Where to visit in Siem Reap

Tourists come to Siem Reap to visit the Angkor temples. The most famous one-- Angkor Wat-- is just one of many temples scattered in a large area.

One Day-- USD $37.50
Three Days-- USD $62
One Week-- USD $72

If you want to see all the temples, then I suggest getting the one week pass. If you want to visit just the major temples, then the three day pass will suffice.

TIP: You may want to buy your pass at 5PM the day before you intend to use it. You'll be allowed free entry into the park to watch the sunset from Phnom Bakheng Temple

1. Ta Phrom

Home to giant roots reclaiming the ruins, Ta Phrom is where Tomb Raider was actually filmed. These massive roots enveloping the temples was a spectacular sight. Definitely a must-see.

 

2. Angkor Thom & Bayon Temple

Bayon-Temple Siem Reap Cambodia

The largest temple in the complex, Angkor Thom is the second most visited temple after Angkor Wat Covering an area of 9 sq km, at the center of Angkor Thom is Bayon Temple, which is home to these massive, carved stone heads pictured below.

3. Angkor Wat

Visiting Angkor Wat Siem Reap -Cambodia

The largest Hindu temple complex in the world, Angkor Wat is a massive structure surrounded on all sides by a moat. I visited Angkor Wat twice-- once during the day and another early in the morning to get my sunrise shot.

4. Bantaey Srei

Banteay Srei Cambodia

Around an hour away by tuk from the main temple complex, Bantaey Srei is one of the smaller temples but also one of the most unique. The only temple made from pink sandstone, it boasts the best, most intricate temple carvings of all. It's definitely worth a visit.
