Things to do in Siem Reap

There are plenty of things you can do in Siem Reap

Go on a hopping tour of Temples of Angkor Complex

Angkor complex is huge and not accessible in a single day. You need to have at least three days to visit the entire complex.There is a lot of history associated with it and you need to have a guide to get you around. I do not wish to write the names of the Temples here as you as such wont be able to remember. Some things are best left upon our guide.

Visit Phare Circus

A must visit if you are in Siem Reap. Its bit far from the central town so you may have to negotiate with you Tuk Tuk driver . The best option is let your hotel butler do the bargains .

The circus is organized by Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPSA) in a tent and it gets you thru all emotions right from laughter , sorrow , anger and ignorance. It’s a must visit and pretty nominal rates are charged
