Visiting the Angkor Wat temples at night is likely to be an unforgettable experience for anyone using hotels in Siem Reap.

As part of the Angkor Wat Night Festival, the ancient complex is brought to life with live music and spectacular performances, including Cambodia's traditional Apsara dancers.

Last year, the night festival began on February 22nd and lasted until the end of the dry season, with the 2010 event expected to follow a similar arrangement.

Exploring the historic site with candles and flaming torches is an extremely dramatic way to see one of the country's most famous landmarks.

Admission to the night festival is usually priced at $15 (£9.20) and tickets can be purchased from several outlets in Siem Reap.

The price includes an evening pass for Angkor Wat and a ticket to the various performances taking place.

Most hotels in the city are willing to arrange a transfer to the site for guests, although some may choose to make their own way in a tuk tuk or by car.

Although Siem Reap is viewed among travellers as the gateway city for Angkor Wat, it also has other attractions to offer visitors.

Situated nearby is Angkor Thom, the last capital city of the Khmer Empire.
