Nico W's City Tips

  • Siem Reap has a range of food for all budgets from street food to high-end restaurants.
  • The French restaurants around town are very high-quality and worth trying.
  • You can rent bicycles for as low as US $1 for a day and it's a great way to see the city because the landscape is so flat
  • Tuk-tuks, motorized taxi's, are everywhere in town and they can drive you around the main parts of the city for up to a few dollars or less
  • Don't point your feet at any religious statue or shrine.
  • When sitting and facing a monk and elder, do not point your feet at them. Put your legs behind you.
  • Don't touch monks if you're female.
  • Don't offer food or drinks with your left hand - this is your hygiene hand in the absence of toilet paper.

    Bodia Spa is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after a full day at the temples or activity. You have a variety of treatments to choose from and you'll feel zen the moment you walk through their doors. Take the time to treat yourself to a peaceful hour or two of bliss.

    Take a 20-minute bicycle ride out of the Siem Reap city and enjoy sunset among the rice paddies on the hammocks by Tonle Sap Lake during the rainy season between May to October. The open green landscape blends beautifully with the water and you can see far into the fields and water.

    Good for
    • Peace and Quiet Seeker
    • Nature Lover
    Tips
    • You can take a tuk tuk or bicycle along the Tonle Sap River. Your tuk tuk driver will wait for you until you are done, so take your time.
    • You can order street food at the end of the road and bring it back to your hammocks.
    • You can try fishing and order bait and a rod so you can tell your friends you caught fish at the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia.

    If you have a full day, get away from the busy city and take trip to Phnom Kulen to enjoy one of the province's most beautiful areas, waterfalls, Big Buddha and thousand lingas along the river. The area is tranquil and you can make a romantic picnic in this beautiful environment.

    Good for
    • Foodie
    Tips
    • Go during the wet season to see the waterfall, which is between May to October.
    • You can hire a car at an agency to get to the area, which takes about an hour to get to Phnom Kulen.

    This is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a tranquil environment while indulging in top-quality food made with French-style cooking. Enjoy a glass of wine, a main course and save room for dessert that is beautifully presented to end your meal.

    Good for
    • Foodie
    • Couples
    Tips
    • Any of the main fish dishes are superb as they are made with flavours that blend perfectly with each other. If you're not sure what to choose, try the sea bass fish with risotto.
    • Save room for dessert and try the fried banana with ice cream and whipping cream

    If you have your temple day pass and got through the temples by mid-day, come back after 5:00 pm. and enjoy a sunset picnic right in front of the main temple. Enjoy a local meal right by the temple water and chill out to watch the sun go down behind the Angkor Wat temple.

    • You can bicycle back to the temple, which is about a 30-40 minutes from town.

    Come here to enjoy a meal by one of the most scenic views in the city by the Siem Reap River. Sit outside while you enjoy your buffet meal, a cocktail and traditional Apsara dance show while being served by very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
