  • It's a nice place with very beautiful objects, the prices are varied. You are welcomed and guided without pressure to buy and yet you crack.

  • Very nice house and interesting collection of high quality... the quality justifies the price... but it's still a bit expensive even for a European. A visit to the charm of the place.

  • Hard to find... but what enchantment! A beautiful traditional house in a beautiful garden, collections of Buddhas, of musical instruments, kitchen... worthy of a Museum, beautifully presented, the works of the artist in paintings, often lacquered, traditional or very contemporary sculptures of inspiration. And workshops of reproduction by a Cambodian. Very staggered price, free guided tour. Not to be missed!

  • A rich of art and nice decorated location, a bit far from center. With attention you can find a lot of details here.
  • This is the residence of the artist. He turned the house to a very nice as attractive place to showcase abs display of Khmer art/ culture/ painting/ past khmer traditional living culture. You should have a tour.
  • Artists residence, studio, workshop, gallery, shop, museum... Cambodian artist Lim Muy Theam has converted his home into an impressive tropical haven to house his creative visions. You shouldn't miss this!

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.
