Siem Reap Cambodia
Gateway City to Angkor Wat Temple.

Siem Reap City is a city of contrast. Part of it still have the quiet small town feel, while part of it is starting to show the hussle of a fast developing major tourist City. Located a few km from the famous Angkor Archaelogical Park, the city is surrounded by rice fields, the Siem Reap River, and Tonle Sap Lake.

As the gateway to Angkor Wat, the city has changed to cater for almost all tastes. From bargain seeking backpackers with $3 a night accomodation and 50c a draft beer, to equasite hotels in the $500 a night range that come with your own private car and driver to take you anywhere you want to go, 24/7.

Local roadside Khmer restuarnts and shops stand shoulder to shoulder with luxery restuarnts and upmarket boutiques.

Siem Reap can be reached via water boats, bus or taxi, and Siem Reap international airport.

The city turns around tourism, and booking tours, renewing visas, getting a bus to another country such as Vietnam or Thailand, is as easy as saying yes to the many tour operators that call for your business. With over 50 temples nearby, the Kulen waterfall and Kbal Spean in the mountian, plenty of rice fields and local villages, as well as floating lake villiages to see, you will be busy for days.
