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.


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

A fantastic tour, insightful, varied and deeply interesting

Thank you Chomnan, you were a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and easy going. I highly recommend taking this tour if you want to understand the meaning of this beautiful landmark. Without a guided tour, it would be very difficult to see everything, Chomnan helped us get some magnificent photos

Dedicated group of young people towards the arts

It's not just a circus show, it's a theatrical performance with good storyline, told by a group of young people who put in their 110% to give a good show. The synergy of the troupe was faultless.
