Do & See
Even if Siem reap isn't a big city it has a lot to offer. Be inspired by the Apsara dancing, Khmer traditional art and by ancient temples surrounded by ancient trees in an eloquent collaboration between art and nature. Transportation is readily available so feel free to visit whatever is on offer, as nothing is too far or too hard to access. The entrance to the Angkorian temple complex is just a simple drive away on a road magnificently lined with ancient trees. At night this small town lightens up as people relax after a long day visiting the temples. The atmosphere around the Old Market is pleasant and calm, it’s the perfect place to get lost in what Cambodia has to offer.

As the temples are spread out, transportation is required. Bicycles, motorbikes, tuk-tuks and air-conditioned cars are at your disposal. Guides can be sought through most hotels and guesthouses.
