Old French Quarter – Where to stay in Siem Reap for first timers

The heart of Siem Reap is the Old French Quarter, the best area for tourists visiting Siem Reap for the first time. The central location means you can easily reach the best areas of Siem Reap for nightlife, shopping, and dining. The French Quarter also has a wide range of Siem Reap accommodation including backpacker hostels and five-star hotels. Attractions in this neighborhood include the Royal Residence and the Angkor National Museum.

The French Quarter is well-connected to other areas of Siem Reap, and an inexpensive tuk-tuk ride will take you almost anywhere in the city. If you are joining any Siem Reap tours, they often leave from the center of the city. While you’re here, don’t miss Kandal Village, an up and coming area just south of the French Quarter that is filled with unique shops and boutiques.
