Have you been to Ta Prohm?
Ta Prohm is the modern name of the temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries.
You will find a lot of trees growing out of the ruins in this place! Many people have also remembered the temple of Ta Prohm from the film Tomb Raider!
And the photo below is Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft at Ta Prohm.
Siem Reap, Cambodia is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world to visit if you have not visit! You are advise to spend at least a 4D3N to have a greater experience there.
I will be sharing my 4D3N experience in a few posts (Accomodation, Attraction and Food).
And I am starting it with the accommodation at Shinta Mani Club.
During my 4D3N at Siem Reap, Cambodia, I stayed with Shinta Mani Club!
Shinta Mani Club, an upscale boutique hotel created by acclaimed architect Bill Bensley, showcases 39 contemporary designed rooms and public spaces in an Angkorian-inspired design. This exceptional Angkor hotel enjoys a tranquil and leafy setting within the township of Siem Reap – just a 15 minute tuktuk ride from the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat.

After staying there for 4D3N in Shinta Mani, I really enjoyed myself! The hotel is very peaceful and strategically located within the township of Siem Reap. It is also just a fifteen minute tuk tuk ride away from the magnificent Temples of Angkor Wat. You can take a walk to the Old market, the cafes and bars of the vibrant tourist trail and only footsteps from the tranquillity of the nearby riverfront.
Other nearby attractions include the Kings Palace and Royal Gardens. And guests of Shinta Mani Club may also enjoy the facilities of the nearby Shinta Mani Resort – located just opposite the Club.
That's wonderful! For every night staying with Shinta Mani, Shinta Mani will donate USD5 to the Shinta Mani Foundation to help achieve their goal of creating a lasting and positive impact for the people of Cambodia. Shinta Mani Club with its “Open Doors, Open Hearts” reflects their commitment to responsible tourism. Read more about the foundation here.
Lastly don't forget to catch the MUST WATCH evening entertainment (TripAdvisor & Lonely Planet) Phare, the Cambodian Circus during your stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia!!!
