See Angkor by Romouque

Most of the people who visit Angkor use a romouque (motor trailer) during their stay in Siem Reap. Romouques were developed from pedal-cycle trailers, and are a fun, breezy way to travel around town and see the temples.

Angkor is ideal for these vehicles, as the roads are good and the distances are not too great. I can meet you at the bus station or airport, and if you'd like a monument visit I can usually offer a free transfer to your hotel. Some drivers try to persuade visitors away from their chosen lodgings to a guesthouse or hotel that pays them commission. I never do this.

The usual practice is to hire romouque and driver for a complete visit. Drivers normally wait outside the temples as they are not able to accompany tourists inside, or act as guides.

Romouques are designed for two people, and the rate is around $7 for a half day for one or two people, and $12/$15 for a full day.

Some of the places you can visit include:

  • Angkor Wat at sunrise or sunset, or by hot-air balloon

  • All the major temples in Siem Reap, from the world-famous Angkor Wat and Ta Prom (featured in the film "Tomb Raider") to the beautiful Banteay Srei, built in pink sandstone and featuring wonderfully intricate carving

  • Angkor Thom, the Bayon, Phimeanakas, the Terrace of the Leper King, Victory Gate and Preah Khan

  • Pub Street and Siem Reap's night market

  • Siem Reap's artisan centre, where craftsmen and their apprentices make traditional Khmer products from silk, wood and stone

  • Wat Thmei (the local monument to the dead of the Killing Fields)

  • The Rolous group of temples – the three main ones are Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong (the first major capital of the Angkorian-era Khmer empire)

  • The floating villages of Tonle Sap, Cambodia's great lake and the largest freshwater lake in southeast Asia. This includes a boat trip and a visit to a crocodile farm

  • Beng Mealea (a sprawling jungle temple)

  • Kbal Spean (literally "the river of 1,000 linga"; it also features carvings of Buddha and Buddhist images in the rock of the riverbed)

All trips can include lunch and/or dinner, with Khmer food.
I can also arrange for you to see some traditional apsara dancing in the evening.
