Siem Reap offers a window to a rich chapter in Cambodia's past, with ancient relics and ruins luring history buffs from across the globe. Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world, is the jewel of Siem Reap, with temples and pagodas offering a glimpse of what life was like 900 years ago. You'll be astounded by the level of detail in the sculptures that adorn Angkor Wat, Wat Bayon, and Ta Prohm temple complexes. After temple-hopping, visit Khom Phluk floating village, with a mangrove forest jutting up from a gentle river. Whether you are sipping an Angkor beer (the local favorite) on pub street at sunset, exploring the majestic ruins of the Khmer Empire, or exploring the lush surrounding landscape, you'll find yourself enraptured by Siem Reap, one of the most beautiful pieces remaining of the Old World.
