Siem Reap Town is where you will probably stay during your visit. The area has been receiving foreign visitor to the temples for more than 120 years. The town is actually a cluster of old villages, which originally developed around individual pagodas, and was later overlain with a French colonial-era center. Take note of the colonial style architecture – heavy European structures and modified Chinese shop housees in the old French Quarter and around the Old market. Nowadays Siem Reap offers a wide range of mid-range places and plenty of budget guesthouses, as well as an amazing variety of restaurants, lots of shopping opportunities and a vibrant nightlife.
Often missed are the many opportunities to experience traditional Cambodia boat trips on the great Tonle Sap Lake to visit fishing villages and the Prek Toal bird sanctuary, craft shops and silk farms, road tours through rice-paddy countryside to disant temples and Helicopter Charter, Balloon Rides, Elephant Rides, Tuk Tuk, Motor, Bicycle.
