Visit Siem Reap

Siem Reap is a bustling town in northwest Cambodia on the edge of the Tonle Sap Lake. It acts as the jumping off point to visit the majestic Angkor Archaeological Park, which includes the famous Angkor Wat temple complex. The park is expansive, and it normally requires several days to fully experience. However, there are a host of other things to see and do in the area, including countryside tours, visiting local markets, day trips to Phnom Kulen National Park and boat trips to floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake. This travel guide will answer all of your questions about traveling to Siem Reap, Angkor Archaeological Park and other popular destinations in Cambodia.
