Siem Reap Hotels and Accommodation
Siem Reap is the entry point to the world famous Angkor Wat and surrounding Angkor temples. Today, much thanks to these temples, Siem Reap and Cambodia has geared itself to meet the challenges of attracting tourists from all over the world and you will find a fine selection of modern Siem Reap hotels, luxury resorts, and boutique hotels with world-class spa facilities. At the same time, Siem Reap is trying to retain its traditional moorings and you will also find many family run, budget-friendly guesthouses and there are many things to see and do in Siem Reap other than the temples....
Siem Reap - more than just the temples.
Siem Reap is basically a conglomeration of small villages along the Siem Reap River. Each village was built around Buddhist pagodas or 'wats', as the Cambodians call them. These extended from Wat Preah En Kau Sei in the north to Wat Phnom Krom in the south. Phnom Krom litteraly means 'lower mountain' and this is also where the Siem Reap River meets the great Tonle Sap Lake. Some of the buildings and hotels in Siem Reap are influenced by French and Chinese architecture, especially around the Old French Quarter and the Old Market area.
Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm and the rest of the magnificent temples of Angkor are undoubtedly Cambodia's prime tourist attraction and the main reason to visit Siem Reap for most first-time visitors. It's easy to understand why many people consider a tour to the Angkor temples as an absolute must and difficult to leave out on a list of things to see and do in Siem Reap, or the whole of Southeast Asia for that matter. We would, however, like to encourage people to stay longer and experience more.
The town itself and its surrounds offer a range of tours and activities for locals and visitors alike. The newly opened Angkor Zipline Eco-Adventure Canopy Tour where visitors can learn a little about the natural habitats as well as soaring between the treetops of Angkor has quickly become a popular attraction and a traditional Apsara dance performance is a must for many visitors. Local bicycle tours can take visitors amidst paddy fields and rural villages and Southeast Asia's greatest lake, Tonle Sap, also provides opportunities to visit some of the fishing villages scattered around the lakeshore or take a trip to the bird sanctuary.
Thanks to a leap in tourism in the country, tourism related businesses have flourished in Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, and Sihanoukville, but it is also recommended to venture 'off the beaten tracks' and check out destinations such as Battambang, Kampot, Kep, Kampong Cham, Kratie and Stung Treng.
From 5-star hotels and classy resorts to a wide range of budget guest houses and hotels, Siem Reap is gearing itself to meet the increasing demands from tourists and business travellers alike. In addition to traditional Khmer food, a wide variety of international cuisines are also available and shopping is good fun around the Old Market area (Psar Chas) and various Nignt Markets. A pulsating night life might not be the first thing that springs to mind when talking about Siem Reap, but the last few year have seen a number of stylish bars and pubs springing up alongside chic cafes and coffee shops.
What is known as the Wat Bo area offers a wide range of local guesthouses, affordable hotels and popular restaurants. The Psar Leu area, in turn, is always bustling with local trade activities. The area around Tonle Sap Lake is quite different, with floating fishing villages, paddy fields and even a bird sanctuary.
Whether you prefer to return from a long day of sightseeing Angkor Wat and the Angkor Temples and enjoy a massage in exclusive luxury or getting acquainted with the local people and lifestyle, there are a variety of Siem Reap hotels and places to stay for you. Nowhere else on the web will you find the range of accommodation we offer in the Siem Reap and Angkor region. We offer everything from 5-star luxury hotels in Siem Reap and resort-style properties to locally run guesthouses popular with backpackers and budget travellers. The suite at the non-profit hotel and restaurant training school Sala Bai, arguably, some of the best value for money you will find in the whole of Asia, but make sure to book well in advance as many of the rooms tend fo fill up quickly.
A convenient way to get to this part of South East Asia is with one of many direct flight from Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Saigon, Hanoi, Hong Kong or Taiwan. Alternatively, if you feel a bit adventurous, you can also travel overland from neighbouring Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. Especially the Mekong Cruise to and from Vietnam has received much positive feedback.
