Siem Reap was very high on our list when deciding which direction to start our travels to. We wanted to see Angkor Wat and the other beautiful temples in the zone and immerse into the remainders of the ancient khmer empire. And it proved to be a great choice despite the brutal heat: we have enjoyed every moment of this visit.
Siem Reap with Angkor Wat, Ta Prom, Pre Khan and all the other beautiful temples was one of the highlights in our 3,5-months Asia trip. We spent 9 wonderful days here despite the extreme heat, and would return any time without a moment of hesitation to see it all over again.
