My wife an I have now been in Siem Reap for two weeks, find locals extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in hotels initially, which we found reasonable priced by the way,but have now rented an one bedroomed apartment at a very good rate in the Ro's Residence D'Angkor a new apartment complex with a pool and only ten minute Took Took ride from town centre (pub street and night market) we can also see Angkor ruins from the roof of our complex. We have visited the ruins and found them to be both amazingly beautiful and intriguingly different from site to site, we have admittedly only been to four sites. We have yet to find employment, my wife has dropped of CVs at schools and preschools. I on the other hand will be trying to get a position as an events manager in hospitality field but also looking into English teaching positions.
