Attractions in Cambodia and around Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers many other attractions besides Angkor Wat and the other temple complexes.

For example, for those interested in culture, a visit to the Angkor National Museum or the Landmine Museum is worthwhile. But also the many small traditional markets are worth a look.

Our recommendation: Be sure to visit the entire archaeological park around Angkor Wat (especially Ta Prohm), Beng Mealea, Koh Ker and Phnom Kulen.

Around Siem Reap, the largest lake in Southeast Asia, Tonle Sap, awaits you. Near the lake, you can also visit the fishing village Kampong Phlouk.

In the province – a little further from the city – there is also Phnom Kulen (“Mount” Kulen) with its temple ruins and its pagoda (current temple used by monks) or Beng Mealea (an impressive overgrown temple complex) to visit.

In Siem Reap province there is also something very special next to Angkot Wat: the temple pyramid Koh Ker.

A little further away, in Anlong Veng, you will find the Tamok House, which served as headquarters during the Khmer Rouge period.

The nightlife in Siem Reap is mainly characterized by Pub Street. For tourists, there are many other smaller attractions and tours.

In addition to guided mountain bike tours, bicycles can also be rented at many places for a fee.

Tip: Never pawn your passport.
