Angkor Wat is a great reason to wander into Cambodia.
It is but one temple in the ancient city of Angkor, which is filled with many other ruined structures that are equally as marvelous. Almost all travelers arrive here by way of Siem Reap, a tourist hub worth spending, at least, a few extra nights to explore.
Siem Reap is a popular route along the Thailand-Cambodia-Vietnam “Banana Pancake” trail. It is possible to travel by land to Siem Reap from Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) via several border crossings. Travel time to Siem Reap from Bangkok is 10 to 12 hours. Meanwhile travel time from Ho Chi Minh may take 12 hours.
Siem Reap International Airport (REP) is Cambodia’s busiest airport. This airport serves direct flights from Kuala Lumpur (2h flight duration), Bangkok (1h), Singapore (2H), Hong Kong (2H 40m), Seoul and other cities in Southeast and East Asia.
