About Siem Reap

Siem Reap is a scenic spot that attracts the interest of travelers from around the globe. The World Heritage Site Angkor Wat is located to the north of the city. Angkor Wat is the generalized name for all of the ruins and archaeological sites related to the Angkor temple cluster. This was the capital of the ancient Khmer kingdom from the 9th to 15th centuries. The ancient temple ruins have long been claimed by the dense tropical rainforests. Take the day to visit Angkor Wat and then you can spend your evening back in the city having a glass of beer and enjoying the famous Pub Street.

UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Historical Site
Angkor Wat is the common name for the Angkor complex of temples. It is one of Cambodia's landmarks as well as a representative symbol of the country. It is located 6km north of Siem Reap. Angkor Wat combines the two basic elements of Cambodia temple architecture—altars and corridors—in a highly regimented and symmetrical complex of buildings. There are more than 600 extant structures. Some of the most famous include the Angkor Temple, Angkor Thom, Bakheng, Ta Prohm and Banteay Srei.
Bayon Temple
4.5/5
1,492 Reviews
Historical Site
Discover the extraordinary architecture of the Bayon, a 12th century Khmer temple, and the Cambodian history traced in its walls. This imposing and intricate stone structure is a pleasure for the casual sight-seer and the scholar alike. Originally built in the 1300's as the official state temple in the Mahayana Buddhist style, it was later modified to suit the Hindu and Theravada Buddhist Kings that followed. The Bayon is also famous for its bas-reliefs, which depict mythological and historical scenes in unique combination, most likely because of the Temple's complicated cultural background.

4.6/5
894 Reviews
Museum
The Angkor National Museum mainly exhibits cultural relics and works of art from various periods of the Khmer dynasty, including stone carvings, images of Buddha, multimedia images, etc. The collections are vast and precious. The exterior shape of the museum is uniquely designed and the roof has the charm of the ancient tower of Angkor Wat. The promenade, the doorway and the window are inspired by the design of Angkor Wat. Modern elements are also blended in, making it more magnificent and spectacular.

Tongwangcheng is also called the Great Angkor and Angkor City. It has been destroyed many times in the war and has been rebuilt several times. It is the heart of Angkor's monuments.
