TripAdvisor has announced that Siem Reap is a Top 5 Traveller Destination for 2016, and the New York Times has deemed it “an ideal short-break city”. A decade ago Siem Reap was the place where you stayed, ate and grabbed a beer or two between explorations of Cambodia’s 12th-century temple complex Angkor Wat.
Now the city that Angkor made is something of a destination itself, luring visitors with a lively and varied dining scene, stylish hotels, genial residents and a laid-back river town ambience.
Watch this awesome NY Times video that shows some of the commerce, style and art that make this little city great.
