Angkor Night Market, Siem Reap

3.4
#2 of 63 in Shopping in Siem Reap
Some 200 bamboo huts open around sunset to sell a variety of souvenirs, handicrafts, and textiles at Angkor Night Market, taking advantage of the cooler temperatures and nightlife in the Siem Reap neighborhood. The spot combines shopping for local goods with parties, bars, and foot spa or massage treatments. An internationally sponsored, non-profit initiative aimed at boosting Khmer handicrafts against Chinese mass-production, the market occupies a niche targeting tourists. Prepare for a hard bargain as you browse through locally woven silk paintings and puppets made of Chinese silk yam, or examine stone carvings displaying national motifs. The night market lies just a few blocks away from the Old Market, off Sivatha Boulevard. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Siem Reap holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Angkor Night Market and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Angkor Night Market as the name suggests only opens at night. It is the place to look for souvenirs to bring home. The market is open air. As usual, haggle when buying anything. There are numerous foo...  more »

    Go absolutely! It is a must to see in siem reap... as soon as day and everything is illuminated it is magical. A lot of people, odors, several small shops of souvenirs of all kinds. Don't hesitate to bargain politely. We deal in US dollars but pay in Cambodian riels... small session of doctor fish!

    I'm enjoying the party like atmosphere and massage. There are great choices of cross culture foods, drinks, pubs, souvenir shops, restaurants, and clubs. U can observe so much about Khmer culture through modern night lives. Economically, the gap between rich and poor is noticably huge and that's the highlight.

    Really nice to stroll around in the evening. Quite a few bars around and interesting stalls. Same stuff on sale as any market along with aggressive sales people but to be expected

    This was a fun little market. The shop owners expect you to bargain and I'd definitely recommend doing it otherwise what they tell you is way over priced. It's mostly the same things at all the stores but fun to walk around

    Angkor Night Market is the best place to shop and dine in Siem Reap. They have wide array of amazing souvenirs and items plus a great selection of food and beers. Generally, they accept US Dollars so it is best to have your money in this currency. Majority of the products sold here are cheap depending on your skills to ask for lower prices from the seller.

    The reviews here are harsh. The night market is a part of local culture and well worth a visit. There are plenty of massage parlours (including Dr Fish), food stalls and elephant pants vendors for all your cliché backpacking needs. The night market is a short walk from Siem Reap if you are staying in the backpacker area otherwise a few dollars on a tuktuk will get you there and back.

Where to stay in Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers attractive accommodations on every budget. Inexpensive family-run guesthouses provide clean, private rooms with access to the host's wealth of information. Hostels catering to backpackers cluster around the old market squares. Four- and five-star resorts welcome guests to retreat from the city into sleek modern interiors or rustic village havens, while mid-range hotels with sparkling pools fill in the spectrum. All can be booked online in advance, but with the abundant options at hand you shouldn't have much trouble finding a room upon arrival.
