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

Really experienced the local Cambodian life

The trip was great! Our guide was very friendly and funny. We visited a local primary school and a local market during our bicycle tour, these where my favourites. The afternoon program with the floating village was also very nice. I really felt like I experienced the local Cambodian life for 1 day. We didn't see any other tourist the whole day!
Siem Reap Full-Day Countryside Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/15/2016

Reda our guide talked us round 5 temples brilliantly.

Our driver and guide arrived on time, brought us for entry tickets avoiding the queues and placed us in best spot for the sunrise on Angkor Wat. We wanted to get the most out of our day and visited five temples getting as much information on each as we wanted from our guide. Our driver provided cool water and ferried us between the sites. There were three in our group so all had time to ask questions. A fabulous day out . Thanks to Reda we have lovely memorable pictures of the trip.
Private Guide: 1-Day Tour to Angkor Wat Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/13/2016

A great way to see another side of Angkor Wat away from the crowds

I had an amazing time on this tour. The guide was great and the service was second to none. The riding was occasionally challenging but ok for almost any fitness level. Highly recommended.

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.
