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.

Naveen Cheemangala Shivashankar
Naveen's 11 days trip to Siem ReapIt was a very well organized trip ,just love it , didn't face any problem s anywhere during the ten days of stay at Vietnam and cambodia
Natarajan Vikram Raj
Natarajan's 14 days trip to Siem ReapMy experience with travel triangle and LVP has been very good we booked a ten day tour for Vietnam and four days in Cambodia. From initial package negotiation stage Karan from Travel triangle was very helpful he got us a good price. The only issue being we had to book our own flight tickets too Vietnam and the return from Cambodia to India, as we found travel triangle to be more expensive. Immediately a whatsapp group was formed Jenny, Thuy & Karan we were able to get all our doubts cleared quickly and we made a few changes to the tour package. Prior too and through out the tour the response on Whatsapp group was excellent. Once the tour started everything went like clock work right from pick up from airport to hotel and tour guides were on time. We had a great trouble free holiday ..
Sunil Sudhakar Dhulekar
Sunil's 3 days trip to Siem ReapLVP did a fantastic job of arranging a very memorable customised trip. The food was excellent both at Halong Bay & Siem Reap as well as the guides during the various trips. Have already recommended to my other friends.
Palivela's 6 days trip to Siem ReapHotels in both cities are low in standards by means of poor room quality and also very limited selection of breakfast. Hotels needs to be changed.
Santhosh Devadas Mallya
Santhosh's 8 days trip to Siem ReapOverall, had a pretty good trip of Vietnam & Cambodia with family with assistance from Ms. Megha of Travel Triangle and Ms. Sophie from Bamboo Hat tours. A few suggestions for improvement: 1) Maintain punctuality for pick up for daily tours 2) Surprisingly, basic necessity when it is hot outside, a bottles of plain drinking water of 330 ml are charged exorbitantly at shops in Vietnam and Cambodia. Suggest ensure that at least 2 bottles of water per person are provided during whole day tour. 3) Found cost of food items and articles (eg. bamboo fabric) sold at some of the places visited during the sight seeing tour are too high. We ended up, paying approx. 3 times the normal price for a bamboo fabric shawl. Suggest warn the tourists to avoid getting looted. 4) Though guides speak English, the drivers who come to pick and drop don't. At Hanoi, returning from Halong Bay, we were asked to get down at a wrong place far away from our hotel. Had a tough time showing our right hotel on the map and explaining to the driver. 5) The vehicle for about 4 hours drive from Halong Bay to Hanoi had very narrow seats. A larger vehicle with broader seats would make the journey comfortable. 6) Ensure bookings are confirmed and held valid by the hotels and customers are provided the same class of rooms booked or promised. This may cause lot of inconvenience to tourists, especially during peak season. We had some problems at Hanoi.
Geeta Ramakant Manjrekar
Geeta's 7 days trip to Siem ReapI am so happy I chose travel triangle and Insight Asia travel for my trip to Vietnam. Both Shubham and Victoria did their best by accomodating all my requests for hotel changes and were always there just a watsapp message away. I will be planning my trip again with these guys because I am so impressed with their hardwork and supporting nature. Thank you so much for the lovely trip. Anyone out there reading my review just go ahead and book and you wont regret it.
Rajiv's 10 days trip to Siem ReapThe agent was super efficient and very responsive. She worked our tour very well and kept us well informed. Only on the last day, drop to the airport was very very bad. The driver I think was drunk and he was shouting something at us at the airport. Could not make out what he was saying and why he was shouting.
