"Siem Reap" Siem Reap by JessieLang

Siem Reap Travel Guide: 311 reviews and 1,072 photos

Siem Reap is the capital city of Siem Reap Province in northwestern Cambodia, and the place to stay when visiting the Angkor region. It is easy to get here--the airport is only a few miles from town, and it is one of the more attractive airports I have seen

Siem Reap is one of the larger cities in Cambodia (about 175,000 population) but it has a small town feel to it because most visitors only see the area around the Old French Quarter

This part of town is a colorful mixture of French colonial and Chinese-style architecture, with lots of restaurants and bars catering to the tourist trade. The Old Market has plenty of souvenirs, but also items needed in daily life.

Motorcycle rickshaws abound, especially in the French Quarter, and they are an inexpensive way to get around town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Proximity to Angkor Wat

    The floating village is so interesting and the Banteay Srei is so ancient and beautiful. Nice page Jessie!
