Siem Reap and The Angkor Wat Temple

Siem Reap is a province of Cambodia, located on the northwestern part of the country, on the shores of the Tonle Sap Lake.

Being the provincial capital, Siem Reap literally means the victory of the Khmer Empire over the army of the Thai kingdom of Ayutthaya in the 17th Century.

Today however, the region is most widely known for being the closest city to the popular tourist hot spot, the ruins of the temples of Angkor with The Angkor Wat (the capital temple) being the most recognizable.
