Tourist Places In Siem Reap

The temple of Angkor Wat is the main reason why Cambodia gets hundreds of travelers every season, and Siem Reap is the perfect stepping stone on the way towards the temple. This beautiful resort-town located in the northwest of Cambodia is in itself quite a treat, and people have started to appreciate that of late. So, Siem Reap not only gets the Angkor Wat enthusiasts but thrives with a whole lot of tourists wanting to explore its own treasure trove.

Here are the different places to visit in Siem Reap. Though Angkor Wat still tops the list, there are other, lesser known places as well.

1. Angkor Wat Temple

Angkor Wat Temple stands as the main structure within the largest religious complex in the world. Built in dedication to Lord Vishnu initially by Khmer King Suryavarman, the temple was later transformed into a Buddhist shrine by the end of 12th century.  The French explorer who first discovered the site for the knowledge of the modern world describes it as something grander than the Greek or Roman architectures, which already explains the magnificence of Angkor Wat fortified with thick walls, protected by a moat and shrouded with a wild mystery. This temple is the topmost attraction in the Angkor Archaeological Park and also the emblem of the country. Angkor Wat has its place right in the middle of the Cambodian flag.

2. Angkor Thom and the Bayon Temple

Angkor Thom was the flourishing capital city of the Khmer ruler Jayavarman VII. It lies to the north of Angkor Wat and has several temples and monuments that bear marks of his Mahayana Buddhism faith. The Bayon temple is the most famous one of the lot, with 216 gargantuan faces of the Avalokiteshwara manifestation of Buddha. The extraordinary bas-reliefs attract tourists from far and near to witness the grandeur of Angkor Thom and Bayon temple with their own eyes.

3. Ta Prohm

Ta Prohm looks exactly like an ancient site out of an Indiana Jones movie – with ages-old secrets hidden within its crumbling walls, somehow held together by the entwining, muscular tree-roots. In fact, it was used as a location for the movie Tomb Raider. Because of its one-of-a-kind visual appeal as well for the spine-chilling atmosphere, Ta Prohm is a must-see on every Siem Reap traveler’s checklist.  

4. Angkor National Museum

While a visit to the temples will give a perfect visual image of some of the greatest and grandest temples of the world, the museum will help understand their history and architecture better. Angkor National Museum will help one wrap their head around the Angkorian past, Khmer and the other different empires, their affiliations to Hinduism and Buddhism and their culture surrounding the temples they built. There are informative board, artifacts on display and audio-visual presentations for better understanding.

5. Landmine Museum and School

A little bit away from the heart of the town, the Landmine Museum and School is a completely different type of site than the temples and old cities – but certainly worth it. It tells the stories of Cambodia that none wants to tell, nor does anyone want to hear – the tales of war and bloodshed left behind by the Khmer Rouge forces and Vietnamese forces. It highlights the efforts going on at the borders where there are still landmines under the ground causing mishaps every other day. Founded by a former soldier Aki Ra, it is a place of reflection and contemplation about the place one has come to travel. There is also a Child Relief Centre for the locals where one can contribute.

These were some of the top tourist attractions in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

    Thank you Hannah & Shubham for all the planning that went into this trip. Both were very prompt with messages and calls.. The drivers on the trip were very punctual always came in 15 mins before the given time which was really good as we didnt have to wait or call anyone. The package itself was very good. We changed it so many times but both Hannah and Shubham were very patient. All in all we had a very good trip. So thank you!

    Chinmay's 15 days trip to Siem Reap

    Well my testimonial matters the most because i am a hardcore critic when it comes to services. I was very skeptical while dealing with LVP Travels since i had read so many kinds of reviews online during my research and finalization. During my process of planning, i got lot of help from Jenny and she was very kind and happy to help. When i finally decided to go ahead with Jenny's company, i still had my doubts if the services will be delivered accurately without any hiccups. But I would say, Jenny did a commendable job in arrangement of the tour. She was in touch all through and wherever there were challenges she found out the way to deal with those to make my tour a memorable one. Just to mention, i had lots of discussions, agreements, disagreements with Jenny, but in the end the service was nice. Jenny you have earned this testimonial. Looking forward for more such associations.

    It was an awesome experience! All arrangements were as per itinerary promised. All pickups and activities were on dot time as mentioned. Henry, travel associate from S VIet was in constant touch and always available for any additional information or help. We were in good hands and good care was taken. Must say impressed and delighted with flawless planning. 10 on 10 for activities and accommodation, travel arrangements. I strongly recommend, if you are travelling Vietnam it has to be Travel Traingle and S VIet (Now Realistic Asia). I will definitely give first preference for my future holidays.

    Prerna Gurkin

    Kolkata

    Prerna's 8 days trip to Siem Reap

    Thank you Bamboo Hat Tours. My friend and I went to Cambodia and Vietnam. Just returned on the 12th. Sophie was really hands on. She coordinated everything perfectly and was just a call away. The hotels were very comfortable and the guides (The only guide with the red hat in Cambodia, Thom [May have got the name incorrect but she is 24 with a kid and fiercely independent for someone from her clan] in Sapa Valley and Tom at Halong Bay) were extremely efficient, helpful, and they put things across to us in simple, understandable english, which is a feat as english isn't their mother tongue and as guides who barely make 250 dollars a month during peak season, we were apperciative of the effort that they put in. I had read a lot on Angkor Wat, Sapa Valley and Halong Bay but what these guides told us was nothing short of a treasure trove of knowledge- straight from the horses' mouths, in this case, native Cambodians and Vietnamese. The staff at the hotels ((Mekong Angkor Palace, Diamond Legend Hotel, Apricot Cruise and Beautiful Sapa Hotel) were so so helpful as well. Everyone, including the lovely Pho lady and family beside Diamong Legend Hotel, was kind and uber hospitable. We are now planning a trip with Bamboo Hat for next April (Loas and Myanmar)...so will be contacting Sophie again. Why? Cause she and everyone associated with Bamboo Hat are damn good..thats why. :)

    Jharna's 7 days trip to Siem Reap

    It was a very well planned trip which covered all that we wanted ... my agent Shubham and Vicky (in Vietnam) were super promt and extremely efficient with everything .. overall we had an amazing time with no false promises or additional costs... only the 31st cruise party was disappointing and not as expected... also in Bana hills it was raining heavily (which we were not informed about) and so we couldn't do anything much and the day was almost wasted... MUA CAVES Exploring Hanoi Night market and DaNang adventure park was a lot of fun
