This Cambodian town’s got tour guides like New York’s got subway stops: endless numbers of beguiling individuals promising to deliver the skinny on Angkor Wat—the world’s largest religious structure—and its best buys and bars. Ly Sarith and Mr. Dane, both available to guests of the Amansara resort here, ably combine the roles of cultural expert and man-about-town. Sarith, 50, focuses on the main temple complex and descriptions of Khmer culture, while Dane, all of 26, appeals to a younger set, seeking out remote temples and highlighting colonial events. Away from the World Heritage site, both point the way to the best Pacific Rim cuisine and the smartest handspun silk apparel. Book through email@example.com.
