    Angkor Wat after dark

    Daytime will be too hot and humid for traveler to explore around, if you think of watching the Sunrise and the Sunset at Angkor area, when you finished the Sunrise sections, you can rest and have a wonderful massage for hours at the pool side in the hotel, or you can sleep in the air-conditioning room after your lunch for 2, 3 hours, then continue your 2nd half of the journey to explore the sunset of Angkor ruins.

    See globally, act locally

    All you need to do is stroll along the lake, walking along the path way. The will come and talk to you.

    `Sir, do you want to buy postcards?'. If yes, stopped them and then you can start the conversations.

    Lakeside at Amgkor Wat

    Before the sky getting dark, most of the locals coming out and stroll along the front yard of Angkor Wat.

    This is the great chances to see the Cambodian, to know the locals and to understand them better.

    Best Spot for Sunrise

    by o00o Updated Jul 29, 2004

    Best Spot for Sunrise

    If you are smart enough, go the front yard, before hitting the Angkor lakes, turn to the right and keep walking to the edge of the right-sided lake. Why? Because this is the best point to view the sun raise and the Angkor with 5 towers. It appeals almost in all poster and postcard.

    Banana Leaf

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jun 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Banana Leaf is a busy nightspot for eating and drinking, and is frequented by a large number of French customers. Beer here is US$1 per can and includes a nice bowl of snacks. Be careful... the toilet is behind the bar, so you have to walk through the bartenders' domain... but at least you don't have to wipe with a banana leaf!

    Angkor What?

    by Ewingjr98 Written Jun 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Angkor What is one of the most popular night spots in Siem Reap, but it is pretty average. There is not much of a crowd here early in the evening, and all of the patrons and employees are westerners. Angkor What? has a pool table with indoor and outdoor seating. I had an Angkor beer in a huge bottle for US$1.50.

    Red Piano: Angelina Jolie

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My precious!

    If you are an AJ fan, it is cool to know that your butt has sat where her butt has. Or is that just me? Anyway, at the Red Piano Bar, you can do just that. The have a drink named after her and you can see where she sat her in pictures. So, just triangulate her position and just wait for the idiot sitting there to move! It’s just that easy!

    OK, enough of that. The restaurant is in the "nightlife area" of Siem Reap, where lots of bars cater to the tourists. There is actually a bar ran and owned by an American who has relocated here across the street diagonally from the Red Piano. Both are great spots to have a few Angkor or Anchor beers.

    Old Market Area

    by pmarshuk Updated Dec 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I was staying close to the Old Market area(Psah Chas) that's where I tended to head for at nights. There are quite a few bars and restuarants in this area but because of the lack of tourists at the moment they were all pretty quiet. Among the more popular were the Red Piano, Angkor What and Le Tigre de Papier (a bookstore/bar/cafe). Also I heard the Ivy bar can get quite lively - but not while I was there.

    Dress Code: Definite casual.
    Lots of backpackers use these bars.

    Traditional Cambodian Dancing

    by pmarshuk Updated Dec 17, 2003

    Many restaurants and hotels in Seam Reap. I can't remember the name of the one I went to, but because of the lack of tourists at the time there were only a dozen or so people there which ruined the atmosphere. However the dancing was really interesting with each one telling a story, you have to watch the hand movements of the girls they are so expressive.
    The food was a huge buffet of lots of different styles of food. I had a mixture of Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese. It was ok but nothing too special.

    Dress Code: Most people were dressed in smart casual.

    by sunnywong Updated Dec 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A traditional apsara dance shows that is an absolute must for the visitor to Cambodia. Nightly dinner-theater performances are held at several locations including Apsara Theatre, Grand Hotel D’Angkor Performance Hall, Bayon II Restaurant, Chao Pra Ya Restaurant, Hotel Sofitel Royal Angkor and Koulen II Restaurant. Apsara Theatre’s elegant wooden performance hall and the Grand’s Performance Hall’s beautiful riverside venue have gained them both good reviews. Performances include a dinner of Khmer cuisine. Some venues offer ‘performance-only' seats. Traditional dances such as the graceful apsara dance, the light-hearted coconut dance, the fun and romantic fishing dance, excerpts from the Ramayana and other selections are performed. Dinner is at 7:00PM. Performances begin at 7:30 or 8:00PM and last about an hour.

    The Ivy Bar in Siem Riep was...

    by lenoreva Updated Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Ivy Bar in Siem Riep was pretty happening. Apparently the Cambodian gov. has recently banned Karoke and disco type establishments. You never know when that will change though. Definitly check out www.talesofasia.com for the latest info on this and other subjects!

    Sunset Boulevard d'Angkor

    Angkor wat close at 18:00pm. The sky still bright and you can't see the sunset here.

    But look at the sky, sunset clouds always beautiful and colorful.
