Pub Street in Siem Reap
Pub Street is the most prosperous place in Siem Reap. The street is not long and is lined with bars, and at night every bar is filled with tourists from all over the world. Although it’s called Bar Street, it’s actually a restaurant street, but, these restaurants also serve alcoholic beverages.
This time to Siem Reap, our small hotel, very close to pub street, only a five-minute walk. The daily rate is about $40. Although the hotel is not big, but for this price, clean and comfortable is the most important.
Hotel Name: Apsara Centrepole Hotel.
Address: 522 Svay Dangkum, Old Market, Siem Reap.
In addition to the extremely convenient location, the other two benefits are the hotel’s free pick-up and free breakfast.
In the afternoon, we came to Pub Street. Here you must taste all kinds of fruit shakes, avocado shakes, dragon fruit shakes, and so on, all for $1 a cup. You can tell the vendor not to add sugar, because although it is delicious but later I found that sugar added too much, very unhealthy.
Every restaurant has no air conditioning, only a fan, and it doesn’t bring a hint of cool. We casually walked into a restaurant, and there were a few white girls sitting on the rattan chair under the sunshade outside.
The name of this restaurant: Paper Tiger Eatery.
This Deep Fried Lotus Roots with Meat Patties is very delicious.
In addition, there are two famous restaurants here, one is the Red Piano Restaurant, the other is Khmer Kitchen Restaurant. The Red Piano Restaurant is said to have been visited by Angelina Jolie.
Near the Pub Street, there is a local market that looks a bit messy, and most of the people who shuttle inside are dark-skinned locals.
Not far from the market is the Siem Reap River, the river is not wide, estimated to be five or six meters. There are plenty of mobile dining carts on the riverbank, and simple tables and chairs, and there are a variety of delicious cheap snacks. Locals and tourists like to enjoy two or three dollars of snacks at the riverside stalls, eating barbecues, drinking fruit shakes and watching people come and go.
In the evening we had dinner in the Khmer Kitchen Restaurant, we ordered the local AMOK, and it tasted sour, very delicious.
