Cambodia is bordered by Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
Siem Reap is located in the north west of the country, 196 miles (315 km) north of the modern capital, Phnom Penh.
Belmond La Résidence d'Angkor, one of the best hotels in Siem Reap, enjoys a lush riverside setting. Guests are just moments away from the town’s bustling markets and colourful nightlife.
The hotel is a short distance from the fascinating Khmer complex of temples, and 10 minutes from the famous Angkor Wat site. It is also perfectly positioned to explore the unique life on Tonlé Sap Lake.
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.
