Siem Reap Vistior Guide 59th
A n island set in a rice paddy countryside, the provincial capital of Siem Reap City serves as the gateway to the millennium-old ruins of the Khmer Empire of Angkor. Siem Reap City is where you will probably stay during your visit, just 15 min- utes from the temples. The town offers a large and varied choice of accom- modations, from boutique hotels and 5-star resorts to dozens of mid-range places and budget digs. But it’s the restaurants, shopping and nightlife where Siem Reap outdoes itself - the amazingly varied dining choices, the vibrant night scene, and uniquely Cambodian shopping opportunities. The Angkor Archaeological Park encompasses dozens of temple ruins
including the legendary Angkor Wat whose cultural significance and visual impact put it in a class with the wolrd’s greatest monuments. And though the temples are very well touristed these days, it is still possible to capture a bit of the old spirit and discover Angkor...and Cambodia. Try to set aside some time to experience a bit of Khmer culture and nature away from the town and temples: boat trips on the Tonle Sap, stilted villages and the bird sanctuary, silk farms, road tours through rural countryside and beyond.
