  • Shopping with a difference: the social difference. Their products are very well finished and they have a rest sense of style for all decorations. Indigo dyed products were my favourites but don't miss those items with materials from ethnic tribes from the north of the Mekong delta. This business promotes women empowerment by giving them the opportunity of employment that otherwise wouldn't happen. I love the philosophy behind it as well as their end products.

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.
