Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

Siem Reap is home to the largest religious monument in the world, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Angkor Wat. With remnants of the Khmer Empire scattered over a 300km area of north west Cambodia, visitors to this region simply cannot leave without seeing these incredible temples that impress and educate in equal measure. As you navigate the vast Angkor Wat temple complex you learn more about the rise and fall of one of Asia's greatest legacies. It should be noted, the temple complex is so vast, explorers are advised to allow plenty of time to do so.

A quick research of Siem Reap might lead prospective visitors to believe that all this region can offer is ancient architecture. However, Siem Reap is far more than this. With old markets, a bustling pub scene and traditional dance shows to keep visitors entertained, all whilst surrounded by colonial and Chinese-style architecture, this part of Cambodia gets better the deeper you are prepared to delve. In addition to these urban attractions, the Siem Reap countryside offers visitors the chance to explore traditional rice-paddies, fishing villages and silk farms. 

In summary, this corner of Cambodia provides both internationally renowned ancient sites as well as allowing the more inquisitive explorer an insight into local life.

As with the rest of Cambodia, Siem Reap experiences two main seasons that are differentiated by the amount of rainfall in each. The dry season (November to April) is the most popular season to travel, especially during the early months of November and December when the temperatures are cool and the rainfall minimal. Towards March and April the temperatures begin to climb making walking around the temple complex thirsty work.
The rainy season is from May to October and brings colour to the region. Furthermore, the water fills the moats surrounding the temple complex making for some stunning photography opportunities albeit at the expense of getting a little muddy.
