Default Re: Angkor Wat

I did the standard three-day tour and another day around Siem Reap itself. It was enough time to visit the major sites but one could easily spend more time there.

The boat trip from Siem Reap to Battambang was a great experience. I would avoid the 'speedboat' if possible and take the ferry if it's running. Slower means more photo ops. The nice thing about this trip is that most of it in a fairly narrow river so it's easy to take in life along the river.

The train from Battambang to Pursat was a particular joy. A rocking and rolling wreck of a train, rarely going faster than one would ride on a bicycle.

(All of this info is three years old, stuff changes.)
