Know the town

Nope, it’s not the capital of Cambodia. It’s only just the gateway of the major tourist hub where the world famous heritage site of the Angkor Wat is found.

Most of the temples are already in ruins but that's what it makes these attractions more popular.


But lo and behold, it’s not all about the Angkor Wat! You won’t experience the true Kingdom of Wonder without seeing the beautiful Angkor Thom where the Bayon Temple is located. You have to see the Ta Phrom temple where “ Tomb Raider” was filmed. Thommanon and Chau Say Tevoda temples are a must see too! I love the entrance of the South Gate where a long line of statues (I don’t know what it’s called) that seem to welcome the visitors.


The entire town of Siem Reap is very amazing! The people, temples and the food are fabulous! I can’t ask for more! Truly, Cambodia is the “Kingdom of Wonder”.
