IN AND AROUND SIEM REAP
Siem Reap is a city that started slowly but has flourished in recent years as the gateway to the Temples of Angkor. The population of Siem Reap Province is around one million and it is continually growing. Everyone visits Siem Reap for Angkor Wat, for sure the temples in the Angkor Park are breathtaking but there is plenty to do in and around the city when you’re templed out.
Siem Reap is one of the fastest growing cities in Cambodia. No longer a small village, it has flourished into a vibrant modern city, full of restaurants and bars, and a new breed of luxurious boutique hotels popping up all over town. You can enjoy your coffee and relax in one of the plenty cosy cafes. When you have recharged your batteries, go and explore the night life at the Pub Street or try to make a good deal on one of the many markets. But even the surrounding is worth a visit.
Take a bicycle tour and discover Siem Reaps countryside along the rice fields.
The best time to visit Siem Reap is in December and January when the days are mostly sunny and dry occasionally, daytime highs won’t break through the 30-degree mark either. This makes it one of the best times of year for cycle rides, walking tours and visiting temples. But also, the rainy season has something for itself, when nature blossoms out and conjures the landscape into a strong green.
