Our Prince Hotel is about 700 meters away from the old market (night market). When we go to Siem Reap, we naturally have to spend half a day visiting the old market. There are the most concentrated bars and vendors in the city. Overnight, people who have spent the whole day gather here to eat, drink and enjoy massage. It is the most lively area in the city. Here you can buy a variety of handicraft products, tourist souvenirs and local specialties, including wood carvings, clay sculptures imitating Angkor architecture, scarves, shawls, incense and so on. The prices of things here are relatively high, and the bargaining price is half-cut. Here you can also see the artist sitting on the street performing with various colors of sand into small bottles of sand painting crafts.
The shops here in the night market are very nice, and so are the roadside stalls. I mainly buy things from those aunts and uncles with good smiles. The local children are also very interesting. Night market prices can be more or less successful bargaining, prices are much higher, try to walk inside, those shops better speech.
When Angkor Night Market is free, it is also a kind of recreation, mainly some clothes and local specialties. It is no different from most small commodity markets in China, and it has a very familiar feeling. The price of things is different, so we must have the heart to bargain.
Angkor Night Market, very busy, we see a so-called tourist information center, but feel all kinds of strange, feel not regular, more like a Shanzhai Tourist Information Center entrance with foreigners doing sand sculptures, there are many people around, let's see.
Down the Bakan Mountains, it's still early. We asked our tour guide and driver to take us to the night market in the center of Siem Reap. We planned to have dinner in the center of Siem Reap. Then we looked at the famous bar street in Siem Reap. Siem Reap's downtown is not big. Old markets, night markets and bar streets are linked together and can be visited once. The evening was so lively that it felt like people from all over the world were gathered here. Restaurants, bars, shops and foot massage shops are everywhere. There are also small shops selling fried spiders and fried cockroaches on the roadside. Many tourists gather around these shops in a novel way. Few people dare to try, but there's no need to worry that the vendors won't make money, because if you want to take pictures of these fried insects, you have to pay. We wandered all the way, and finally saw a restaurant with distinctive decoration and decided to eat here.
