Kbal Spean (River of a Thousand Lingas)

While the decaying structures and overgrown temples of Angkor Wat remain among the most popular destinations in Siem Reap, the rare collection of stone carvings along the Stung Kbal Spean River, often referred to as 'Valley of 1000 Lingas,' continues to bring art and archaeology lovers outside the city and beyond Angkor.

Kompong Phluk

While houses on stilts can be quite common in Cambodia (you'll often see people relaxing in hammocks strung underneath the houses, homes on stilts in a lake…well, that's a bit more unusual. Kompong Phluk is a set of villages that are located on the floodplain of the Tonle Sap Lake, about 10 miles (16 km) from Siem Reap. The community, which consists of about 3,000 villagers, mostly live in stilted homes and depend on fishing and tourism for their livelihood …

Pedestrian-only streets mean it's easy to wander between stalls selling traditional crafts, ice-cold beers and spicy hot soups. Food here is as popular with locals as it is with travelers …

Tonlé Sap

This great lake in the heart of Cambodia is not only the largest body of fresh water in Southeast Asia, it's also a UNESCO-designated biosphere, due to its truly remarkable natural features. The flow of water in Tonlé Sap changes direction twice during the course of the year, and the lake expands and contracts with the seasons. From November to May-the country's dry season, the lake empties into the Mekong River …

» Wat Bo

Wat Bo

One of Siem Reap's oldest temples, Wat Bo is known for its collection of well-preserved wall paintings from the late 19th century. Though Wat Bo is a Buddhist temple, these paintings depict the Reamker, which is Cambodia's interpretation of the Ramayana-an epic Hindu story about the love between Rama and Shita, the strongest man and the most beautiful women of all time. There is also an impressive collection of Buddha statues …
