Things To Do in Siem Reap, Cambodia (that have nothing to do with temples)

Angkor Wat is great, yes. But is there anything else to do in Cambodia aside from traversing temples?   In my 5-day trip to Siem Reap, my girlfriends and I discovered that there are other things to see in the city other than pagodas and bas-relief structures that are just as interesting and fun.

From Amok to Happy Pizza: Eating in Siem Reap

Going from one temple to another is no joke. A full day of touring Cambodia’s prodigious architectural sites can leave one feeling famished.

Angkor Thom and Preah Khan, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Picturesque Pre Rup Temple at Siem Reap, Cambodia

Our second day in Cambodia could be summed up in three E’s: exhausting, educational, and exciting. We basically spent this day hopping from one temple to another.

Moon Boutique Hotel, Siem Reap, Cambodia
