Epic Things To Do In Siem Reap Cambodia - Uncommon activities

Siem Reap in Cambodia is an extremely fun place to go on a holiday to, and here are some of the best things you can do while you are there.


Take a look at the Angkor Wat

This is obviously on anybody's list, whoever it is that plans a visit to Cambodia. You simply cannot visit this country and leave without taking a look at this mysterious, magical and absolutely mind-blowing temple that was built back in the 12th century. Spreading out for more than 500 acres this humongous temple took almost 30 years to build. Originally built as a Hindu temple, this is now a Buddhist temple. Each structure in the temple represents the different phases of life. If you are staying at one of the Angkor Wat hotels the likes of FCC Angkor Siem Reap, getting to this temple will not be too much of a hassle. The best time to visit this temple is during the early morning hours or just in time to see the sunset.


Go dirt biking

There are many ways to go dirt biking when you are in Cambodia. You could either go for a tour that takes you just a day or even only half a day. Or, you could go all out and embark on a week-long dirt bike excursion around the country. Depending on your needs and expertise, there are a lot of available excursions you can choose from. You will obviously need to have a little bit of experience in riding these dirt bikes to go out on the open roads in a foreign country.


Eat a few red ants

This is a common snack that is loved by all the people in Cambodia. A popular dish in the country is made with ants and beef. This dish is stated to be similar to caviar in western countries. People say that ants have a crunchy and crispy taste and you will definitely not feel like you are eating an ant and when you are munching on it.


Visit the old market

For the best kind of authentic local experience, you must visit the old market in Siem Reap. Built back in the 1920s, this is the place where the people of the town come to buy everything and anything they need for their life. From grains to produce and meat, everything needed for an essential daily life can be found at this market. You will also be able to find vendors here selling clothes, spices and handicrafts. All of these make great souvenir gifts to take back home to your loved ones.


Take a look at the land mine museum

The Vietnam War happened quite a few decades ago, but the reminders of this horrible time still remain hidden in parts of Cambodia. The Cambodian landmine Museum is the best place in town for you to educate yourself on the happenings of the war and how it affected this country and the people who were living here at that time.
