Angkor Night Market, Siem Reap

3.4
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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Siem Reap vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Like everything else in Asia, shopping here is one of the tourist spots. The local clothes, which are quite light due to heat are sold everywhere, and are very cheap. In addition to souvenirs, bags, accessories and the like. It's worth a walk by there and then go eat at the pub street, next door.

  • Dozens of shops selling all exactly the same items at the same price. Haggling of rigour if course you are interested the inevitable t-shirt memories and other trinkets...

  • 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.
