West Riverside

About a five-minute tuk tuk ride into town, this is an interesting little area of Siem Reap. The road goes up along the river past Raffles Hotel, covered with a thick canopy of trees and lined with shop stalls and local markets. The temperature drops significantly around here, thanks to the cover of the trees, making it a really pleasant place to be. This area is beginning to pick up.

Old market

While a handful of budget lodgings are around here — some of which are very good — the Old Market area is more of a shopping, feasting and drinking zone than anything else. You can choose to stay in the heart of the area around the market, or across Sivatha Road there's a bunch of budget guesthouses.

The French quarter

Between Sivatha Road and the Siem Reap River lie some excellent mid- to upper-range options to choose from, including some of Siem Reap's most fabulous hotels. On the western side of Sivatha Rd though you're back to backpacker and flashpacker lodgings — none of which are the pick of the bunch in town.

Wat Bo

The backpacker heartland — loads of good budget guesthouses along with some exceptional midrange resorts. While the old market area is a 10- to 15-minute walk away, it is a pleasant riverside stroll.

Away from town

A few hotels are scattered further afield, particularly on the road to Angkor, but what you gain in proximity to the ruins, you lose in distance from Siem Reap town and its rich selection of eateries and other distractions.
