Welcome to Siem Reap Region
Let's be honest, most people are in Siem Reap to explore the majestic temples of Angkor, rightly regarded as the most spectacular collection of temples on earth. But there is more to this province that the awe-inspiring remnants of the Khmer Empire. Siem Reap is emerging as a destination in itself, with a slew of stylish restaurants and an ever-growing bar scene centred on the infamous Pub St. Beyond Temple Town are a handful of impressive attractions, including the otherworldly floating and stilted villages of the Tonlé Sap and some high-profile bird sanctuaries that are home to rare large water birds. The province is also emerging as an accessible place to experience a local homestay and a slice of local life in a traditional village. Throw in a hatful of remote jungle temples and sacred mountains and it's best to extend your stay by a few days.
