This little known attraction houses an interesting collection of rusty relics left over from Cambodia's Khmer Rouge era.

Lots of good information available and the museum also has a couple of former soldiers, with their own interesting stories, on hand for guided tours.

Open: Daily, 8am to 5pm.


Wat Tmei

Just off the main road to Angkor Wat, this small pagoda is home to Siem Reap's very own 'killing field' stupa, as a tribute to those in the province who perished at the hands of the Khmer Rouge.

A small island in the middle of the lake houses the Angkor era West Mebon temple ruin. Swimming is perfectly safe in the lake. A nice spot to relax like a local for a few hours!

FURTHER AFIELD

Banteay Srey and Kbal Spean

Fancy a welcome change from the standard (if you can call them that!) temples around Angkor Wat? The delicate river carvings and waterfall at Kbal Spean offer an interesting trip further away, combined with a visit to the more isolated, and very intricately carved, temple of Banteay Srey. A valid Angkor Wat pass is required for entry.

Phnom Bok

Phnom Bok is a small temple located on the top of a hill around 25km from Siem Reap. There are 618 steps to get to the top of the hill, but anyone who braves the heat to get there will be rewarded with spectacular 360 degree views, and will probably also have the whole area to themselves!

Phnom Kulen

Phom Kulen is a mountain around 60km north of Siem Reap which boasts pre Angkor Wat temples and carvings, a pagoda with a huge reclining Buddha and a large waterfall with plenty of relaxation areas and safe, refreshing swimming spots.

Beng Melea

The more remote temple of Beng Melea is situated in the jungle 70km from Siem Reap. The temple itself has not been cleared or restored at all and offers a unique sense of discovery. Walkways left over from the shooting of a movie there allow you to easily scale the site, te more adventurous can scramble over an under the mountains of huge collapsed stones that fill the courtyards. Beng Melea feels just like you are on the set of an Indiana Jones movie!
