Siem Reap Flights
Come to Cambodia, Where Ancient Wonders Meet the 21st Century
Centuries ago, European explorers making their way through the jungles of Cambodia stumbled upon the ancient ruins of the Angkor Wat Temple. Today, the temple and the surrounding walls, fortresses, and buildings are potent reminders of the long-lost Khmer empire.
Once little more than a fishing village, the nearby city of Siem Reap now hums with life as one of Cambodia’s major cities, offering intrepid travelers both the best in modern amenities and a gateway into the extraordinary past of an ancient civilization. Contact Global Air Charters today to schedule your charter flight to Siem Reap and immerse yourself in the history of the Khmer Empire.
Explore the Majestic Angkor Wat Temple Complex
Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Angkor Wat Temple attracts thousands of visitors to Siem Reap each year. Originally a Hindu temple, Angkor Wat was later transformed into a Buddhist site, symbolizing the religious harmony of ancient civilizations in Cambodia.
Marvel at the architectural grandeur of the temple complex, from its iconic lotus-like towers to the intricate bas-relief carvings recounting the history and mythology of the Khmer people. Be sure to arrive early enough to witness the sunrise, as the growing morning light casts a mystical glow over the entire temple complex.
Immerse Yourself in Timeless Luxury
The Grand Hotel D’Angkor is a monument to Siem Reap’s history, marrying 19th-century French Colonial architecture with traditional Khmer design flourishes. Whether you stay for a week or just drop by for a light lunch, the hotel’s fusion of history, elegance, and modern amenities make this landmark one place every traveler should visit.
Uncover History at the Terrace of the Elephants
Once serving as a platform for King Jayavarman VII to view his victorious army, the Terrace of the Elephants in Angkor Thom (so named for its adornment of intricately detailed carvings of elephants) showcases the stunning architectural prowess of the Khmer civilization.
Discover the Unique Floating Villages
To better understand how the past and present meet in Siem Reap, visit the floating villages of Kampong Phluk, where life adapts to the ebb and flow of the Tonle Sap Lake. Homes, schools, and village shops all float on the water, offering a glimpse into the resilience and ingenuity of the Cambodian people.
Shop the Lively Angkor Night Market
The Angkor Night Markets buzz with energy, offering a perfect blend of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Browse through a plethora of stalls selling everything from handicrafts to contemporary art. As night falls, the markets transform into lively hubs where you can savor local and international cuisines or relax at one of its vibrant bars.
Savor the Flavors of Traditional Khmer Cuisine
Take a culinary journey through Cambodia’s heritage. Indulge in Khmer curry, a milder version made with coconut milk, spices, chicken, potatoes, and vegetables. It is a delightful introduction to Cambodian flavors.
Enjoy the interactive fun of Cambodian barbecue (Phnom pleung), where you grill your meat on a gas-powered cooker. And be sure to try Khmer noodles (nom banh chok), a beloved breakfast dish of rice noodles topped with fish-based green curry gravy, a staple in Cambodian cuisine.
