This temple complex attracts millions of visitors annually to discover one of the most important archaeological sites in the history of mankind.

There are incredible jewels represented by their people, as well as traditions and landscapes. In addition, it is said that this city is a place of great singers in this country and it would be among the major cities in Cambodia because it will show you an interesting bamboo train, the Sangker River and the Phnom Banan, one of the great jewels of Battamban.

Siem Reap

Siem Reap is one of the biggest cities in Cambodia. Some see it as the hidden gem of the Cambodia cities. You can start strolling among the temples of Agkor Wat to explore a unique set of temples.

You have the possibility to discover Tone Sap Lake or the largest floating freshwater village in Southeast Asia. It is a way to enjoy the way of life of fishermen and the villages connected by waterways. During the day, the main streets are filled with people because people make the cafes and markets part of their lives.

The Central Café is highly recommended for a day of gossip and at night, the suggestion is the Red Piano as it is one of the best Khmer curries of all the cities in Cambodia.

Kampong Cham

Our last suggestion in Cambodia cities is to visit Kampong Cham if you really want to get to know this country in depth. This small town bases its life on fishing and plantations and it stands out as it surrounded by the Mekong River. You can enjoy the island of Koh Paen, located one kilometre from the riverbank. It's like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert.

You can also discover the French Lighthouse, a symbol of the colonial past of the city which is also an icon and flagship of this city because you can see the bridge and the views from its highest part are magical.

This city still has many unpaved roads and the villages are covered with typical thatched huts where its inhabitants open the doors out of their hospitality.
