It's my first visit to Siem Reap, gateway to the Angkor Ruins in 5 years and I've got an update for you on what's changed. The current state of outside investment and growth is certainly reflective in the amount of new retail shops, particularly internationally branded stores, chains like Starbucks, and new locations of familiar Cambodian brands. I was shocked by how much more agressive drivers and touts are throughout the tourist district or center of the town. Fortunately if Pub Street and a backpacker atmosphere is not for you there are still plenty of family owned restaurants and quieter less rambunctious places away from the center, particularily around Wat Damnak. I'm looking forward to sharing more experiences and insights along with tips during my lengthy stay in Siem Reap. You can support the Far East Travels Podcast by becoming a patron!
