Visiting Siem Reap province and the ancient temples of Angkor Wat truly feels like stepping into an entirely different world or a Tomb Raider movie scene. Figuring as the second largest city in Cambodia, Siem Reap is in fact best known for the complex of 12th century temples, but trust me- there is much more to explore while visiting this mystic place. But while living the ancient adventure, it’s good to know where the best restaurants and cafes are.
Although Siem Reap is heaven for the street-food lovers, travellers seeking fine-dine experiences and trendy cafes will have their pick too.
