Top Tours & Activities in Siem Reap
This beautiful resort town is the perfect place to visit when in Cambodia, and a great place to stay when touring local Buddhist monuments. There's so much to see and do, but here are our top tips!
This interesting (and slightly bizarre) theme park assembles miniatures of famous historical buildings and structures of Cambodia, grouped into 11 villages.
One of many great Buddhist temples in the region, this artificial island is one of the more breathtaking!
This little (well not so little) oasis is a reservoir built by 10th Century Buddhists and is a tranquil tourist spot.
One of the most interesting and larger Buddhist monastic complexes in the region!
A magical place to visit, this largely unrestored temple is a mixture of beautiful architecture, now being reclaimed by the jungle around it.
One of the region's Hindu temples and a world heritage site.
Although slightly out of the way, when touring the temples of the region, this is one you don't want to miss.
One of the more impressive and larger temple complexes in the area, and a popular spot for some Hollywood blockbusters.
Another beautifully decorated and monumental temple in the region.
This is the largest religious monument in the world, and well worth taking a tour of.
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!
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
Thanks to our great guide Lot, a perfect organisation including breakfast, lunch and riding though lonely paths in the jungle, good places to see the sunrise and the beauty of the temples by avoiding the crowds, good quality bikes, a good blend of history and fun.. we could not have enjoyed it more. Highly recommended and wothwhile going up early!
Vy, our guide was fantastic. He knew every corner of angkor (a massive ancient city, so no mean feat), was accommodating to us and our 5 year old daughter. and was an extremely personable and professional guide. if you only have one day, i'd definitely recommend Vy and the team.
Our guide Chan was awesome. Informative, warm and a great photographer. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
It was a very real cambodjian experience, the guide was so kind and take the pictures I couldn't take during the cerimony. The opportunity to experience this blessing is, in itself, amazing, but the professional way it happen on the sense it was a tour, it really helped feeling that I was living a special moment!
It was a great tour! The guide was very kind and knowledgeable and had a good sense of timing. For me, I would have liked a bit more time on my own to explore on my own at each place. But has I intended to get back to some of the temples by remork it was alright
