Siem Reap is best known as the base town for discovering the world-famous Angkor Wat, but its appeal doesn’t end there. Splendid colonial and Chinese-style architecture dot the city, making for great walking tours. Near Tonle Sap Lake, charming villages with stilt houses are a fascinating sight. Apsara dance performances, verdant rice paddies and a bird sanctuary further add to the city’s many attractions.
