Best Sightseeing Tours in Siem Reap

Siem Reap is synonymous with the grand Angkor Wat. Offering the best sightseeing tours in Siem Reap, go temple touring to the largest temple site in the world. Alternatively, hop over to Phnom Bakeng and Ta-Prohm. Ta-Prohm, popular as the Tomb raider tomb, is dotted by enormous, gangly Banyan trees. Unleash your inner photographer at the pink-hued Hindu temple of Banteay Srei. Learn about the Khmer royals at the Angkor National Musuem. Take a boat ride and embark upon quaint floating villages called Chong Khneas, with houses resting on stilts. Go on an adventure to Beng Mealea, which is the quiet, sandstone brother of Ta-Prohm. Take a tuk-tuk ride around town or better yet, cycle your way through the Angkor labyrinth. A crazy alternative is to book a bat-mobile, which is a batman-inspired tuk-tuk. If you’re worn out from all the sightseeing, take a quick massage at a local spa.

 

Go exotic bird-watching at the Prek Toal Bird Sanctuary, by the Tonle Sap Lake. Spend a balmy evening at Srah Srang, watching the setting sun’s reflection in the adjacent waters. Have a native Khmer curry at Red Piano and get drunk at Angkor What? on Pub Street. Later head over to the vibrant Night Market in the vicinity. Watch a busy artist at work at the Angkor Handicraft Association’s Village Fair Trade and buy an authentic souvenir from here. All proceeds from this fair go to the artisans’ foundation. Cambodia is teeming with fruit markets. Buy some pineapple, or mangosteen from a colourful bazaar in Psas Chas. Don’t pack your bags until you have gone one of the best sightseeing tours in Siem Reap to the bizarre Landmine Museum, which holds landmines and tanks from the Khmer Rouge, 1975 and Vietnamese Occupation of 1979.
