    This is a must see artisan market centrally located in Oum Kuhn St. I purchased a stunning handmade scarf and silk beads, jewellery from Claycult, original art from Channa, children’s toys, pepper selection, sandstone bracelets and cards. Buying from the artist or creator is so rewarding and they all appreciate your visit.

    Old market Siem Reap is one of the busy area and one can buy different items during day time. Fruits, T shirts, second hand items,etc are available. We have to bargain for the price.

    Beautiful tributes to the people lost during the Khmer Rouge reign. Artwork goes into detail for the treatment received and torture devices. Monks live there but at times didn’t appreciate us looking around. Recommend visiting if you have some free time.

    Mind boggling lay large with a wide variety of produce at, I guess, reasonable prices. But from the moment you enter and until you leave you are accosted by desperate sounding retailers. I understand their situation but it doesn’t encourage one to hang about

    Night market is just that. There are two areas for shopping. One side of it is open during the day and night market is on the other side of the river. They all pretty much sell the same stuff. I was hoping that some people would have unique things but no.
    I actually think the souvenir shops by the temples have better bargaining deals. Some of the shops out there dont get a lot of shoppers and so they are more desperete to sell

    Wat Bo is North East from the Old Market, across the river. It is a bit dusty (as are most of the Monastery's in Siem Reap). GPS 13,21' 23.29631 103 51'41.0191 There were two or three main tourist highlights very worth browsing. The first is that this monastery has an area where temple reliefs, Buddha statues and ornaments are made (or practised to be made). You can watch wooden statues being carved or see plaster templates of architraves and columns. A second attraction is the "Path of Buddhas" - a long outside corridor of Buddha statues. A third is the cemetery area. Another area worth looking at was the Temple building - which at the time was being renovated - but care must be taken as the floor tiles can be easily cracked. Too, there are toilets available. Remember, as usual, that entering any buildings means shoes and hats off.

    This is a must visit destination if you travel to Siem Reap. Suggest you get a tuk tuk from town (not too far away but you don't want to walk in the high heat and humidity) and have them wait for you while you explore as it's not a large place.

    The venue has a workshop and a gallery. A lady named Sina spoke perfect English and walked me through the workshop and the process they undergo, including the lacquerware and how they make some of the art pieces, including the one I eventually ordered.

    I fell in love with a particular piece with silver leaf lotus flowers but it was mounted on wood (ie high freight costs and custom issues) and didn't have fish. Sina indicated that they could custom make something for me, put it on canvas, and add koi that I wanted (rather than the catfish they usually have). I prepaid including freight cost, which was very reasonable given it was made to order. Sina also sent me a picture of different koi via Whatsapp for me to choose which ones I wanted.

    The canvas arrived professional packaged so it wouldn't be damaged in transit. I had it stretched and mounted on a floating frame (attached) at 176x93cm.

    I highly recommend this place and to take home (or order) a high quality piece of art work at a reasonable price and support the local community.

    It’s much more relaxed than the main city markets and in a nicer part of town. The shops help the locals find employment. It sells much better quality goods than the markets and nobody harasses you to buy anything. You can’t haggle over prices here.

    Like the art market as they had a lot of different souvenirs for sale. There is a man at the back that hand paints a lot of tshirts with angkor temples and other prints onto nice quality t shirts, he is worth a look. Some really beautiful art too. Several stalls with incredible pieces to look at.

    Visited it on 22 Dec 2019.

    We chanced upon this shopping mall while exploring the DFS and Grand Hotel d’ Angkor locality.

    The corridors before the shops were non-air conditioned just like Singapore’s Star Vista (next to Buona Vista MRT station) .

    Koi (Taiwan’s bubble tea), Swenson’s, Cafe Amazon, Tous Les Jours, Legend Cinema were some of the retailers we saw at this mall.

    There were some games for the kids at the atrium. It was a rather happening mall.

    We saw a 3D movie at Legend Cinema : “Jumanji The Next Level”. Good and comfortable seats. Needed to stand up for Cambodian National Anthem before the screening of the movie.

    Having lived in several South East Asian countries including some 3 years in "Khmerland", I was fortunate to visit both DIWO Galleries and meet the owner Ms. Sokha Chung. I found the courtesy extended to me by this lady to be exemplary to say the least. Her knowledge of the Khmer history and culture was superb. Most professional and ethical in her representations and dealings.. Of course, some of the items/merchandise - to some - maybe "pricey"... but good unique things are well worth buying. And if I were allowed I would have also "taken" the centrepiece ~ Ms. Sokha Chung ~ if she was available...unfortunately not so!

    The locals go here
    To swim and just take it lightly, the water is as it is but it is good to swim in
    You can lie in a hammock with a cold drink and do nothing at all for a couple of hours
