In ‘normal’ years, the northwest of Cambodia attracts millions of tourists wanting to see the Angkor temples.
However, most go directly to the city and not witness the beauty of the surrounding province.
Siem Reap province is located about 300km northwest of Phnom Penh and covers a total area of around 10,300km2.
It borders Oddar Meanchey (north), Preah Vihear and Kampong Thom (east), Battambang (south) and Banteay Meanchey (west).
It borders the Tonle Sap (the largest fresh water lake in South East Asia) and Phnom Kulen, an isolated mountain and the highest point in the province, standing at 487m. Siem Reap city is the 5th largest urban centre in Cambodia after Takhmau, Battambang, Serei Saophoan and Phnom Penh.
The province has 12 districts, 100 communes and around 875 villages.
Most of the villages are located in Angkor Chum, Chi Kreng, Krolanh, Puk and Sot Nikum. Angkor Thom district is best known for Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom.
Many people also visit Banteay Srei to visit the famous namesake temple.
Most of the region is full of wet plains, particularly in the south near Tonle Sap.
In the wet season, rice fields and other plantations are well irrigated and the north covered in thick, green jungle.
The Mekong River is narrow as it passes through the province but is an important source of water for the region, flowing from Phnom Kulen to the lake.
