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.

Angkor Archaeological Park

This is the former capital of the Khmer Empire, which ruled this region between the 9th and 12th centuries. Angkor Archaeological Park evokes the rich historical, architectural and cultural past of the Khmers. The majestic Angkor complex offers temples galore, which are a marvel to explore. Each temple is unique, from the grandeur of Angkor Wat to the beauty of Bantey Srei, this dynastic ’village’ is spellbinding. You need a minimum of two days to explore. 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.

Do & See

Phnom Kulen National Park

To get to this national park, a toll fee per foreign person must be paid. This might seem unfair but it also contributes to the place not being so crowded by tourists. This place sits on some magical spots and rocks from the mountains has been used to build the temples of Angkor Wat. The water in the beautiful waterfall is also said to be holy and locals often bring a bottle of the water with them home. The road to the park is very narrow so it is only possible to go there before noon and you can not leave before after midday.
