Siem Reap Holidays

Ancient temples and ruins

Standing beneath the jungle-strangled temple of Ta Prohm or the holy mountain of Phnom Kulen you will see how well Cambodians combine spirituality with their culture. We love Siem Reap for its abundance of ancient temples and archaeological ruins. Whether you are visiting the visually and architecturally stunning Angkor ruins or the myriad of crumbling ancient ruins dotting the ubiquitous rice fields, holidays to Siem Reap are full of Cambodia's rich heritage and the legacy its history has left behind.

Siem Reap has some wonderful restaurants, my favourite is called Haven and it serves a mean Khmer curry.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average length of time is three days, but this is a vast temple complex spread over almost 400 square miles so you can also purchase seven day passes if you wish to go a little more in depth. The main and most famous temple is of course Angkor Wat but you should definitely also visit Angkor Thom, Ta Phrom, Banteay Srei and the Bayon Temples.

Siem Reap is a charming town with a lovely night market and flourishing dining scene. On an evening it is definitely worth having a wander around the night market followed by a nice meal and perhaps a nightcap at one of the lively bars on pub street. The Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary near Tonle Sap Lake is also worth a visit.
