Yes loads! Angkor Wat is just one of hundreds of temples scattered all over Cambodia, many within easy reach of Siem Reap. In addition there is much to see that is not a historical monument, such as a landmine museum, silk weaving village, a cultural centre, many rural Khmer villages, forested mountaintop temples... There are great mountain bike rides to make, elephant safaris, boat trips on the vast Tonle Sap lake to visit sunken forests and mediaeval-aged floating villages. The world's largest breeding ground for the tallest standing flighted bird, the Sarus Crane, is also in Siem Reap province.

- Rent a bicycle and cycle through the local villages on the riverside
- Wander around the night market
- Visit Artisans D'Angkor
- Sign up for a free tour of the silk weaving farms from above
- there is also a resyaurant there, although I forget where which serves up local delicacies like snake etc, if you like that sort of thing.
Also, if you weant to see floating villages and are thinking of going to Battambang, then I would recommend getting the boat between the two, as you will get your transport and tour throen in together! almost 7 years ago
