    Travel and Local Information Guide

    Located between rice paddies and flanking the Siem Reap River, the small provincial capital of Siem Reap serves as the gateway to the millenniums-old temple ruins of the Khmer Empire, Angkor Wat. Being a tourist destination for over 100 years, Siem Reap has plentiful accommodation, ranging from simple guesthouses around the old market to five-star resorts nearer the airport.

    The town is actually the result of a conglomeration of several small villages built around several pagodas and subsequently united under the French, and Siem Reap's architecture reflects their influence. Despite its rural location, the town has a healthy nightlife and good restaurants are not hard to find.

SIM Cards and dialing prefixes


Tourist SIM cards are now available from about a few US$ each and they last for two weeks. They can be purchased at most hotels, post offices and supermarkets. Officially a non-Cambodian cannot buy a SIM card for their mobile phone for longer than two weeks. Alternatively, why not bring along your phone with its normal SIM card in it with international roaming activated. It’s simple and safe.

Getting Around Siem Reap


Siem Reap City is a compact kind of town in which visitors can get around by foot. Though the main attraction, the Angkor Wat is only some 6km away, still it’s best to go there by tour or take some kind of local transportation whether its car, tuk tuk (a two-person motorcycle trailer) or motorcycle taxi. The good point is they are everywhere and will probably find you before you find them.

The Angkor Archaeological Park is where the famous Angkor Wat is located and it covers an area of about 3-4km. Visiting the place with a tour guide and driver, is the most popular and convenient way of seeing this huge park. Horse carriages, elephant rides and electric cars are available. Some people prefer to rent a bicycle.
