Siem Reap

Siem Reap offered a wonderful experience, preserving much of its stunning architecture and rich culture. While the Khmer cuisine was delightful, it might not be something one could enjoy daily for an extended stay of five days. Shopping opportunities were somewhat limited, but the locals were incredibly warm and hospitable.
