What to Do in Siem Reap

Siem Reap Attractions

Our list of Siem Reap attractions shows that there's plenty of things to see and do aside from exploring iconic Angkor Wat temple. Siem Reap is relatively easy to get around thanks to the abundance of minivans, motorcycle taxis, and remok (Cambodian tuk-tuk) near prominent attractions. For example, Angkor Archaeological Park is located about six kilometres from downtown Siem Reap, where you can explore its iconic temples on foot, bicycle, or even eco-friendly electric cars.

In addition to the ancient temple ruins of Angkor Wat, other interesting attractions range from quaint museums, classical music venues in downtown Siem Reap to breathtaking waterfalls and floating villages set within the rural countryside. Read on for our guide on what to see in Siem Reap.
