Best Shopping Siem Reap


The Old market has a huge range of traditional and modern items. Silkware, art and crafts, jewellery and clothing - and a great place to get breakfast with the locals in the morning. The best place for western clothing - Camel, Ralph Lauren and Columbia are here aplenty.

The Night market (and neighbouring noon-night market) are more specifically tourist-oriented, with a better range of higher-quality goods, perhaps, at the newer Noon-Night version.

The Alley West

Walk up the Alley (between the old market and Pub Street) over Sivatha, and a clutch of new shops have opened during 2010, including Smateria, Wanderlust, Spicey Green Mango, and Poetry all offer unique designs. Try the sangria at Picasso, or a pizza and a glass of wine at Samot, or relax at the Art Deli between browsing.

  • Charles de Gaulle Road (along river near town), - Several workshops selling a whole array of furniture, basketware and carvings.
  • Artisans d'Angkor - has a range of traditional craftware at top-end prices.
  • IKTT - a few hundred metres downstream of the old market, along the river, this sells extremely high quality hand-woven textiles (cotton and silk).
  • MacDermott Gallery - at FCC or the Alley, sells photographic prints from this iconic photographer
