Siem Reap exists as the gateway to nearby Angkor Wat, so you might expect it to be a terrible place that one must tolerate in order to visit the amazing temples, but it’s actually a lovely little town that is a good place to just hang around for a while if you have some time. Hotels in Siem Reap range from very cheap to world-class resorts, and quality at the low end is generally pretty good. You’ll even find the cheapest hostel beds in the world in Siem Reap.
