Wat Bo hotels
Wat Bo is a temple located in the Cambodian city of Siem Reap. Built in the 19th century, it is one of the oldest temples in Siem Reap province and is considered a living, working temple. Monks live onsite and go about their daily prayers and activities there. The area around the temple is referred to as Wat Bo, and is populated with backpacker hostels and restaurants. The city is very well known as the gateway town to Angkor Wat, yet a visit to a “working temple” like Wat Bo can provide a unique and interesting perspective on Cambodian life.
- Admire the 19th century murals depicting the Ramayana (the Cambodian version), located on the interior of Wat Bo’s main temple.
- Try a local specialty like Khmer barbecue at one of the many restaurants that line the east end of Wat Bo Road in Siem Reap, such as Beaches or Mr. Grill (for the barbecue).
- Marvel at the sheer number of stupas (tall, spire-like shrines), which exist at Siem Reap’s famed temple, where you will see stupas of different sizes, colours, and designs.
There is an international airport in Siem Reap (airport code REP), that serves flights from Cambodia and from around the region. You can enter the must-see city from there via taxicab or tuk-tuk. Many travellers arrive in the city via bus, from different places in Cambodia. The most common ways to get around the city are by tuk-tuk, hired car with driver, bicycle, or on foot. Siem Reap centre and Wat Bo can be navigated by walking. Wat Bo is a well-known compound, and drivers will know where it is.
