Top attractions 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
Tann knows so many good stories and he is superkind and funny!! The Tour was really amazing, we enjoyed a lot!
The tour guide Phi was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The air conditioned van was very welcome and the driver, Mong, ensured we always had plenty of cold water and our journeys were comfortable. Would recommend this tour to everyone. I was a solo traveller joining a group of 6 and it was a wonderful day.
They graciously stopped at a 7-11 for me on the way out, and that was an absolute life savor.
Very well organised, easy to book, and visited the 3 temples we were keen on seeing. Picked us up and dropped us off at our hotels. The guide was very informative with s sense of humour .
This trip is well worth the money,you get to see most of the temples plus you really get to see how the people live in the villages of siem reap and its surrounding areas,we were brought places that you wouldn't even go on a motorbike,if you are up for an adventure in the jungle then this is the one for you,our guide was CHHAN who was great on the day plus we had two jeeps as there was 5 of us,i recommend this to anyone but bring old clothes with you as the red dust from the off roads will get everywhere,it does get very hot and there is a lot crammed into the day with a very nice air conditioned lunch near the temples
