About Siem Reap Destinations
The effervescent gateway town to the ancient temple complex is an enigma on its own and has built its own identity over the years. Siem Reap is made up with a perfect blend of euphoric and serene ambiance. There are vintage Indochina architectures, reminiscence of French colonialism, traditional Khmer souvenir shops selling equally traditional art and handicraft and Cambodian villages with their culture still embedded in the roots. On the other hand, Siem Reap reverberates with a certain vivacity both during the day and night time; Siem Reap tours, and the nightlife of the city can only be witnessed not imagined.
If Angkor Wat is the reason one is visiting Cambodia, then Siem Reap will be the first stepping stone in the way. Though most of the footfall in Siem Reap is still owed to the Angkor Wat Archaeological Park, Siem Reap, Cambodia has its own contribution to make.
Siem Reap Province of Cambodia borders the province of Oddar Meanchey to the north, Preah Vihear and Kampong Thom to the east, Battambang to the south and Banteay Meanchey to the west. The Tonle Sap freshwater lake demarcates Siem Reap in the south for a large part and remains seasonally inundated. This connects with the lower basin of Mekong River with a river of the same name and is home to an extensive biosphere reserve in this area. It is also where the floating village, the home to a Vietnamese neighborhood, floats.
The streets of the town bustle with the enthusiasm of temple visitors in the daytime. The mystifying appeal of Siem Reap Angkor Wat is the defining factor for Siem Reap tourism. In fact, the intricate stone bas-relief of the 12th-century temple is the central architecture in entire Cambodia. Its importance can be felt and understood in the fact that the flag of Cambodia has the figure of Angkor Wat right in the middle. The fort-city of Angkor Thom and the Bayon Temple, Ta Prohm and its crumbling yet visually intriguing exterior, Banteay Srei dedicated to Lord Shiva, Preah Khan, Bakong, Terrace of the Elephants, Terrace of the Leper King and dozens of other small and big shrines make up most of Siem Reap city travel. The night time is not a loss either. In fact, Siem Reap nightlife might be one of the liveliest one has ever seen. The lined up establishments of Pub Street and the Angkor Night Market make up for most of the nocturnal activities. Other offbeat but soul-feeding activities would be to see the Circus of Phare. Influenced by the Canadian Cirque de Soleil, this organization performs an enchanting mixture of acrobats, drama, and humor to tell heartwarming or heart-wrenching tales of life. Witnessing the local artisans create art and craft out of raw material, only using their hands and tools is another delightful experience. Seeing other artists at their work from up close, moreover trying to preserve a fading form of art and culture, which in this case is Khmer, is more rewarding than anything else. Moreover, most of these places like Angkor Handicraft Association or Angkor d’Artisans strive tirelessly towards the betterment and development of the local communities of workers, training new artists and giving them a chance at reviving their art as well as earning their living.

Trip to CambodiaMr. Sameer from Lotus Incoming was extremely supportive and accommodating, right from sending multiple quotes to arranging for everything needed to ensure that I was comfortable and safe throughout the trip, as I was a solo traveller. The guides of the day tours he had organized were a treasure trove of information and stories from Hindu mythology, which are essential for understanding the architecture of Angkorian temples. He personally organized last minute bookings of a microlight aviation and ziplining. Thank you Sameer for a memorable trip!

Trip to CambodiaSameer from Lotus Travels organised my itinerary perfectly in Cambodia. He was very flexible and patient in hearing all my queries. He also responded to my distress calls anytime of the day during the trip. Also, he was kind enough to meet us at Siem Reap since he was living there. The right activities for my back pack trip was suggested. Among all the quotes given, Lotus had the best deal and covered everything I needed. Would recommend this operator if you are travelling to other places as well.

Trip to Vietnam1. The arrangements in Cambodia and Vietnam are very good. But the Indian counterpart Travel triangle, New Delhi needs lot of improvement. 2. The system software used by the company is still to be developed. We do not know it is software design problem or yje people who have to maintain and update the data are at fault. it keeps on giving reminders for payment even after we have paid and got acknowledgements. The only reply by TT staff is " Dont worry, Ignore the reminders". 3. Even though it was a customized tour for us , the most interesting points were out of itenary for us. Like Buntey srei. 4. the arrangements for travel, hotel accommodation and guide services were very good. Food arrangements were Excellent. 5. Visiting High cost showrooms was not called for as we need to spend time usefully rather than spending at a plce where we dont make any purchases. It is loss of time for Tourists and the Showroom people. 6. Travel from Cambodia to Vietnam should have been planned by Air. Reason is the visa process in Airport is more Organised and faster. Also the time spent in travel and Waiting at Visa Counter in Custom check post was too much.
Trip to CambodiaWe have been Charged more than $780 per person for Trip. I have no respond from travel agent Praveen Pandey on this matter.
