Holidays to Siem Reap
Located on the border of the world famous UNESCO world heritage site, Angkor Archaeological Park, a holiday at Siem Reap, Cambodia is a perfect place to stay while exploring this world wonder.
Ancient remains on holiday in Siem Reap
The Angkor Archaeological Park contains the remains of the ancients from several capitals of the Khmer Empire. Stretching over 400 square kilometres the park requires many days to explore all of the various ruins, and not to mention extensive forests. When visiting the park you can get a multiday pass that will allow you to setup base in Siem Reap and then have daily excursions into the massive park. Depending on your preference there are many ways for you to explore. You can hire anything from bus tours, electric cars, or even helicopter rides. The massive scale of the park can often overwhelm visitors, but take in each historic site and don't give up; you can always sleep when you are back in Siem Reap.
While most visitors on holiday in Siem Reap head straight to the Angkor Archaeological Park there are plenty of notable sights to see in the city itself. The Angkor National Museum has fascinating exhibitions about the history of the Angkor complex including the illusive 1000 Buddha’s room. In contrast to all of the historical sights that Siem Reap has to offer, there are many new Buddhist temples, such as the Wat Preah Prom Rath, where you can get a glimpse into how Buddhist temples are built today.
There are many places to have a cheap yet tasty meal while on holiday in Siem Reap. Many people's first instinct is to head to the pub street, where you will find plenty of bars and places to spend the night having a few drinks, however for a more interesting dining experience head toward the old market area. For the more adventurous traveller, wait until the sun is setting and head to the Kindergarten on the corner of Street 8 and 11, which doubles as a BBQ stand afterhours.
