Siem Reap..easy, affordable & pleasurable

93%
Found this guide helpful

Siem Reap is an easy place to get around...the best way to do it is by using a tuk tuk. There are so many of them & you can have their company, their local knowledge & enjoy spending your entire day with them. They can become like family & you will find yourself visiting their home, meeting their family & sharing a meal together. You need at least 3 days & nights here but more is definitely better. The Temple visits are amazing but exhausting..ideally to space them out over a couple of days & visit the Butterfly Sanctuary, take a cruise on Tonle Sap Lake but make sure this is arranged with a guide prior to going. This is one place where their are scamsters! Dining is the most varied you can get, chefs from every country in the world have a restaurant here so local food is great but so is the opportunity of enjoying a pizza, Mexican or a great steak! Check out restaurant reviews for wonderful eateries! Accommodation here is also excellent from home-stays to 5 stars.. they have it all..& it's so easy & safe to walk around & even get a great coffee! Fruit shakes, fruit juices are cheap & plentiful! A month goes very quickly here & 10 trips later I can't wait to head back!

    A combination of all the sites which you can easily spend 3 days viewing. If you do intend to do more than 1 day best to buy a 3 day pass. If you are going to do Flight of the Gibbon you will also need a pass for that so can include that as well. You also travel through here to some of the other temples & Butterfly Sanctuary. A lovely trip by tuk tuk.

    A large venue which takes up more time to explore than expected. It is a nice cool option for an other walk & you will see some of the history of early Cambodia. A pleasant experience if time permits.

    A very interesting & small museum. Located some way out of town so best to combine with the Butterfly Centre & temple visits. Well worth a visit & you may even see the man who set it up he is often there.

    My advice if you wish to visit the Tonle Sap lake area & any of the floating villagers is to go with a recognized guide. Many "barangs" (westerners) are scammed here with being taken to an "orphanage" & encouraged if not forced to buy a bag of rice for the poor children, which is not a very pleasant experience but can be easily avoided! I have heard of some westerners paying up to $70 for a bag which should be bought for $30!

    To walk through this village in the dry season & paddle through it after the wet season is very interesting. Houses are built up so high & most of these people have never left their village. Please organise any tours of this area with a recognized guide for your own safety & comfort. It takes quite some time to get there the trip out to the middle of the lake also takes considerable time to do. You can eat at one of the floating restaurants safely with your guides advice.

    If you are visiting Phnom Penh & Siem Reap then make sure you visit the Killing Fields in Phnom Penh. There is not much to see here but I would definitely recommend it in Phnom Penh. It is the history of Cambodia & should be seen & felt to appreciate what these people have gone through!

    This is a huge water holding but really a place for the locals to eat, rest & play. I would not advise westerners to swim if you do, don't swallow the water. We take 35 people here regularly & the children have the best time playing in the water & sharing a barbecue lunch. You rent the shelters by the size & can buy locally BBQ fish, chicken etc You can also hire tyres, bathers & there are many other local delicacies to eat, crickets, corn etc if you wish!

    It is quite a distance from Siem Reap but can be combined with a temple tour & the Landmine Museum to make the most of the trip. I found it very enjoyable. The young people who work here are usually university students & are very knowledgeable & enjoy sharing this with you! It is well maintained & if you are lucky you may be the only person here. It's inexpensive & many beautiful butterflies to try to capture with your camera!
