Siem Reap River is a nice relaxing place to wander along – with overhanging trees that provide a welcome coolness.

You can sit on one of the stone bench watching the world go by next to Siem Reap River….or take a stroll and see the sculptured animals that sit among the grass and particularly lovely at night seeing the colored fairy lights upon the bridges.

Siem Reap River is located right across the road from Wat Preah Prohm Rath Temple  and is also a lovely way to spend an afternoon. It is close to Pub Street accessible by walking and there are fresh fruit juice vendors nearby for refreshments.

This is a great place to come to relax for an hour, soak up the vibe of Siem Reap and feel the calmness that this land has to offer.  Here you can have some down time or just to get away from the hustle and bustle…while connecting back to nature in unique and memorable way.
