SIEM REAP -- Area Code +855-63


General Information

    Siem Reap, a bustling trading post sprung up at the gates to Angkor's magnificent world wonders and the majestic wildlife haven of the Tonle Sap lake, is now home to the revival of traditional Khmer arts and culture as well as being Cambodia's capital of cool.

    Funkiness, the fantastical and the sublime all co-exist in this friendly, safe and easy-going tropical holiday destination. You'll be doing yourself a disservice if you just fly in and out for an exhausting 2-day temple tour. There's so much to discover and the pace of life so pleasurably lazy that you can easily spend a week here without being bored.

    Hidden jungle animal sculptures that pre-date Angkor, peaceful Buddhist temple compounds housing vibrant 200-year-old murals (including a market scene with four arm-in-arm same-sex couples), an air-conditioned modern Museum explaining the art and iconography you'll encounter at Angkor (do see this first before you begin your temple trek), contemporary art exhibitions by emerging Khmer artists, market places bulging with the stuff of everyday Khmer life, cheap and delicious hole-in-the-wall eateries, eco-tours to floating villages and silk farms, more than a bit of gay life and a chance to interact with friendly and approachable locals, worthy social projects addressing the many needs of a large rural population, a "beach" on the edge of a cosmic ocean where locals go to swim and picnic, a chance to get all your Christmas shopping done in a day -- Siem Reap provides vivid memories at every turn.

    The population of the province is around 1,000,000 and growing fast (that's about 40,000 Utopians living in the vicinity of the city).

      Comments from Utopians:

      "Sovan took me around the Angkor Archaeological Park for 3 days. I let him organise my visit after I gave him my list of must-sees. He used his tuk-tuk, and a car where appropriate, and escorted me at every visit. He is very pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and knows the place inside out. Very reasonably priced. I wholeheartedly recommend Sovan and I cannot thank him enough for making my visit so memorable." -- Teddy, Nov 8, 2023

      "I've known Sovan for eight years and I never come to Siem Reap without making sure that he would be my driver. Sovan is not only a very friendly and dedicated fellow, he also makes sure that I feel safe and comfortable while riding with him. He knows his way around, knows the gay venues and the scene. Sovan is your guy!" -- Kai, Jun 1, 2023
