    Cambodian art is traditional in all cities and shops for tourists. This gallery is a new and modern art vision. The artists have interpreted very cleverly tradition through a modernist vision of the statues and traditional items. This type of art is perfect for a layout, a modern apartment decoration. It's new and different; See and buy if you are European;

    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!

    I love everything in this house! I enjoyed our last day in Siem Reap at Theam's House. It summarized the kingdom of Cambodia. He gathered all of his collection of arts, religion, history, représentation, artistic, and lifestyle and more at his house. They also sell some items like silk, decoration, frames, religion figures and a lot more. It's like a one stop museum plus shopping. We also enjoyed their talking bird in Khmer. Had fun with him. Hope you also visit them, it's worth spending of time in Siem Reap.

    Nice handicraft workshop. Visitors are welcome to see the handicraft making. If you like it you can buy direct from the workshop. They also sell handicraft at many stores and hotels in Siem Reap town.

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.

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.
