Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.

  • Performances after performances. I recommend only going on Friday or Saturday (Please double check on this) since they only have this huge parade performance on these night. Otherwise all you see is the same dancing crew doing all the performance at different locations.
  • First stop at this village was the museum. Back then history, later for the wedding ceremony in the back to back human traffic. I really couldn't focus on the ceremony. So hot and stuffy. Thereafter the acrobatic show at the open area. Okay, promising start but then I felt as though I was watching the same stunts over and over again.
  • Entrance fee is 15$ per person. Good place to study culture of Khmer ethic.There are 14 places to visit and 8 culture shows. Basically performance and shows are start at about 11am and finished at 8pm , you have to plan to visit for the best time is 11am to 8pm.We also enjoyed awesome bottle feeding of fishes by buying one bottle per one dollar. Khmer traditional wedding ceremony performance also give us remarkable extraordinary experiences.
  • Has some really good dance performances..Only go if you are looking to pass time in Siem Reap doing something else. The fried rice at the restaurant was mind blowing !
  • Good place to go if you have lots of time to kill. USD15 is worth whole day trip there.
