51 Popular Attractions in Siem Reap

The temple complex known as Angkor Wat, is so much more than most people expect and it is serviced by the town of Siem Reap.

Top Attractions

Angkor Wat is the best known of the temples in the area, possibly because, unlike most of the others, Angkor Wat has never been forgotten and left to disappear into the jungle and become ruins. It may have dropped off the European map, but the Cambodians still celebrated and worshipped there. Sunrise and sunset are considered special times for photographic opportunities.

Other Temples

Angkor Thom is the old capital city of the Kymer people and it contains a number of other amazing attractions in the complex. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are in the same vicinity, and can be viewed together easily. Other temples are further apart and a tuk-tuk is needed to transport you between sites. Generally, tourists choose to see the temples in two sections, the Big Tour and the Small Tour. These names relate to the length of the tour not the number of temples. There are many temples and it takes a number of days to see even a few of them. Some special temples are Ta Prohm, still over-run by the trees of the jungle and Neak Pean, with a bridge across a lake to the ruins.

Day Tours

Other than the temples, Cambodia has lots to offer. Try going to a street market and eating frogs, insects, snakes or tarantulas! Go to the Floating Village or catch a boat down to Phnom Penh. Get out into the countryside and taste the palm sugar, watch the people planting rice, or check out some of the orphanages that sell craft that the children make.
