Around Siem Reap

The reason most people come to Siem Reap is to visit the Angkor Archaeological Park. The town is worth strolling about for itself and there are a number of means to go about enjoying the city. 

Going about on foot is perhaps the most leisurely and most rewarding.  Here, the pace may be quite laid-back to some, but all in all it’s a pleasant place to be at.   Along the streets, there are many shops offering services and goods ranging from the basic necessities to fine silk; chic galleries with beautiful display of local art pieces and lots of souvenirs.
