With a backpack in tow, armed with an itinerary and an open-mind, a trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia is both a thrilling and a life changing experience. And along the way, you can easily make friends with travellers like yourself. Siem Reap is the gateway of the 9th-15th centuries of the Khmer Kingdom where you’ll find the fame and well preserved Angkor Wat. Moving around town is very challenging. If you do decide to hire a local private guide, make sure everything has been negotiated so you don’t have any surprised costs!
