Angkor Wat

Of course, this is the only reason tourists visit Siem Reap, for its proximity to the architectural wonder that is Angkor Wat. It is the largest religious structure in the world and was built over 1000 years ago. The secrets of construction are still mired in mystery.

The Other Temples

Angkor Wat may be synonymous with Khmer architectural wonder, but it isn’t the only one. There’s Angkor Thom; the temple of faces and Ta Prohm; the famous set for Lara Croft Tomb Raider. You can stay at any of the Siem Reap hotels and be within a few minutes’ drive to the temples.

The Lovely Weather

There are two seasons in Siem Reap; the dry and the wet. It’s constantly hot in Cambodia even during the cold months and the rains, when they fall are those strong tropical showers that don’t last very long.

The Lovely People

Cambodians are notorious for their friendy cheerful demeanour. You will be invited to houses for a drink, a meal or even a party and it’s very easy to make friends.

You Don’t Have to Skip the Luxury

As Siem Reap blossoms as a tourist destination, there are many high-end resorts like FCC Angkor Managed by Avani Hotels & Resorts in the area so you can explore the wonder of an ancient kingdom without forgoing any of the comforts.
