Chill out in Cam­bo­dia.

Siem Reap is a bustling and beau­ti­ful Cam­bo­dian city. The main street, aptly called “Pub St”, is filled with trav­ellers, thump­ing bass and rev­elry into the early morn­ing. It’s a place where it’s not at all un­usual to be talked into a fish pedi­cure at 3am or be whisked away by a tuk­tuk driver with ques­tion­able road skills. In a city so full of life, find­ing tran­quil­lity can seem un­likely, but it’s def­i­nitely not im­pos­si­ble. Stephanie Squadrito

Stroll the AR­TI­SAN MAR­KET in town for silk scarves, soaps and bags hand­made by lo­cals; face­book.com/ madein­cam­bo­dia­mar­ket. Ex­pe­ri­ence a peace­ful side to the city with a BIKE RIDE of the nearby countryside. Re­fresh with an af­ter­noon dip in the pool at the lux­u­ri­ous ANANTARA ANGKOR RE­SORT; angkor. anantara.com. Try con­tem­po­rary Kh­mer spe­cial­i­ties at CHI RESTAU­RANT & BAR; angkor. anantara.com/ chi-restau­rant-bar. 4 Rise early and head to ANGKOR WAT to see the sun­rise over this iconic tem­ple.
