Siem Reap Old Market

Fresh Food Isle

The Siem Reap Old Market is a place where the traveler can find original Cambodian products. The food market is worth the trip because of the varied foods such as very fresh fish, vegetable, poultry, and about anything you can think of.

Siem Reap is a small city but it’s best known for being a big tourism location. The Angkor Wat Temples are a big draw. The Siem Reap Old Market sells handmade items such jewelry. Cambodians also sell the food they grow, name brand but knock off designer clothes, jewelry, silks and hundreds of other tourism related products. This Old Market is not known by locals for being the best place in town to shop, but the tourists love this unique place. Be expected to negotiate for the best price when you find something you like. They often ask much more than what they will settle for.
