Siem Reap Attractions

Population 125 (city) 950 000 (Province)
Land Area 10,299 sq km (Province)

If at times it feels like everybody in Cambodia is coming from or going to Siem Reap, it's probably because they are. As the gateway to the magnificent temples of Angkor, Siem Reap is sitting on Southeast Asia’s biggest drawcard, yet the town and its people still retain their countryside outlook and wonderful sense of Cambodian hospitality.

The name Siem Reap actually means Thais defeated, in reflection of the various times the ownership over Angkor fell to expansionist Thai kingdoms and was subsequently retaken by Khmers. Located at the northwest edge of the Tonle Sap Lake or Great Lake, civilization at Angkor relied on the resource-rich lake to support the construction of the temples, some of which took decades to build.

Most of the town’s development has only occurred in the last 10 years as the various wars and political instabilities have kept travellers away until only recently. So for the time being, you can consider yourself a visitor to Cambodia that is “ahead of the tide, but with the number of annual visitors to Angkor progressively rising (more than 4.2 million in 2013) – it won’t be long before this is no longer the case.
