Why Trang Village is the best area to stay in Siem Reap
Trang Village is by far one of the better areas to stay in Siem Reap. Situated along Siem Reap river about 1.8km from the Old Market and 7km from the famous Angkor Wat and the Temples of Angkor.
If you are looking for a quite area within Siem Reap; and lets not forget Siem Reap is Cambodia's 2nd largest city, then Trang Village is for you! Trang Village is a up-and-coming area and with the opening up of a new 5 star hotel Jaya House along the riverside a lot has been done to improve the area. Jaya House River Park along with other local business have planted a number of trees running from the Pagoda to River Village Manor Guesthouse, it's truly turning into Siem Reap's best kept secret. Trang Village is only a 15 minute walk into the busy tourist area and Old Market with plenty to see along the way or if you don't fancy walking then you are more than welcome to borrow one of our bicycles if you are staying at River Village Manor or grab a Tuktuk between $2-$3.
There are also a number of good restaurants in the Trang Village area. We serve freshly prepared food most days with meals starting from $4 and we have a small menu with some of our favourite Cambodia dishes and a few western dishes.
Or if you fancied venturing out then there is....................

L’Oasi which is a great Italian restaurant down the road from River Village Manor. The main focus stands on the freshness of its ingredients. Quite uniquely in Siem Reap, all pasta, bread and pizza are made by hand in the kitchen.
