Trip Report Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) Trip Report

Jump to last reply

We had a wonderful time in Siem Reap. With our guide Kim San http://www.angkor-guides.com we followed an itinerary that suited us very well and went at our pace.

Check out our trip report and pictures at http://www.bully4.us/cambodia.html

On arrival we checked into the Tara Angkor Hotel, which is very nice and has a very good restaurant. We had Cambodian massages (a bit different!), and then visited Artisans Angkor to see craftsmen at work, and of course shop for high quality art! After that it was a balloon ride over the Angkor complex, truly a great way to get an OVER view!

Next day we visited Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom with an elephant ride, and Ta Prohm with the great trees growing over the ruins. This is an awe inspiring world class experience. That night we took in the Apsara dance, a thing of great beauty.

Tonle Sap lake is also a very interesting experience, although if your time in the area is limited this is one you could skip.

We also were able to visit a silk factory and see the entire process, from the mulberry trees and mating the moths to putting the finished silk on the loom.

This was a great trip and well worth including in an Asian itinerary.
