Located between rice paddies and flanking the Siem Reap River, the small provincial capital of Siem Reap serves as the charming gateway to the millennium-old temple ruins of the Khmer Empire, Angkor Wat. 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 this influence.
