Located in north western Cambodia, Siem Reap has long been considered as a convenient gateway to the Angkor region and its numerous temples. Once belonging to the Khmer Empire from the 9th to the 15th century, the temples of Angkor offer fascinating insight into Seim Reap and Cambodia's history.
The most popular attraction within the Angkor Archaeological Park is the Angkor Wat, a large temple spanning five towers covered in intricate carvings representing Hindu mythology. With a rectangular wall measuring 1025 by 800 meters, the temple is one of the largest religious monuments in the world.
It is here you can climb the Angkor Wat and see scenes that feature in the movie Tomb Raider. Other temples worth exploring include the Angkor Thom, the Roluos group and the outlying temples. Numerous tours reach the temples, offering a variety of routes and sites to suit all travelers.
Back in town, the city of Siem Reap is alive with action and energy, particularly in Psar Chaa, also known as the Old Market. Though over the years this area has become westernized with restaurants and backpacker bars, the area is also home to interesting wet markets touting local product, crafts and souvenirs.
For a taste of unique culture, just outside of Seim Reap are the floating villages of Chong Kneas. Floating along the Tonle Sap Lake, these villages include floating houses, floating schools, fish farms and even crocodile farms. Join a tourist boat and learn more about how the villages operate.
