Old market

In the Old Market area of Siem Reap you can find almost anything. One of the things that stands out are its craft stalls and souvenir stalls that compete with faux shirts and other garments. For those ve are discovering Southeast Asia we often find it difficult to distinguish crafts from different countries as they are often quite similar except for certain details. Despite this, in countries like Thailand, you can find Buddha figures carved out of wood, images of the spectacular temples of Angkor, clothes with bright colors and bright, lucky charms, fabrics, paintings, etc . The Old Market area is not too bright at night except for the area of ​​pubs and restaurants where the neon lights are so bright. Although it is appreciated that in this city mosquitoes make an appearance and it is so hot at night that it still seems like it's daytime. A walk through these stalls will be fairly quiet and remember that in this country you pay with dollars or riels that is its official currency. (1 dollar = 5000 riels approx.) You can imagine that it is quite cheap to buy here compared to most tourist places like temples, etc where prices rise enough.

Central market in siem reap

One of the most enjoyable experiences in any Asian city is to visit the markets. The Psar Chaa, the central market of Siem Reap, is in the city center surrounded by food stalls, restaurants, small hotels, tuc-tucs ... In the market you can find everything: stone carvings, wood, silk, clothing, jewelry, all kinds of crafts ... Part of the market sells food (meat, fish, vegetables, spices .. ) where local restaurants buy raw materials for their kitchens. Ah! It essential to haggle!

It is in an area with lots of restaurants and city entertainment, do not miss it, there are many "taxis" (mopeds with a trailer) to get you back to your hotel. Both Sivatha Road and Hospital Street lead to the river Siem Reap. It is a market where there are two clearly defined areas: the main area and the larger one where you can have a meal, for me it's the most interesting, but with the heat there is a smell ... that we Westerners can not stand very well. It is the most touristy area where you can find all types of objects, sculptures, copies of watches, wraps etc. Well all kinds of crafts. You have to bargain fairly.
