SIEM REAP - THE TOWN
Getting to Siem Reap by air was very expensive at $105.

Perhaps this will help others!
The taxi from the airport was cheap, only $5.
My Hotel was in a very dusty side street, I wondered where on earth my Taxi was taking me! It turned out to be quite a smart Hotel, but no views.

Did more walking, and wore myself out, and I also was ALL TEMPLED OUT!
The Temples were wonderful, and well worth the hard slog.
I hired a tuk-tuk for the day, every day, this was a great way to get around. I also enjoyed the nice breeze.
I haven't written any tips on all the Temples that I saw. I went to lots and lots, and they were all very interesting.

I had nearly 3 full days of walking around them, was exhausted the last day, the heat was so oppressive, so finished early on the last day.
Visiting here was an incredible experience for me, and one I won't forget.
This Wat is located beside the River in the centre of town. It was founded in 1915. In the grounds are two large... more travel advice
