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

Amazing location and an even better guide!

Rida (Pronounced Ree-da) was an AWESOME tour guide! He was able to discuss so much wonderful information about Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm, and the various other small temples/palaces we visited. He also talked about the rich culture of Cambodia. He was extremely personable, cordial, engaging, and friendly. His English was very good, too.

A look at the countryside on a motorbike

I haven't had much experience on motorbikes but thought of would like to give it a go, and see the Cambodian countryside too. The bike was semi automatic. It was easy enough to get on with. We saw how poor people lived and worked. Stopped to watch baskets being made. Stopped regularly so we could have a drink. The guide was knowledgeable not bad English. The tour was three hours, and I enjoyed it.

Bun's an amazing guide with 20 yrs experience couldnt have been better

We went to Angkor Wat, then Angkor Thom, then Ta Prohm, with breakfast and lunch stops along the way. Bun was a fantastic guide, and new a bunch of good spots we're we could still get great vantage points and photos and avoid the throngs of tourists. He was highly knowledgeable about each site and gave us plenty of fascinating information about each of the temples. All up it took about 8 hours with a 5am pickup. This was the best thing I've done in my 3-week trip to Cambodia. Also great value - I recommend it to everyone!

Our Guide Vy was personable, knowledgeable and professional

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.
