Siem Reap Guide

Siem Reap is the gateway to the Khmer Dynasty temples. Buried deep in the jungle for centuries, the Temples of Angkor cover a vast area and will be sure to leave a lasting impression.

South of Siem Reap, Tonle Sap is the largest body of freshwater in south east Asia and home to rural fishing villages who live on the lake.
