Siem Reap is famously known for being the gateway to one of the Seven Wonders Of The World and a Unesco World Heritage Site: Angkor Wat. Siem Reap has grown into a bustling city that ranks in the top fastest growing cities in the world. The country of Cambodia itself has been through a tumultuous past and now is opening its magical doors for you to enjoy.If you’re interested in learning a thing or two about the local Khmer cuisine just hail a “Tuk-Tuk” (aka a Taxi) from your accommodation and tell the driver “Pub Street” they will know where to take you.Pub Street is an area known for—get this—pubs, restaurants, souvenir shops, food markets, and of course cooking classes. Once you get a chance to walk the shaded boulevards of the inner city, rest your legs near the enchanting river and mingle along the French style shops and terraces. Of course you should try a bowl of traditional Fish Amok while you plan your next couple days. Hire a Tuk-Tuk and buy a three day Pass to the Temples of AngKor Wat. You might end up staying longer than you planned.
The 8th Wonder of the world, Angkor Wat is a part of the Angkor ruins that stretch over more than 248 square miles (400 square kilometers). Angkor Wat was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.
