Siem Reap

Siem Reap in Cambodia means “Siam Defeated“, referring to the 16th century victory that solidified the Khmer Kingdom from the Thais. Located in western Cambodia, it is a small town located 6 kilometers south of the world famous temples of the ancient city of Angkor. Siem Reap is now populated by large five-star hotels and resorts, numerous restaurants and shops catering to the many tourists visiting the temples. An international airport handles flights from Southeast Asia.

A break from all the temples is the floating village of Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia that provides a glimpse of river life complete with a floating school and convenience stores.
