Central Market, Siem Reap

3.0
#23 of 61 in Shopping in Siem Reap
Filled with sights, sounds, and aromas, the vibrant and authentic Central Market serves as a great place to pick up a souvenir or sample some local food. Peruse a market packed with meat, fish, and vegetables, along with crafts, antiques, DVDs, and clothing. If you like bargain-hunting and testing your haggling skills, you'll find the local vendors more than willing to negotiate on price. Make sure you explore the surrounding area, also filled with shops and traditional restaurants. Plan my trip to Siem Reap with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

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.
