Siem Reap is one of my favorite places on the planet. The city itself has its problems but it is hard not to fall in love with the temples of Angkor. Although the numbers of tourists have increased dramatically, it is still possible to feel a bit like Indiana Jones here.

It’s tough to imagine a more perfect pairing: the temples of Angkor, and the lovely tourist town of Siem Reap. After spending a long day in the heat taking in what is arguably the world’s finest temple complex, the excellent restaurants, bars, and laid-back vibe of Siem Reap are just the thing to fortify you for another awesome sunrise out in the sacred city the following day. It’s a testament to the relaxed kindness of the Cambodian people that this little town, so flooded with tourists, is also so hassle-free. Even if you come, as most do, for Angkor, with little thought to its service town, you’re likely to find yourself a Siem Reap convert by the time you leave: it’s one of the sweetest little places in SE Asia.

Siem Reap is a traveller's delight. After a long hot day of exploring the steamy ruins of Angkor Watt, prepare to overload your culinary, commercial and tactile senses with an exotic assortement of tourist temptations. Crocodile burger anyone? A four hand blind massage perhaps? Or how about a little skateboarding on top of the fav after 3am haunt, the X-Bar? Siem Reap's got all that and more!

Awesome place! I just love Siem Reap, not only because of Angkor Wat but because it is such a laid back place. Love the night market and a place called Artisans d'Angkor, a NGO dedicated to teaching new generations to make high quality handicrafts.

Siem Riep turned out to be more expensive than I anticipated. The main reason is because due to the influx of tourists that visit Angkor Wat each year, Siem Riep has turned into a tourist town. The vendors and tour guides are more aggressive so be careful. Despite this, the sight of Angkor Wat makes it all worth it.Recommended for

Siem Reap is becoming one of the backpacker ghetto, but still it has the old charm. The main street has western cafes and street food stalls at the same time. It is quite relaxing town, good to just sit around the downtown and read a book.
