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.

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

There aren't too many non-stop flights from Indian airports to Siem Reap airport, and they usually have a layover in another city before coming to the Siem Reap International Airport in Cambodia. There are more and more flights now due to the burgeoning tourism Industry in the current world. There are layovers in Singapore and Bangkok commonly before passengers then fly from Bangkok to Siem Reap. The flights take a varied amount of time to reach Siem Reap depending on which different part of India it is from, with an average time of 6 hours and 40 minutes for most of the flights.

By Train

Siem Reap is not devoid of rail lines altogether, and Cambodia is connected to Malaysia and Thailand via railways, but when it comes to traveling by train directly from one of the Indian cities to Siem Reap, it is not possible. There are alternative possibilities for those who want to attempt the journey to travel to Thailand or Malaysia and then take the trains from there.

While all three options are viable, the effort involved in all but one of the options make them more difficult. Traveling by air to Siem Reap remains the best option for tourists as they can take Hyderabad to Siem Reap and other alternative flights available to have an easy journey to the city instead of taking so many days. By availing flights, they can arrive at their destination in less than half the time, with flights taking 6 hours and 45 minutes on an average. Thus, flights from India to Siem Reap remain the best option for the travelers.

By Road

Traveling from India to Cambodia's Siem Reap city is not an experience that too many should opt for. The distance itself is a huge reason that many people turn away from the prospect of traveling for that long. The distance from most of the cities in India to Siem Reap is almost more than 5000 kilometers by road, making for more than a 100 hours of travel before you can reach your destination. The cost of fuel involved in traveling so long is high as well, and that added to the fact that traveling by road is dangerous, turns many people away from undertaking the journey by road. To travel via road, there are multiple country borders that need to be crossed including Thailand and Myanmar before finally crossing into Cambodia and Siem Reap City. Siem Reap's Angkor Wat proximity is one of the reasons that people attempt to make such an arduous journey.
