Siem Reap

Cambodia_Siem Reap_1Siem Reap Town has been receiving foreign visitors to the temples for over 100 years.

The town is actually a cluster of old villages, which originally developed around individual pagodas, and later overlaid with an French colonial-era center.

Note the colonial and Chinese style architecture in the town center and around the Old Market.

Nowadays, Siem Reap offers a wide range of hotels, restaurants, pubs  and  shops including several upscale hotels and dozens of budget guesthouses.

Often missed are the many opportunities to experience traditional Cambodia: ‘Apsara’ dance performances, craft shops and silk farms, road tours through rice-paddy countryside, boat trips on the great Tonle Sap Lake to fishing villages and bird sanctuary, and much more.
