Introduction

The most convenient gateway to the much coveted Angkor Archaeological Park is Siem Reap in Northern Cambodia. Siem Reap, which translates to ‘defeated dragon’, is the capital city of the synonymous district. This ancient site has been the bone of contention for numerous power hungry ruling sides. It has been captured and ruled by many rulers, ranging from Cambodians to Thais, and from Vietnamese to the French.Siem Reap was little more than a village when French explorers "re-discovered" Angkor in the 19th century. With the acquisition of Angkor by the French in 1907 following a Franco- Siamese treaty, Siem Reap began to grow.
