Adventure Activities Siem Reap
An iconic retreat town in northwest Cambodia, Siem Reap finds itself right in the center of the country’s tourism. Being the gateway city to the world-famous, legendary temple of Angkor Wat, what to do in Siem Reap in 3 days is a question not a lot of people worry about. So even after the travellers are done with the traditional visits to the temples, there are still places to discover, diners to eat in and shops to indulge in retail therapy.
Here are the different things to do in Siem Reap for those who want, a complete experience of the lovely town.
1. Enjoy the circus - Phare Ponleu Selpak
Not the first thing one expects on a foreign country trip, but the circus show of Phare Ponleu Selpak is not to be missed. It is one of the best things to do in Siem Reap at night, once the temple visits are over. The famous spectacle tells a fascinating story through acrobatics, trapeze, music, dance, drama, comedy and an eclectic range of performing arts for a couple of hours to entertain guests. What makes it more impressive is that the establishments hire performers straight out of their own performing arts school where they provide an opportunity for education and future employment for unprivileged children. The show brings a perfect mix of traditional Khmer style weaved into a contemporary flavor to it, as popularised by the famous Cirque du Soleil of Canada.
2. Take zip line tour – Flight of the Gibbon
Within the Angkor National Park, there is an exciting, adrenaline-pumping zip line tour by Flight of the Gibbon that takes you over the jungle canopy through ten zip lines. The two-hour course covers four hanging sky-bridges, a fifty-meter abseil, and 21 platform stations. Staying true to its name, there might be a possibility of spotting a few gibbons as well. Lunch is served as a part of the tour. This must be on one’s itinerary if one is looking for things to do in Siem Reap in 2 days.
3. See and shop true Angkor Handicraft
Angkor Handicraft Association has set up its whole organization to be a non-profit, where all the proceeds go for supporting the local community and for sustaining the indigenous art and craft. Visitors can see for themselves in the Fair Trade Village how the local artisans handcraft the artifacts with care and devotion. Bags, jewelry, scarves, decorative items, paintings – everything here is made from scratch with the labor and sweat of the local craftspeople. Shopping in Siem Reap is an amazing experience in itself.
4. Get a fish pedicure
If this activity sounds new and crazy, then you have been missing out on the latest obsession in beauty care – the fish pedicure. Small fish are used in this pedicure, and they nibble off the dead skin of the feet. It might feel uncomfortable, to begin with, if someone is doing it for the first time, but once it grows on, the experience is quite quirky yet refreshing. The Temple Town is full of such fish pedicure spas for both men and women. When one wonders what to do in Siem Reap in 3 days, one can add this to their to-do list.
5. Ride the hot air balloon over Angkor Wat
Hot air balloon ride in Siem Reap are of two types – one stays tethered to a point and offers a solo angular view of the Angkor Wat, another takes you around the city of Siem Reap stopping at abrupt points, providing a wider, breathtakingly beautiful view of Cambodia’s heart. If the temple and its surrounding greenery looked majestic from down below, it would look surreal from up in the sky on a giant hot air balloon. It is one of the best things one can do as Siem Reap adventure activities.

Trip to CambodiaWe were told that we have 30 kg allowance for both international flights to and from India but thai airways has changed it to 20 kg which we were not aware of.It was a messy tensed situation at the airport since we had shopped at Bangkok and our luggage was exceeding 20 kg.we had to pay surcharges. I just wish the flight team had intimidated us before. Our trip was memorable but for this unforeseen situation
