Siem Reap, Cambodia, Asia, Dec 2001

Click photo to view photo album

Siem Reap city - home to the fascinating Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat (please see the Angkor area section), it has a lot more to offer. We would recommend 3 full days in Siem Reap but probably only 1/2 day in the city, since most people are here for the temples. Get a free copy of the local guide at your hotel, it contains everything that you need for directions from the temples, other local attractions and restaurants.

You can get to Siem Reap by domestic flight from Phnom Penh or international flight from Thailand and Vietnam.

City attractions: (You can easily find all these from the local map, get a free local guide book, for details click the links on the left hand menu)
Royal Residence: A quick walk around of the garden opposite to the Royal Residence
Red Piano bar: The place where the "Tomb Raiders" crew hanged out when they were there in November 2000.
House of Peace: Leather shadow puppet workshop/sales
Les Artisans D'Angkor: Woodworking and stone carving workshop
