Siem Reap, literally “Siam Defeated,” was once the splendor of the Orient until its turbulent demise. However, the only rampaging hordes found here now are the tourists heading to its famous Angkor Wat temple complex. This once quaint village has become the largest boomtown and construction site in Cambodia. Its laid-back atmosphere and pleasant citizens offer a great environment in which to view the ancient temples and surrounding landmarks.
While in Siem Reap, if nothing else, visit Angkor Wat. The tours are endless, much like the splendor of the complex, and will offer you incredible photographs and memories. There are countless cultural villages, Khmer cooking classes, shopping and entertainment options.
