    Cambodian riel

Carpeting 10,299 square kilometres of land near the shores of the Tonle Sap Lake is one of Cambodia’s brightest and most ancient jewels: the province of Siem Reap. Its name–which means ‘Siam, defeated’–refers to the trouncing of the Thai empire in the 17th century by the Khmer kingdom. It is sometimes known as the portal to Angkor, due to its close proximity to Angkor Wat. But olden structures are not the only wonders that this region thrives with, as the Siem Reap of today is also a growing gathering of hotels, restaurants and attractions.
