Old Market

Siem Reap Old Market is one of the first Siem Reap attractions one should visit to find souvenirs and traditional Khmer goods. It's set in a great location right in the heart of town, and is the main shopping spot for locals and tourists alike, and also the hub of Siem Reap activity.

It's a bustling market which draws many tourists simply to come and take a wander through the interesting food or otherwise find some great traditional Cambodian wares in the way of clothing, souvenirs, hand carved ornaments or stone furniture. In the morning the locals will rush around the corridors with produce for the day - the earlier you get there the fresher the food will be.
Around the old market there are many cafes, bars and restaurants to rest your tired feet after wondering through the narrow corridors and bargaining with stubborn sellers!

Travel Advisory:
Pick – pocket is rather bad at markets, night markets or on the streets. So please keep your hand bag, camera, valuable belongings carefully. Please keep your bag in front.
