Two Must Visit Places To Add To Your Siem Reap Day Trip Itinerary

by Sonny L on March 19, 2018

Few places are as gorgeous as the city of Siem Reap, which is right on the Siem Reap River. For more than a century, the city has been an exhilarating tourist attraction. Filled with a range of recreational activities, dining and lodging accommodations for nearly every budget, Siem Reap Province is able to satisfy the adventurist in many ways. If you are planning a Siem Reap day trip, don’t forget to add these two places into your itinerary.

Full-Day Preach Vihear Tour:

There’re not many shrines on the planet earth that compete Preach Vihear for architectural splendor & setting. The temple locates itself on the border of the Dangrek Mountains close to the Thai border & commands excellent panoramas of northern Cambodia. The entry to the shrine is a short expanse from the edge. A long flight of steps, scales up from the Thai side to an elaborated entry Gopura that looks back in the direction of Thailand.  Away from the Gopura, an expansive, cemented walkway leads up to Preah Vihear’s asylum, built hard against the vertical sides of the Dangrek Mountains. The height & local landscape mean Preah Vihear is usually enfolded inthe cloud, but this simply adds to its charm.

Main highlights of this full-day tour:

  • A short trip to Anlong Veng – the last den Khmer Rough

Slowly finding its place on the tourist map, Battambang is an enthralling riverside township, where tourists can enjoy a genuine Cambodian lifestyle. Although it’s the country’s 2nd largest town, Battambang feels world’s away from the capital as it radiates a comfortable, laid-back ambiance.
