Visit the incredible temples of Angkor Wat

Lying in the northwest of Cambodia, close to the Tonle Sap Lake, Siem Reap is predominantly known as the gateway to the Temples of Angkor. Once a collection of villages built around pagodas and surrounded by rice paddies, the city has benefited from its proximity to the ancient sites. Modern Siem Reap has a delightful mixture of colonial and Cambodian styles plus a fantastic dining and arts scene as well as vibrant nightlife similar to a Thai beach resort. The city’s compelling Angkor National Museum highlights the fascinating history of the nearby Temples of Angkor.
