Countryside Tours I grew up in Siem Reap Province in a village known as Palmtree Village. The vast majority of Cambodians live in small villages just like this one. Exploring the modern opportunities in Siem Reap and the ancient spectacles of the temples are fantastic opportunities, but to fully explore Khmer culture and the struggles that Cambodia continues to face, a trip to the countryside is essential. Cambodia is the poorest country in Southeast Asia and Siem Reap province remains the second poorest province in the country. There are many villages that I work with that love to receive foreigners for a visit. Travel with me to see water buffalo, stilt houses, and traditional rice cultivation in vibrantly green paddies. The people of the countryside are generous and friendly and life is slow. Traveling to one of these villages brings further interest and income to them. A visit to them is a way for generous individuals to help redress the economic imballance in Cambodian society. Also home stay are still available at my village

A giant reservoir constructed during the Khmer Empire, measuring 8km
long by 2.1km wide (or almost 2,300 Wembley Stadium football pitches).
Its purpose at the time it was constructed is still not clear, and the
original hypothesis, that it was used for irrigation, no longer holds
much water. In the centre, is an island with the West Mebon temple. A
great spot for walks, or a short boat ride out to the island.

SAMBO PREI KUB TEMPLES. This is a very old, and rarely visited, temple located a four hour driver from Siem Reap. The nearby Kampong Thom City is an excellent place to spend the night if you want to enjoy a leisurely trip.
The drive itself is
beautiful, a journey along the lush scenery of the Prey Preas River.
Villagers in this area specialize in meals that include crickets,
spiders, and frogs as well as sticky rice. The Sambo Prei Kuh temples were the second capital of the Khmer Empire and were built in the 7th Century by King Isanvarman I.
You cannot get to these temples by motorbike. The journey is long and requires a car, as well as a guide experienced in the area. Entrace fees to the temples are USD$10 per person. Transportation and Tour Guide costs USD$220. This is a rare temple experience that only those foreigners willing to step off the beaten path get to enjoy.
Kulen National Park with Waterfall.Kulen Mountain is around 60km north of Angkor Wat and one of the holiest places in Cambodia. The waters of the Siem Reap river, so important for the Angkor Empire,Flowed from this mountain, and visitors can still see the fertility symbols carved into the riverbed centureis ago to ensure continued prosperity.
holy men study here and ascetic hermits live in ancient pagodas. It was at Kulen that the Devaraja cult was born, turning the human rulers of the Khmer into gods. Pilgrimages are still made to the mountain and visitors can swim in the clean, cool water and examine the carvings, waves of butterflies swooping past and off into the lush jungle around.
Kulen Mountain is also the sight of the Reclining Buddha monument, a massive statue carved whole out of the mountain top in the 16th Century. During the Indochina War, bombs were dropped all around the Buddha, but none destroyed that statue. It is now a popular place for Khmer to make picnics.
