The gateway to the Temples of Angkor, the small town of Siem Reap has recently exploded in size as the interest in the temples has gone astronomical. Morphing into the ultimate tourist destination, Siem Reap is a vibrant place to be, full of stylish restaurants, a range of hotels and a pulsing bar culture and nightlife. It is also one of the best place in the country to learn about traditional Khmer arts and crafts and has plenty of galleries and boutiques in which to hunt for souvenirs. Perfectly located just 5 kilometres from Angkor Wat, Siem Reap offers exactly the right elements needed for some post-temple-exploration relaxation time.
