Similar to the capital Phnom Penh, properties in Siam Reap are split into several categories including traditional style Cambodian shophouses. There is a broad selection of budget-friendly guesthouses in Siam Reap providing reduced rates subject to rent for at least four weeks. Condos or one-bedroom apartments are usually fully furnished and located in brand new or refurbished blocks.
Easy to maintain and rent out, they feature extensive facilities such as swimming pools, gyms and round the clock security. Although rental yields are small, condos are extremely sought after thanks to increased levels of tourism and foreign investment. A prime example is this stylish 11 bed, 11 bathroom apartment in Pouk. Other noticeable property areas include Sla Kram, Sala Kanraeuk and Svay Dankum.
Some of the hottest areas in Siam Reap are situated around the iconic Angkor temples, providing a gateway to exploring this exciting destination.
