SIEM REAP (ANGKOR)

The Angkor complex located in the vicinity of Siem Reap is one of the greatest sites of the ancient world anywhere on the planet and an absolute must visit. It is certainly the greatest site in the region and with all the attention the ruins of Angkor receive, Siem Reap itself has evolved from a sleepy cluster of rural villages to a charming provincial town replete with boutique hotels, excellent restaurants and efficient transport facilities. Whilst the temple ruins with their ancient stones encased by the roots of jungle trees are the main draw, there is much else to see and do in the surrounding countryside. The largest lake in South East Asia, Ton Le Sap, is very nearby as are many interesting villages, craft shops and humanitarian assistance programs and organisations.
