Explore Siem Reap, the gateway to Angkor Wat.

It’s incredible to think that the world’s largest pre-industrial city was hidden in jungles near Siem Reap for so long. Now that the ruins are revealed and restored, the sheer scale of Angkor hypnotises more than one million visitors each year. The jewel in the city’s crown, Angkor Wat, is mesmerising proof of a civilisation that dominated most of the Southeast Asian peninsula for centuries. Nearby, a modern city thrives, providing luxurious accommodation, fine dining and entertainment. We bring you the ultimate travel guide and essential tips to help you make the most of your visit to the breath-taking temples of Angkor.

While a visit to Angkor Wat may be on everybody’s bucket list, it’s an adventure that requires careful planning (so many temples, so little time). With our guidance, you can beat the crowds and heat while discovering hidden gems. After an exhausting trek through ancient ruins, you’ll need pampering. Our Siem Reap travel guide videos will help you prepare for an exciting night of shopping, dining and cocktails in the heart of Siem Reap. We reveal little-known bars and eateries hidden in backstreets, and introduce you to the best entertainment the city has to offer.

Our Siem Reap content also proves this region is more than just Angkor and Pub Street. Learn about Cambodia’s incredible history at war museums, enjoy a boat tour of Tonle Sap Lake’s floating villages, and travel through the beautiful landscape to the lesser known Banteay Srey temple complex, known for its intricate carvings. We’d love to hear from you about your favourites too.

Let the adventure begin.
