Depending on what brings you to Siem Reap,  finding the perfect place to stay early on in your search can make all the difference in your experience. Things to consider like how long you plan on visiting and the area you prefer to stay are top things to consider. From the bustling city life to the calm and peaceful more natural areas, you can always find something that’ll match and even exceed your expectations. If you need help in deciding which area is the best for you then here are some tips to help you decide.

Old French quarter and pub street area

This is the perfect area for you if you want to see as many attraction sites as you can within a short time. Dating back to when the French used to rule this city, there is so much here for tourists. From museums to heritage buildings, you will have the best chance of getting around and exploring more about Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Another fascinating fact about this area is that several restaurants, hotels, and shops along the narrow streets come to life in the evening during when people are strolling to find dinner. While here, you should take your time to taste some of the local delicacies and even international cuisine.

Wat Bo Area

Parallel to the French Quarter from the other side of the river bank, this place got its name from one of the oldest temples. It is a few minutes away from the town center but offers a more relaxed surrounding. With numerous good hotels around this place, you will always find the best hospitality services. Additionally, there are so many significant tourists’ attraction sites here that can help you get familiar with the past and present times of Siem Reap. One of the best reasons for this place is that the hotels here cost slightly less than the ones in the Old French and Pub Street.


Charles de Gaulle Boulevard

This is a place you are most likely to see when touring Siem Reap. That is because it connects the center of Siem Reap with the famous Angkor Wat. The boulevard is a great place to stay for tourists because it is located near the temples. The typical hotels found here are five stars and can cost you quite some money. They are more luxurious hotels due to their proximity to some of the major attraction sites. If you are touring Siem for a while, then you could consider here if you can afford it. The view of the temples in the morning yellow sun will refresh your every morning plus the town center is not too far away.

Being one of the world’s leading tourist destinations, there are so many hotels in Siem, and the best thing is that they are widely scattered. Depending on the type of environment you feel will work best for you; there is always a good hotel to host you there. Never forget to consider the length of your stay and some of your interests that you would like to relate with the locals.
