Beyond ancient Angkor lies more Cambodian wonders

The splendour of the ancient temple ruins of Angkor Wat is hard to deny, but beyond the wonders of the ancient Khmer kingdom, nearby Siem Reap and Tonle Sap Lake offer luxury travellers a world of unforgettable experiences.

Uncover Siem Reap’s burgeoning haute cuisine scene. Khmer fine dining can be experienced in the first Cambodian restaurant to earn a place on the San Pellegrino ‘Top 50 Restaurants in Asia’ list, Cuisine Wat Damnak. Or perhaps experience a luxury cooking class to learn the ingredients and techniques used to prepare delicious Khmer food, before sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

For a change of pace, a day trip to the great Tonle Sap Lake allows guests to experience the lifeblood of Cambodia. Jump aboard your private boat to experience an amazing journey across the vast lake, crossing floodplains and flooded forests to reach South East Asia’s largest bird colony. Spot for rare birds, then board your kayak to explore the nearby floating village. Enjoy a unique perspective of the lifestyle and culture of Cambodian river villages.

There is so much more to Siem Reap than its ancient wonders. Discover more of Cambodia’s hidden treats on a Seven Skies Cambodia experience.
