Siem Reap Angkor

Sunset over Angkor Wat A lifetime of sunsets over Angkor is not sufficient to discover the secrets of the ancient capital city, which covered an area of roughly 1000 square kilometres.


Siem Reap Angkor Walks

You have come to Siem Reap to visit Angkor, and have probably spent the whole day rambling around the temples. By now, you are ready for a foot massage or an ice-cold beer, not more visiting!

But how about checking out the city's other interesting spots? And why not by foot or bicycle?

Visit the old city centre or discover Siem Reap's modern pagodas along the river. Still hungry for Angkor and more Angkor? Head to the temples less travelled...


Siem Reap self-guided walk: Siem Reap wat (3 km)

The pagodas of Siem Reap may not be as old as Angkor, just a few hundred years... but the everyday Buddhist rites are eternal. Superb carpentry, masonry and woodwork, intricate painted frescoes mix with serene stupas to create a leisurely self guided walking tour.


Angkor self-guided tour: Temples less travelled (25 km)

Away from the crowds, closer to local villages, these magnificent temples are wonders to behold for those who can take time to discover Angkor at their own pace. Children walk the buffaloes home, men plow their fields while you rest in the shade of dipterocarps.
