Things to do
Your boutique hotel provides a luxurious base from which to explore the ancient temples around Siem Reap. Marvel at immense statues of Hindu deities and stunning towers at Angkor Wat. Or uncover the atmospheric ruins of a Buddhist monastery, gradually swallowed by the surrounding jungle, at Ta Prohm.
There’s plenty to see around Siem Reap besides the temple complexes. Take a leisurely boat tour of the Tonle Sap lake, home to unique communities that live on the water in floating villages. Or trek out into the surrounding countryside and paddy fields on horseback.
Siem Reap offers an exclusive insight into historic Khmer culture. In fact, it is one of the only places in Cambodia where you can watch traditional dances and shadow puppet shows performed, usually over dinner. The local cuisine is also a source of pride. Try authentic Khmer dishes in the many fine dining restaurants, or book a cookery course to take home a delicious souvenir.
