Arty Siem Reap
Art and culture lovers are easily stimulated in Siem Reap. Forget the history of an empire, you can scramble the temples for the art alone, with Angkor Wat and the Bayon being the highlights when it comes to bas-reliefs and carvings. The Angkor National Museum is home to fine sculptures and carvings. There are a handful of galleries and a few arty festivals, however, it's the cultural arena where Siem Reap really shines, from the classical Apsara dance shows to the kooky Phare Cambodian Circus.
