Cambodia is bordered by Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
Siem Reap is in the north west of the country, 196 miles (315 km) north of the modern capital, Phnom Penh.
Belmond La Résidence d'Angkor is situated on the riverside in central Siem Reap, gateway to the majestic temples of Angkor. The hotel is just moments away from the bustling markets of Siem Reap and 10 minutes from Angkor Wat, the most famous of Cambodia's Khmer civilisation temples.
The hotel is a 20-minute drive from Siem Reap airport, which is only a one-hour flight from Bangkok.
For those wishing for a more scenic arrival, a boat trip is available from Phnom Penh. You'll travel up the Mekong River and through the beautiful Tonle Sap Lake, arriving in Siem Reap three days later.
