Siem Reap

After a politically unstable history in the 20th century, the province of Siem Reap (literally “conquest of Siam”) in northern Cambodia has developed into one of the most important tourist centers in the region of East Asia in the past 15 years. A central part of the tourist development of the region lies in the rediscovery of the temple complex of Angkor Wat, which is located a few kilometers north of the regional capital Siem Reap (almost 150,000 inhabitants). Nevertheless, travelers who are not only interested in spiritual and archaeological issues will get their money's worth in Riem Seap. Relaxing boat trips over the Tonle Sap, on the banks of which the city lies, challenging bike tours into the natural beauties of the area or exploring with trained guides, who provide interesting information about the traditions and history of the Khmer, offer the right holiday experience for all age groups. Siem Reap is undoubtedly famous for the nearby temple complex of Angkor Wat. In addition, the Angkor region with its cultural and tourist center Siem Reap offers numerous other opportunities to get to know Cambodia with its rich history, its unique cuisine, its fascinating culture and its sometimes unusual sports activities. Peace and relaxation can be found in Siem Reap as well as with small adventures on tours in the near and far surroundings, with which the spirit of discovery can be satisfied on vacation.
