Siem Reap is slowly regenerating its 1960s popularity and is increasingly becoming the epicentre of the newly reborn Cambodia.
The main excitement for travellers visiting Siem Reap is its close proximity to the temples of Angkor Wat, although it does have other key areas of interest from the rice-paddy countryside to the main small, quaint fishing villages. For ornithologists, there is a bird sanctuary near the impressive Tonle Sap Lake.
