Siem Reap is located in the northwest of Cambodia.
The Town is a cluster of small villages along the Siem Reap River. These villages were originally developed around Buddhist pagodas (Wat) which are almost evenly spaced along the river.
The main town is concentrated around Sivutha Street and the Psar Chas area (Old Market area) where there are old colonial buildings, shopping and commercial districts.
The Old Market is located between Pub Street and Siem Reap River. It offers a mixture of souvenirs for tourists and a variety of food products and other items meant for the locals.
As the gateway to the Angkor temples attracting tourists from all over the world, the city is a vibrant, cosmopolitan drinking and dining scene.
