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.

  • Nothing absolutely special. Souvenirs made in China, clothes made in China, food stands, bars, small eateries - but centrally located. Just off the main street. If you have time to burn and you are co...  more »
  • Live a dynamic place that is worth seeing, even if, going or returning from dinner. You will be surprised by the diversity, exotica, local folklore and amazing skills of sellers pulling you interact and trade. Prices start from zero:), but if a while poobserwujesz is easy to see how "happy" tourists, can be caught up in negotiations and buy something for a few tens of dollars it is not known why. The most interesting, that feel as if they were carrying and they won those negotiations. Look at the real artists, wyrabiającymi your eyes glass gem, paintings with sand or subtle leather cut-outs to hang instead of the image on the wall. Next you can eat freshly zgrillowanego snake, Scorpion or other exotic creature, of course, massages for $2:) or fish that "free" will do you a pedicure, you will find on every corner. This, of course, henna and probably only want. So as you are resistant, does not give up easily, you know that nothing is for free, and the occasional "Silver" for $5, it's not even a fairy tale, only a hoax, then this place is for you and you'll have a lot of fun during the short walk. If, however, you believe in the opportunity, are you imagination, do you like to buy pointless, then don't worry, at least further local small business and certainly zasłużysz, maybe not, but certainly fond memories and joy at local retailers. Well, maybe this lesson useful for the future:)

  • Good places for foreigner s to explore for massage, souvenirs and street foods, especially bugs. I would explore this place first before settle down for a drink or two at the pub street. Prices are not fixed and there for you to bargain. Most places sold almost the same things, so do not buy everything at first sight. Most sellers are capable of speaking and negotiating in several languages. This is quite impressive. Last but not least, there are both Cambodian and Western food restaurant in this area as well
  • The most lively place in town after dark. It's a treat for tourists as you can get souviniers, clothes, shoes, art work and almost every thing you would want to take back home in this market. As most of the tourist places and temples close in the evening ,this is a great way to utilize the time. The pub street has some great music and it goes on till early hours in the morning. The container pub street has also got a stage where the local bands perform. We had seen a performance by the band Small World Small band, and it was quite impressive.
  • This palce are first original night market in Siem Reap town also in Cambodia, that combined more then hundred of Khmer hand make products, restaurant, souvenir shop, massage and spa services. This palace also has been voted as top five things to do in Siem Reap town. If you love to shopping and support with local products this place is your place to be. The seller here are friendly they able to communication with many languages so easy to get what you want. If you need spa, fish or human massage services you can find with low price compared to other place along the road to market too. So you will get more experience with their products.
  • A good place to shop for souvenirs in the evening, especially after the market across the river has closed for the day. There are more stalls here set up by painters and artists, and you may be able to find something that you like here. We stumbled across a shop run by a sketch artist, who puts his prints on t shirts, mugs and even postcards, where part of the sales proceeds go to an orphanage as well. There are restaurants and massage places at the rear, and the usual souvenir, clothing and jewellery shops towards the front. Do please bargain, and do not accept the first price quoted. But also, to be fair tomthe locals, do not try to drive the prices way too low.
  • Angkor Night Market is really a nice place. A lot of stuff can be found for a cheap price. There are a lot of foreign tourists around the area. Caution: Beware of pickpockets, they make a living out of it.

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.
