Siem Reap is a great place to visit because of the history and culture and of course it's main attraction, the Angkor temples. When I traveled to Siem Reap, I was scammed the moment I got out of the airport. I've spoken to friends and colleagues that have traveled to Siem Reap and some had a better experience. I concluded that if you get the right tour guide, you'll be in safe hands. For the entire duration of my journey from Siem Reap International Airport to the Park Hyatt Siem Reap where I stayed, the taxi driver was convincing us to hire him as our tour guide and driver. Being 2 minutes in the country, he seemed like a jovial guy, had a proper car, spoke good English, I was sold. Never have I been so wrong. The next day when he picked us up from the hotel in the morning, he was the same person physically, but completely different personality. He didn't speak and only answered when spoken to. This was the beginning of a disaster holiday where he set us up for con every step of the way including the infamous Tonle Sap Lake cruise scam. If you managed to get a proper tour guide then some of the Angkor temples to visit when in Siem Reap would be the world famous Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm where they shot Tomb Raider. Apart from the breath taking sight of the Angkor temples, there is not much else to do in Siem Reap.
