Angkor Wat is famous all over the world, but to taste Siem Reap, it needs to start from the Angkor night market. Strolling in Siem Reap Street, pure traditional Cambodian style, free and leisure Western style life, become one of the most popular places in the city at night.
A bit like in Thailand, there are many merchants, especially push carts selling fruit, street shops have a lot of paintings, smiling faces are the most important theme. There are also a lot of massage shops, the lighting is generally weak.
Eat, drink and play all have, a bit like Thailand. Pub rubbing shoulders, fruit stalls next to each other, all give their car decorated very delicate, massage and other leisure, there are a lot of crafts.
There was lots to choose from and the prices were reasonable. We did find some of the sellers a bit pushy though, but we were there in the off season and I suspect some were desperate for a sale (which made negotiating easier).
While it’s tempting to spend each night in Siem Reap noshing in a different restaurant – Mexican, Cambodian, or Japanese – you’re doing yourself a profound disservice if you don’t make some time to visit the city’s amazing night markets as well. The Khmer barbeque restaurants in particular are outstanding (and cheap!) and make what is possibly the world’s best banana shake.
The shopping experience here was great! Loads of choices for me. I'm picky.
Rithy Rine Angkor Residence is a best hotel in Siem Reap Cambodia!
The night market is the best place to absorb everything Siem Reap has to offer! There are many western food restaurants in Siem Reap that might be tempting, but come visit the night market for the feast. With a bottle of cold beer, it will be the best thing you do in Siem Reap!
