Most travelers come to Siem Reap for a place to sleep between visits to the fabled temples of Angkor. The city makes for a convenient base for exploring the archaeological site, but also has a way of drawing visitors in with extended stays. Siem Reap is home to some of the liveliest bars, most luxurious spas, and finest hotels and restaurants in Cambodia. While tourism has filled the city with pubs and resorts, it’s also created a market for traditional Khmer handicrafts and performing arts. A mecca for local performers and artists, this chic town offers an intoxicating mix of refined traditional culture and cosmopolitan energy. A tailormade Siem Reap holiday will also introduce you to the city’s more scenic side of floating villages, temples, and nature sanctuaries. Don’t be surprised if you want to delay a tour of Angkor Wat to spend a few more days exploring Siem Reap.

What’s Special about Siem Reap & Angkor?

It’s easy to get lost in the tourist traffic in Siem Reap, but Backyard Travel’s custom Siem Reap & Angkor tours shed a different light on the city. Siem Reap is perhaps the best place to understand the complex forces shaping modern Cambodia. There’s as much to learn as there is to see.



CHARACTER

Siem Reap is probably the most toured city in Cambodia. Some locals can seem a bit insistent when making tourist offerings, but underneath it all is the same warm, respectful demeanor that characterizes the rest of the country.



CLIMATE

November to March has the best weather and attracts the biggest crowds. April through May can be very hot, while June to October is rainy. If you can stand the sun and rain, these months offer welcomed peace.



ENTERTAINMENT

An established tourist hub, Siem Reap offers a wide array of entertainment, from chic backpacker bars to decadent spas and lounges. Siem Reap also has a burgeoning performance art scene, with several circus, shadow puppetry, and theatre shows.



CULTURE

While Siem Reap retains elements of traditional Khmer culture and the laid-back feel of the small town it once was, this active city is also perhaps the most cosmopolitan in the country, attracting both foreigners and ambitious Cambodians.



LANGUAGE

Local people in the city speak Khmer, although some minority language communities are present. French is also spoken, and most travel service providers will have English-speakers on staff.



HISTORY

From humble village beginnings, Siem Reap was attracting famous visitors like Charlie Chaplin as early as the beginning of the 20th century. The city suffered greatly under the Khmer Rouge, but is a busy tourist destination again today.
