Free-time activities

Visit Temples

Some people only go to Cambodia to see the amazing Angkot Wat which is close to Siem Reap. Angkor Wat ruins are approximately 900 years old, and are part of an entire park that you could get lost in for hours. Two more beautiful temples that we recommend in Siem Reap are Angkor Thom and Ba Yon Temple. There you will see colossal carvings of Bodhisattva’s, elephants and intricate demons and gods. Just make surethat you don’t walk into the wrong room with shoes on!


Do a Yoga Retreat

Cambodia has hundreds of affordable, secluded and spiritually gratifying yoga experiences. Wake up to the sound of gongs, chant your heart out and truly relax and experience real yoga. You can stay anywhere from a few days to a few hours, and all yogi levels can find the right retreat for your needs.


Go to a Cambodian Market

Asian outdoor markets are often quite the eye-opener to Western visitors. Fresh vegetables, living fish and souvenirs all in one bustling place. Shop like a local but still get souvenirs, and finish the experience with some homemade noodles. We recommend the Old Market and the Night Market in Siem Reap centre or Psar Leau,, just a 5 minutes’ drive via tuk-tuk.


See the Cambodian Circus Show

Be mesmerized by the captivating choreography and hypnotic color of a Phare performance in Siem Reap on a 90-minute spectacle that blends riveting theater with folk music and distinctly Cambodian stories. Commend the determination of the young circus artists, many of who are from challenging social and economic backgrounds, as they hypnotize the audience with their energy and emotion.


Visit the Cambodia Landmine Museum

If you’d like to learn more around the recent war history in Cambodia and how landmines are still a serious threat for Cambodians, then the visit to the Cambodian Landmine museum founded by ex-child soldier Aki Ra is a must.
