Siem Reap Highlights

An incredibly popular tourist destination in southeast Asia, Siem Reap is the ‘Great Gate to Angkor’ bursting with Parisian heritage and brilliant temples. It has a great history and is enchanting to all who pass through.

Work your way through the Old Market as you witness the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. It is a city that has been transformed by tourism, so much so that there is a wonderful mix of bars and restaurants.

While the Angkor Wat is the main attraction, the vibrant city is filled with colours. Ta Prohm and Angkor Thom are stunning places to see and there isn’t a photo or any words that can do justice to the wonder of Siem Reap.

Packing Tips

Siem Reap is known as the gateway to the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ and many people who visit here come so to explore and experience the Angkor Wat temples.

If you plan on exploring these beautiful monuments yourself you’ll want to pack a selection of sensible footwear for the trip (flip-flops aren’t a great idea!) and also lots of light layers that will help keep you cool during the hot days. If you can pack purely natural fabrics (such as cotton and linen), you’ll definitely feel the benefit.

It’s also advisable to take your own small medical kit with you, as well as anti-bacterial hand wash – as some things may be hard to come by in local towns and villages.
