Siem Reap

Siem Reap (Khmer: ក្រុងសៀមរាប, pronounced [siəm riəp]; Thai: เสียมราฐ) is the capital city of Siem Reap Province in northwestern Cambodia. It is a popular resort town and a gateway to the Angkor region.

Siem Reap has colonial and Chinese-style architecture in the Old French Quarter, and around the Old Market. In the city, there are museums, traditional Apsara dance performances, a Cambodian cultural village, souvenir and handycraft shops, silk farms, rice-paddies in the countryside, fishing villages and a bird sanctuary near the Tonle Sap Lake.

Siem Reap today—being a popular tourist destination—has a large number of hotels, resorts, restaurants and businesses closely related to tourism. This is much owed to its proximity to the Angkor temples, the most popular tourist attraction in Cambodia.

Pub Street Siem Reap is the definitive nightlife hub of the town, featuring rows of backpacker-friendly bars and pubs, packed nightclubs, and international restaurants. A must-visit for any first-time visitor to the historical town, Pub Street stays open throughout the day and late into the night, sometimes until 04:00.

Angkor Night Market is Siem Reap’s most renowned shopping venue, housing over 200 bamboo huts selling a wide range of clothing and handicrafts by local communities and non-governmental organizations. Located in downtown Siem Reap, this outdoor market was established in 2007 in an effort to help preserve traditional Khmer handicrafts and improve the lives of Khmer people.

It's the biggest-scale trick art museum in the world to allow 5 million tourists who visit Cambodia every year to see the world heritage sites without any climate interruptions such as sweltering heat or rainy season. It's built by skilful experience and technology that triumphed people both in Korea and many other countries, therefore it can surely be called as the 'sypremacy of the trick art'.

The shooting range in Siem Reap is inside an old, rundown building, and the guns are similarly aged. A lot of the weapons are remnants from Cambodia’s brutal dictatorship under the Khmer Rouge so don’t expect the latest military hardware. Many of the AK47s look and feel like they’ve been through the wars (which they probably have).
