Vietnam is developing at an astonishing pace and is a nation going places fast. The country is rich in culture and history coming together from diverse influences that have presided over the country and its people for thousands of years.
Vietnam is renowned worldwide for its magnificent natural beauty, friendly and inquisitive people and its delicious food, as well as its emerald-green mountains, ravishing coastline, breathtaking national parks and dynamic cities such as Ho Chi Minh City in the south and its capital Hanoi in the north. Vietnam is a treasure trove of memories. Its geography, man-made monuments and structures are supplemented by the positive attitude of the Vietnamese people themselves, creating an inspiring and captivating atmosphere for visitors and a holiday never to be forgotten.
Cambodia is situated on the Indochinese peninsula and is bordered by Thailand and Laos on the north and Vietnam on the east and south.
Siem Reap province is located in northwest Cambodia. It is the major tourist hub in Cambodia, as it is the closest city to the world famous temples of Angkor (the Angkor temple complex is north of the city). The provincial capital is also called Siem Reap and is located in the South of the province on the shores of the Tonle Sap Lake, the greatest sweet water reserve in whole Southeast Asia. The name of the city literally means 'Siamese defeated', referring to the victory of the Khmer Empire over the army of the Thai kingdom in the 17th century.
The proximity of the Angkorian ruins turned Siem Reap into a boomtown in less than half a decade. Huge, expensive hotels have sprung up everywhere and budget hotels have mushroomed. Though some of the town's previous ramshackle charm may have been lost in all the development, the last few years have brought livelihoods, if not significant wealth, to a good number of its citizens. If Cambodia is a country of contrasts, Siem Reap is the embodiment of those contrasts. Despite the massive shift in its economic fortunes, Siem Reap remains a safe, friendly and pleasant town. There is an endless choice of places to stay or dine and a host of possible activities awaiting the visitor.
