Old Market in Siem Reap

On the first day in Siem Reap, we did not go directly to Angkor Wat, because everyone was very tired, so we arranged a more leisure trip. In the morning we were going to visit the famous old market here first, and then in the afternoon to buy tickets to Angkor Wat.

The hotel we were staying in was not far from the old market, so we didn’t rent a car on the first day, but called a tuk-tuk for a little more expensive. When we got to the old market, we didn’t believe at first that it was the most famous shopping market in the area, and it looked like a farmers’ market.

There were so many slippers sold here, I don’t know if the slippers here are more famous, I haven’t heard of it before.

There are a lot of people with silk scarves here, and Cambodian silk is said to be good.

Tourists on the streets of Siem Reap.

This is a strange place seen in the local, can you guess it is a gas station?

This massage shop is the most cost-effective for pedicures, $1.50 an hour, and $4 an hour for the neck and shoulder.

Freshly squeezed juices or fruit shakes on the side of the road must be tasted, for as little as $1! It’s best to tell the stallholder not to add anything, or they’ll add a kind of local sugar that tastes a little strange.

Cambodia’s unique Angkor Beer tastes really good, you can buy 2 cans for $1 in a small street shop, but when you get to a restaurant it can be two or three dollars a can. Please note that if you want to add ice, you will be asked to pay an additional $0.50.

This is a primary school nearby.

Although the conditions were not very good, but the children were smiling happily.

In the evening, we found the nearby Khmer Kitchen Restaurant, which was in a nice setting. We ordered a few dishes, the taste was very general, an average of 7 dollars a dish.
