The provincial town of Siem Reap, nestled between rice paddies, stretches along the Siem Reap River. The town originally developed around individual pagodas and was later overlain with a French colonial-era center. In the Old French Quarter and around the Old Market you will note a lot of beautiful colonial style architecture. Siem Reap lies about 10km northeast of the Tonle Sap and about 6km south of the Angkor Achaeological Park. It takes 15 to 20 minutes to get to the temples by TukTuk. Due to this nearby tourist attraction, Siem Reap is one of the fastest growing towns in Cambodia and offers a wide range of hotels and guesthouses, plenty of shopping opportunities and a vibrant nightlife. You can find all kinds of cuisines on and around Pub Street including Khmer, Thai, French, Vietnamese, Indian, Italian. Some sights and activities in Siem Reap include: Angkor National Museum offers chronologically ordered galleries of Angkorian-era artefacts and multi-media presentations of Angkorian history and culture. Cultural Village is a unique cultural attraction, intended to introduce the visitor to Cambodian life and history. Cooking Classes, Apsara Dance and Buffet, Artisans d'Angkor and many more, to which I would be very happy to take you!
