The name Siem Reap literally means “Siam Defeated”. It was because of the victory over the Thais which King Ang Chan (1516-1566) counter-attacked, shot Prince Ong dead on an elephant’s back, and routed the Thais and captured no less than 10,000 Thai troops. Siem Reap is best known as the gateway to the incredible ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat and the remains of the Khmer Empire’s former capital.

Angkor is rightly considered to be one of the world’s most spectacular and important historic areas, and is featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Some 400 square kilometers of land is included in the region, from forested areas to the Angkor Archaeological Park, where the temple of Angkor Wat and the Bayon Temple can be found.

Today, Siem Reap is a popular tourist destination which has a large number of hotels and restaurants. Siem Reap also boasts several vibrant night markets, where souvenirs like silk scarves and wood carvings can be purchased.
