Backpacking Siem Reap - 4D/3N Fun & Adventurous Travel Itinerary


     It was a dream come true for me to have finally stepped foot on the holy grounds of the majestic Angkor Wat and the other sacred temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia. As usual, I researched and planned my travel itinerary with great detail according to my interest and preferences.

     Temples tours are a must when in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Among the must visit temples are Angkor Wat, Bayon, Baphoun and Ta Prom (made famous through the movie, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider). Another worthy temple to visit is Banteay Srei (the Citadel of Women). Being adventurous, I also engaged myself in horseback riding as well as quad biking through the countryside of Cambodia to have a glimpse at the simple life of the people.

     Another worthy attraction is the floating houses and flooded forest of Kg. Phluk, located by the huge lake of Tonle Sap. Below is my 4 days 3 nights travel itinerary in Siem Reap.
