Information about Siem Reap
Before traveling, it is wise to consult a Siem Reap travel guide to know the basic points that a tourist needs to keep in mind. Here is all the essential Siem Reap information for traveling purpose.
Siem Reap Weather:
Siem Reap experiences the best weather conditions from November to April. This is the so-called winter time, but the temperature does not go chilly because of its tropical climate. The average temperature throughout the year remains at around 25°C-30°C. However, the humidity is low, and the weather is dry, which makes this time the perfect for a visit to Cambodia and Siem Reap. Being far away from the sea in the north-west also gives the advantage of lesser humidity than the eastern and southern parts of the country. The summer and the monsoon months from May to September are usually hot and humid. December and January are the best months for Siem Reap city tour, thanks to the pleasant climate.
Siem Reap Nightlife:
Siem Reap is known for its vibrant nightlife. While the mornings and days are gone traveling from temples to museums and galleries to more temples, the nights in Siem Reap come alive with a vivid exuberance of sorts. Getting to know some Siem Reap information before getting to the place is essential. The Pub Street is the place to be to enjoy the best of Siem Reap’s nightlife. The traditional neighborhood of pubs, bars, and nightclubs are lined with decked up locations one after the other. Angkor What?, The Picasso Bar, Mezze Loungebar and Nightclub, Linga Bar, Barcode, Silk Garden, Miss Wong – all of these are among the heavily frequented ones. The scope of nightlife is not constricted to bars only. The Angkor Night Market is an exciting place to be after sundown, with hundreds of bamboo huts giving the tourists the best indigenous retail therapy of life. Get a Siem Reap travel guide to know more about such places.
Siem Reap Food:
Cambodian cuisine is one of the most unique and unconventional ones one will ever come across. Being a south-east Asian country, it certainly has the flavors common to this area. But Siem Reap adds a flavor of its own, whether one tries out the roadside stalls, the motorcycle vendors or the top-end restaurants and bars. Amok Fish is the number one culinary treat here. It is fish cooked in coconut milk and delicious spices, made into a smooth curry and served in banana leaves or coconut bowls. Another delicacy is the green mango salad made with sweet and tart green mango tossed with herbs, spices, and sauces. Bamboo sticky rice and Nom Banh Chok noodles are two savories made from staples, while crispy-outside-soft-inside Khmer cakes and the energy-boosting thick jaggery soup are for those with a sweet tooth. Another out-of-the-world delicacy of Siem Reap is its fried insects, tarantulas and ants, which might not be for everyone’s palate. But, if one has a thing for trying out anything and everything, one must go for it.
Siem Reap Shopping:
Most of the shopping scene in Siem Reap is attributed to the indigenous crafts. The Angkor Night Market, Angkor Handicraft Association, Made in Cambodia, the old market Psar Chas – all of these are within a few kilometer radii in Siem Reap region, catering to the impulsive shopping of the tourists. From local trinkets and souvenirs to ornate art items, paintings and sculptures, small handicraft items, big home décor items, jewelry, scarves, and stoles – the list of things to hoard are endless. Shopping in Siem Reap is a vivid experience in itself.
Siem Reap Festivals:
Some festivals in Siem Reap correspond with the larger culture of the local ethnicities and their traditions like the Chinese and Khmer New Year, and there are some others which are unique to the place. Sea Festival devoted to the Sea Gods, Village Blessing Festival for the celebration of harvest, Water and Moon Festival, Kathen Buddhist Festival in the Cambodian pagodas are a few of the many. Siem Reap travel tips from guides can help the tourists know how to carry themselves during the festivals.
