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.

    • Trip to Siem Reap

      Sameer from Lotus Incoming was easily contactable when needed. He made all efforts to ensure I had a comfortable stay in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. He personally came to receive me at the Siem Reap airport. The hotels he arranged for were top class and the tour guide in Siem Reap (Smith Chau) and the driver (Mav) were excellent. The car qualify was excellent too. I had a very pleasant trip overall and would highly recommend them,

    • Trip to Vietnam

      Had a good trip overall but had some issues: 1) Our flight booking done by Traveltriangle for BOM BKK sector, seats blocked were right infront of washroom and so was not total reclining and full of disturbances. For BKK BOM sector flight seats blocked all the way at the back thereby taking us time to board and deboard. If we had not blocked seats we may have for better seats. We had not asked for Hindu meals on flight but was served on all sectors baring BOM BKK sector as we had asked them to cancel. The flight from Hanoi to Siem Rep was late by more than 2 hours and we spend half day at airport. That flight ( Vietjet) has a reputation of being late and we repented being booked on it as whole day was wasted and we ended up reaching hotel by 11 pm. 2) Hotel experience was fairly good. At Hanoi the room allocated with triple bed was small and lacking proper seating arrangement. Overall staff very curious and breakfast okay although lacking variety for Veg and non pork beef eaters. Hotel at Siem Rep (Ankor Holiday Hotel) was not at all as expected. Although supposedly four star it lacked proper attitude of staff and general hygiene and cockroaches running all around room and washroom. On first day air conditioning not working on one room and staff refused to give us another room. Had to settle with a fan.in room instead. They were not accommodating at all. 3) Guides in both countries were knowledgeable and understanding. They took good care of us and our food. 4) We got email / call on last day regarding our insurance option for trip. If they had contacted us earlier we would not have to run around. We got all documents just before we left for airport which was very rushed. 5) Our advisor Karan took lot of time to sort out payment issues with overseas travel agent and we had to continuously follow up to make sure our trip would not get cancelled inspite of making payments on time. Our time in Hanoi which included the overnight Boat trip was definitely the best.moments. Siem Rep was a disappointment due to rushed up itenarary.

      Ours was 7 day trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. Our travel guide Sophie organised it brilliantly. She was always in touch through Whatsapp and always provided tips and responded to queries immediately. Thanks Sophie for making our trip a memorable one!!

    • Trip to Vietnam

      Trip was well planned and lot of effort was taken by the agent to make us comfortable. Just one request try and get more well informed guides in Siam Reap. Also appreciate if the agent can give us updates on pick up time, guide name etc a day before instead of constantly asking for information since connectivity becomes an issue in many places
