Siem Reap, which literally means the “Defeat of Siam”, is the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the famous Angkor Wat Temple Region and is the most prosperous region of Cambodia today. Due to its location, close to the Angkor Wat temple complex, the city has turned into one of the world’s premier travel destinations. Siem Reap is also located close to the great Tonle Sap Lake which means that besides a must visit to the Angkor temple complex it also offers great trips out to and on to Tonle Lake. Local people literally live in small (fishing) villages on the water or in stilt houses on the lake banks. Its like life stood still here and in many ways it is still the same as centuries ago. A visit to the lakes floating and or fishing villages or the Prek Tuol Biosphere Reserve makes Siem Reap a fantastic experience.
The heart of Siem Reap’s tourist district is known as the Old Market, or Psah Chas. Over the past years this small and quite city has transformed into a bustling downtown area with a large variety of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops along with a very interesting night market.
