Siem Reap on a budget
While the temples and other attractions might be a little bit pricey, there are still plenty of things to do in Siem Reap that won't make your bank manager bust a sweat. Whether you're keen on getting out of town on a bike ride, catching a boat to a tiny island, with its own tumble-down temple, or learning the secrets of silk production, there's plenty to keep you moving.

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. You can also hire hammocks for about a dollar, and picnic on the freshly prepared food sold from about a dozen stalls. Less
