Siem Reap

City Views Siem Reap, Cambodia 2017

Siem Reap is the capital of the province of the same name in Cambodia. It is mainly known as the city of Angkor Wat. In the immediate vicinity, about 15 kilometers, is also the largest lake Southeast Asia, the Tonle Sap.

Like Laos and Vietnam, Cambodia belonged to French Indo-China during the colonial period, and so, as in the neighboring countries, French influences on architecture and food are still evident.

The city may not seem a huge one but has almost 140,000 inhabitants. Nevertheless, everything seems manageable, even though Siem Reap is the most booming city in Cambodia. Tourism plays a significant role here, which leaves its mark on the town. So it is hardly surprising that it is the most lively in the city around Pub Street. An amusement mile, similar to the Khao San Road in Bangkok.
