This kind of street scene plays out all over Southeast Asia. The tangle of electrical wires above ground, as different people tap into the grid both legally and illegally. In this case, things actually look pretty organized compared to some other cases.
You get that mix of cars, motorcycles, hand carts, auto rickshaws and people all jockeying for space on the road. Luckily, it's not as congested as it could be (*ahem*, India). The center of Siem Reap seemed almost like one long road of hotels and restaurants. Or at least, the touristic area was largely that.
