Siem Reap sees one million tourists a year, all travelling to witness the majesty of Angkor Wat, which is a Buddhist temple complex made up of five towers. Cambodia is the child of the ancient Khmer nation which built the temples in the 12th century.
Cambodia’s recent history has been turbulent until recent years; visit the War Museum to commemorate the lives lost during Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge regime. Beyond Angkor Wat, Siem Reap houses hundreds of residents on the Siem Reap river on floating villages. Siem Reap is a relaxing and eye opening city in which you can embrace your inner Buddha through explorations of spirituality and humanity.
