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 experience, the tour guide Lee was excellent

The tour guide Lee was amazing! Explained carefully how to do the ceremony. The water ceremony was spiritual and refreshing! The monks were very nice and patience while i was trying to do it right. Lee took pictures and answered any questions. Great experience!

A great way to see the country and the people of Cambodia

Let me start by saying I had never been on a motorbike before. Ever. The guide, Scott, literally taught me everything I know about motorbikes, and I had a great trip through the countryside of Cambodia. Plus, I did not fall off the bike or run into anything, which I consider a pretty good first ride. You see so much more on a bike, and can stop to take in the view or meet the local people. We visited a country house, a local pagoda, and passed some beautiful fields and scenery.

A very well explained tour of Traditional Khmer Village Life

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Lee explained to me that the villages were looked after by a NGO (Husk) who had set up schools, medical facilities, recycling of water bottles which they fill and make into the walls of the houses, he showed me many of the new initiatives they are making to improve the lives of the people. The tour company itseld makes a donation from all revenue to help the Khmer village people. Lee, my excellemt tour guide, was happy to answer my many questions and was very professional and respectful. He has a good university education and is very informativd yet sensitive to the lives, rituals and beliefs of the people. Don't use any other guide then him; he is the best I have found and I have travelled to Cambodia 5 times and spent much time here, so I do know! It was wonderful walking through the villages; meeting & talking with elders and the lovely smiling young children. We also learnes about thwir agricultural life, their spiritual beliefs; why homes on stilts
2 Hour+ Cambodian Village Walking Tour from Siem Reap Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 06/25/2016

Incredible tour even though we were not able to see the sunset.

Both the driver and tour guide were amazing (Kongkea and Roma). I was by myself and taken to the most incredible places. Kongkea is extremely knowledgeable and has a warm and friendly personality. He really did go to great lengths to ensure the tour was memorable. The day was clouded over so we were not able to do the sunset part but as I was by myself on the tour Kongkea took me to a local food market and a water blessing ceremony with a Buddhist Monk. This trip is something I will never forget and my photo's are truly amazing. It was a hot hot day in April but I would not have missed this tour for the world.

Fantastic way to see the countryside and the real Cambodia

I absolutely loved this tour. The guide was wonderful and the pictures I have are phenomenal. I never would have been able to get these on my own. The guide was very knowledgeable and very safety conscious. I cannot recommend this tour enough. I am over 50 and felt secure and comfortable.
