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
I enjoyed my stay at Siem Reap and would definitely recommend Sarati (guide) who is English speaking to my friends and family.
On this tour you get a very good view of how many Cambodiam people live,very poor but happy.The tour guide was excellent answering all the questions asked in very good English.A tour not to be missed.
Very knowledgeable and willing to let me determine time mgmt sine it was a private. He's a fantastic guy.
An excellent experience from beginning to end. We were greeted by our server for the evening and led down the tiki lit path. We were given a welcome drink, introduced to the chef and the entertainer, then led to our table, just the 2 of us over a lotus pond. The table and area lit by candles, sounds of fish jumping and frogs, smell of the dishes, and tastes of the food were all perfect for the senses. The timing between courses was perfect, and our server was always checking our wine from a distance that was not intrusive to our privacy. The food was cooked to perfection. I wanted to chew each bite longer to savor the amazing taste. At the end of our dinner, we were escorted back through the path to our transportation to return us to the hotel.
Our tour guide took us through the different temples. He was very knowledgable. There is a lot to choose from visiting Angor Wat and Angor Tom, our guide was really good at offering different options for us. The more than 12 hour tour went by very quickly, our guide was very accomodating. Furthermore the guide was really passionate about the past and present Khmer history, adding on to the experience. All in all a very clever way of seeing the many highlights here.
