Why Visit Siem Reap?
A custom made tour to Siem Reap is essential for first-time visitors. Peru is synonymous with Machu Picchu, Egypt is home to the grand pyramids, Great Britain has StoneHenge, and Siem Reap is known as the gateway to Angkor Wat, one of the worlds most fascinating man-made structures. However, travel to Siem Reap offers so much more than a simple pit-stop to explore Angkor Wat.
This city has serious character. It is a funky, cosmopolitan wonderland, where travellers strut to a different beat. It’s hard not to. Tuk tuks and motorbikes whizz along the dusty, pot-holed streets like road warriors in Mad Max. Hold on tight and be prepared for a surprise around every corner. Sure, visit Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat, but stay a little longer to experience a bar, restaurant, and market scene unlike anywhere you will find in South-East Asia.

We offer tours to Angkor Wat, the Bayon temple, and the Ta Prohm temple, where the stone structures have slowly been enveloped by dense jungle. We can also take you to the floating villages, where locals live on stilted wooden structures and houses that drift up and down stream.
For nature lovers, we offer bicycle tours through the lush countryside, a jeep tour to Kulen Mountain, and even a zipline above the jungle where gibbons swing vine-to-vine.

What To Do In Siem Reap
VISIT PUB STREET
Similarly to Hoi An in Vietnam, brightly coloured lanterns illuminate this infamous stretch of Siem Reap. Old Town in Hoi An has a more relaxed, tranquil vibe, whereas Pub Street feels more like the festival party strip of Bui Vien in Ho Chi Minh City. You simply can’t travel to Siem Reap without spending at least a few hours in the funky cocktail bars and delectable restaurants crammed into Pub Street.
This performance of acrobatics, theatre, music, dance and modern circus arts tells uniquely Cambodian stories. The circus is run as a social enterprise and recruits Cambodian youths who come from challenging social and economic backgrounds.
