Siem Reap Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local

Siem Reap Urban Adventures offers sightseeing tours in Siem Reap that open the gateway to the amazing UNESCO World Heritage archaelogical site of Angkor. These 1000 year old ruins are the remains of the highly developed Khmer empire. Nestled between rice paddies and the Siem Reap River, and not far from the Tonle Sap Lake biosphere reserve, the township is a great base from which to explore.

To get a taste of the highlights of Angkor and to dig deeper into the heart and sole of Cambodia, join one of our Siem Reap Urban Adventures tours. Spend a day exploring the magnificent temples of the Angkor complex on Angkor Adventure. Begin with Angkor Wat - the most famous and well preserved of them all. Wander through the stunning Bayon with its 54 towers decorated with more than 200 enigmatice smiling faces. Enjoy a Khmer lunch and get in touch with your inner explorer as you wander around the jungle temple Ta Prohm.


Jump into a moto-remork (articulated moto-rickshaw) to visit a local fruit market and stroll through the alleyways of a bustling market. Then explore the stalls and bright lights at Siem Reap’s largest local picnic spot and try authentic Siem Reap street food.


Discover the Tonle Sap Secrets as you explore the backroads on this facinating journey in the Cambodian countryside. See seasonal activities like cricket catching, rice planting, fish smoking and prahoc making. Take a boat trip on the Tonle Sap Lake to one of the world's more productive bodies of fresh water - the Tonle Sap World Heritage Biosphere Reserve.

Our guide Chanmol did a fantasatic job taking us on both the Tonle Sap Secrets and locals' night market tours. His enthusiasm, friendliness, great knowledge and very high level of English made our tours excellent value and enjoyment. He should be commended for such a great effort and skill.

This was a great half day tour and would highly recommend it. The service from this company was great. I booked last minute and recieved a call the morning of the tour just to say they recieved my booking and were on there way. The only problem with the booking service is the timeframe of pickup 8-8.45 thats a big gap. Mr. Chanmol was the guide on this tour and he was amazing, he had extensive knowledge about the lake and the floating villages,was really friendly and spoke well. Overall was a great experience

Mr Chanmol was a very knowledgeable and dedicated guide. Perhaps the whole day was a little too long in the heat & humidity and we were all flagging towards the end ! One suggestion - that you should provide cold water throughout the trip. We brought water along but used it up quickly in the heat

Had an excellent tour of the 3 key temples in the Angkor Archaeological park. Our guide, Keon LEE was excellent and very informative and even had good anecdotes to provide us a broad perspective of the history and culture of the Angor cities.

Responsible Travel with Urban Adventures

At Urban Adventures, we firmly believe local travel is one of the best ways we can support responsible tourism. In fact, we believe it so strongly that we’ve made it our entire business! All our tours are run by local experts, not some faceless corporate team located halfway around the world with no sense of the local vibe.

We craft our tours to ensure every traveller has authentic interactions with local people, businesses, transportation, and food and drink. Local travel gives you the opportunity to experience a destination as locals do, and has the potential to impact you in ways you never imagined. In short: local is awesome.

As a responsible travel company, we promise to:

  • Use locally owned infrastructure on our tours whenever possible.
  • Spread the financial benefits amongst local people and operators.
  • Provide employment and leadership opportunities for local people.
  • Respect local customs and culture.
  • Provide safe tours for Urban Adventure partners, staff, and travellers.
  • Educate travellers and our partners about how and why we choose to travel this way.
  • Limit any negative impact to the daily lifestyles of local people.
  • Limit any physical impact on natural and cultural environments.
  • Provide support to organisations and local communities.
  • Provide opportunities for travellers to interact with local people.
  • Actively ban partners, staff, and passenger participation in or endorsement of commercial sexual activities or illegal drug use on Urban Adventures tours.
  • Work to prevent the exploitation of children in tourism.
  • Actively discourage participation in activities that exploit animals.
  • Use local partners that adhere to Urban Adventures' responsible travel principles.
  • Support and encourage fair employment practices.
  • Give our travellers the best possible value.
  • Have fun!

As a traveller, we ask that you keep the following in mind:

  • People: Be mindful of the local citizens, and seek understanding through shared experiences. Consider their customs and values while in their homeland, and when in doubt, ask your guide for advice.
  • Environment: Be mindful of the local environment, and act with conservation and sustainability in mind. Follow local guidelines, as recommended by your guide, and make proactive decisions on your own.
  • Culture: When travelling to other cultures, remember that not everyone's customs are the same as yours at home. Be respectful, and be mindful of openly questioning a customary practice, even if you disagree with it. Try to understand from their perspective. You may learn something! Your guide will be an excellent point of reference here, so check with them if you're unsure.
  • Economy: Make every effort to use local businesses and put your tourism dollars in the right (local) pocket. We use local vendors and businesses, and your guide will be able to advise you on the best ways to support the local economy.
