What to do and see in Siem Reap, Siem Reap Province: The Best Hidden Gems Things to do

May 22, 2022 Carley Gatson

When the morning light washes over the overgrown temples and ruins of Angkor Wat, a simple Siem Reap sunrise becomes a profound event. The ancient structures are contained within one of the largest religious complexes in the world. The complex and the 12th century Angkor Thom royal city are considered the main reasons to visit Siem Reap. Get a lesson in national history at the Cambodian Cultural Village, and a lesson in bargaining at the Angkor Night Market, a bonanza of shopping stalls, food vendors, and bars.

Kimleng Sang Angkor Photography & Tours

I like to take my guests away from the crowds to experience the real Cambodia with my Photography Tours through my eyes . I was born in Takeo Province, along the boarder with Vietnam. Takeo is sometimes referred to as 'the cradle of the Khmer civilization.' In 2000, I moved to Siem Reap where I began work as a tuk-tuk driver. Over time, I met many professional photographers from around the world, people who were seeking something other than the well-worn tourist trails. With a growing curiosity in the activities and work of these photographers, I began to photograph myself. Since 2005, I have had a number of Western tutors, and have gone on to establish myself as a well-known photographer in Siem Reap Province. I have developed a series of tours through Angkor (Siem Reap), Battambang, Kampot, Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh. I have experience of other areas in Cambodia if you wish to see more of my country I can offer transport by tuk-tuk or my air conditioned car.

Bambu Stage Siem Reap

Bambu Stage is a hybrid theatre with creative, entertaining and informative nightly shows, as well as daily puppet and drumming workshops. We are a performing arts venue and gathering place for artists and art lovers. We operate as a social entreprise with the goal of contributing to a sustainable Cambodian arts scene.

Reviewed By tripmemories

We had been hoping to see a traditional puppet show for some time now, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Bambu Stage experience. The venue had a lovely ambiance, and it was wonderful to see the traditional arts being revived in Cambodia! During the show, we had the opportunity to watch the puppeteers in action in front of and behind the screen—both of which were interesting perspectives. The puppeteers were superb actors and very talented puppet makers, as well. Our local guide joined us, and it was a hoot seeing him crack up at the many jokes during the performance. After the show, we had the opportunity to watch a puppet being crafted, to operate the puppets ourselves (they were pretty heavy!), and to test out some of the traditional musical instruments. We also got to snap a picture with Archie, their adorable 4-legged security guard. This would be a great venue for a date night or to take the kids, as well. Overall, it was a lovely evening that provided further insight into Cambodian culture while also adding more variety into our daily itinerary of temple visits.

Colors of Cambodia

The concept for Colors of Cambodia originated in 2001, when founder Bill Gentry visited Cambodia and found himself in awe of the highly skilled artists and rich artistic history of the country. He noticed most of the children in Siem Reap’s impoverished villages had no means or platform by which to create art, leaving a very important gap that needed to be filled. Currently there are still no mainstream art programs in Cambodian schools. In 2003, Bill officially opened the doors to Colors of Cambodia, located right in the bustling heart of Pub Street. What began as a way of offering free art education and materials to the children of Siem Reap has since developed to encompass much more over time. The NGO employs full time Khmer teachers (once former students), who teach in the gallery, as well as in local Schools within and on the outskirts of Siem Reap. It also hosts internationally renowned artists who conduct in-house workshops and has full-scale art exhibitions.
