Countryside Tours and Temples

Countryside Tours and Temples
Powered by GetYourGuide

If your schedule allows, set aside a day or three to get out of the Siem Reap Town/main temple area and into the countryside. Within just a few kilometers of town the landscape turns to rice paddies, small towns and villages, offering an opportunity to get a look at ‘real Cambodia’ – the rural countryside where the vast majority of Cambodians live and work.

Some tour operators specialize in countryside and cultural tours and can help arrange a variety of trips – from a simple half day cultural tours of the nearby rural areas from the back of an air-conditioned car, to extensive multi-day motorcycle adventure tours of the countryside, distant temples and greater country tours outside of the Siem Reap area.

One of the more popular and easy ways to see a bit of countryside is to take a trip to one of the more distant temples such as Koh Ker, Beng Mealea, or Banteay Chhmar. Touring these temples, located well outside Siem Reap in jungled and rural areas, allows you not only to experience untouristed Angkorian temples but to get a glimpse of the Cambodian countryside on the trip there and back. A stop in a village, often to see some NGO or charity project, is often included as part of the distant temple tour.
