Siem Reap Overview

Siem Reap City


Siem Reap Town stretches about 2km north/south along the Siem Reap River and roughly 3-4km east/west along Rte. #6. The airport sits 6km from town. The main temple complex lies about 5-10km north of town. All of the hotels are in or near town, and are spread relatively evenly across the town, though there are still concentrations in certain parts of town: 1) there are a variety of hotels, shops and restaurants near the Old Market; 2) several large upscale hotels between the airport and town along Rte. #6; 3) two budget oriented areas: one along ‘Wat Bo’ Road and the other in the Taphul Village area; 4) a variety of mid-range hotels and restaurants along Sivatha; the Phsar Leu area 2 km east of town center.

 Sihanoukville (Kampong Som)


The main body of Sihanoukville is spread thinly across a peninsula-like spit of land, surrounded on three sides by beaches. Near the center of the peninsula, 1-3km from the beaches, the downtown area contains the main market, hotels, restaurants, bus stations and other businesses. Hotels and restaurants can be found across the peninsula, but many are concentrated into three areas: 1) downtown; 2) Ochheuteal and ‘Serendipity’ ; 3) Victory Hill (a.k.a. Weather Station Hill).

Battambang City sits along the Sangker River with the main section of the city the on west side. Parks line sections of the riverfront on both sides. Four bridges cross the river. The 'Old Stone Bridge' is restricted to pedestrians and motorcycles. The eastern approach to the city on Route #5 is marked by a statue of Ta Dambong holding bat dambang, the stick from which the city derives its name. Three main north/south roads ( #1, #2 and #3) form the spine of the business district. The town is only a couple of kilometers long and is relatively easily traversed by foot, bicycle, or a bit more quickly by motorcycle taxi.
