WITH ITS MAJESTIC SPIRES and stunning carvings, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat has long been at the top of every traveler’s Southeast Asian bucket list. It doesn’t hurt that these days, the adjacent town of Siem Reap is a bustling, vibrant destination in and of itself, complete with handicrafts made by Khmer artisans and a compelling dining scene.
