Siem Reap Wat and Pagoda Walk

The pagodas of Siem Reap may not be as old as Angkor, just a few hundred years... but the everyday Buddhist rites are eternal. Superb carpentry, masonry and woodwork, intricate painted frescoes mix with serene stupas to create a leisurely self guided walking tour.

Most visitors to Siem Reap come to visit the temples of Angkor. For those who stay a bit longer or who get templed-out after a few days, but still hunger for cultural visits, a tour of Siem Reap’s wats (or modern pagodas) can be a perfect outing.
