Siem Reap

Siem Reap is a very small and walk-able city and just a few miles from one of the greatest treasures in the world - the magnificent remains of Angkor Wat. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing the magnificent remains of the Khmer civilization.

In the ninth century, the Khmer established Angkor as the capital of their huge kingdom stretching from present-day Thailand to Vietnam's Mekong Delta. For the next six centuries they ruled one of the largest empires in South East Asia. Angkor cultivated a power base of a mighty military and political force, and a rich and sophisticated civilisation. The ruins seen today represent successive capitals constructed by a dozen Khmer kings, between the 9th and 13th Centuries. These were cities of massive stone temples, wide majestic causeways, thrusting towers and imposing gates. The sheer size and magnificence of Angkor Wat is compelling.

There is plenty of lively night-life available in Siem Reap. From dinner theatre with traditional cuisine and performing arts to Western bars, there should be something to suit your preference. Most of the popular bars, both Cambodian and Western in style, are at the Old Market area.
