Re: Cambodia - Siem Reap

You can spend your 4 days in Angkor, but for me 1 or 2 day was more than enough. I went to Tonle Sap Lake, its really worth to see the Cambodians living in the lake ( floating village) you can can also see the floating forrest.

Is easy if you book this tour in one of agencies in Siem Reap everything is organize with transportation. The pub street in the evening and the night market.

I have a blog of Cambodia if your interested

Re: Cambodia - Siem Reap

The new entrance fees for Ankor are $37 for 1 day and $62 for 3 days, the area is very big 1 day is not really enough, the Siem Reap is quite interresting as wll Tonle Sap

Re: Cambodia - Siem Reap

There is one sight really not to miss but early in the morning : the sun rising over Angkor Wat with the lake in front, but of course best at sunrise around 6am. I would also take a day trip out to places like Banteay Srei temple. Not many tourists out here, there is also a hike through a nearby forest alongside a river (with pools for swimming) up to another temple with a massive reclining Buddha. There is another temple in the main area but I can't remember its name, where there is the climb up for the sunset over te main Angkor temple and the forest.

Re: Cambodia - Siem Reap

Of course when you visit Angkor Wat some people are more interested in the temples than others. I spent more or less 12 hours there and felt i had seen enough. Good advice above about visiting Tonle Sap and the floating villages, and of course spend a night on Pub Street. There is one bar called Temple Club where there is a free Aspara dance show beginning at 7 pm each evening. I was there in 2007 and again this year and it is well worth seeing while you dine.
