For many years, travellers have flocked to this Cambodian city to explore the majestic UNESCO-listed temples of Angkor, the former centre of the Khmer Empire which ruled from the 9th to the 15th centuries—but there are so many more things to do in Siem Reap.
These days the town is more than a gateway to Angkor: it’s a destination in its own right. After a day of sightseeing, tourists and locals alike seek out rooftop cocktails, live music, design shops, tasty street eats and world-class hotels to lay their heads. You should really join them.
