance! The company gave us a demonstration on how to safely enjoy the zipline and was always on top of our safety. I really enjoy the staff's enthusiasm and friendliness as they were giving us lots of information about the park and the animals that live in Angkor park during the small trek to the station and back. Over the treetop, we were able to catch a glimpse of Kulen mountain and enjoying the greeneries over Angkor park. I had a lot of fun and highly recommended anyone who would like an adventure in Siem Reap!

Wonderful sunset experience with friendly and energised staff

First time driving quad bike was a little nervous but the staff really took the time to give instruction how to operate quad bike which was quite easy! The leader of the tour drive with us and stop the car for us on every turns. We drove pass through local houses and got a lot of smile and wave from the people there especially the kids. The timing of the tour was perfect, giving us the opportunity to see farmers and their water buffalos walk back home just before sunset. The location for the sunset was very relaxing and beautiful. We have sometime to walk around the rice paddy field and enjoying the view before we went back to return the quad bike. Highly recommended activity to see different part of Siem Reap!
