Beside the obvious temples, this was my highlight! Moun, my tuk tuk driver suggested I visit and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my time! I spent the better part of the day here and really enjoyed myself. You start by going through some rooms set up a little like a museum of civilization. The. You enter into a world of recreated villages. There is a program set up where you follow along from one place to the next and a performance takes place at each of the replica villages. They are very interactive and often involve spectator participation. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained and there was even food vendors along the way between shows and all around. A very cool must see in Siem Reap!
