Some of bars are generally closed until 4.00am in the early morning while night market stores and restaurants are closed until mid-night. As you’re walking neat the pub street, you can hear loud disco music, see street cocktail carts with reasonable prices for all choices of the cocktails and street food is also nice that you may want to try. Old market and Angkor night market are good choices for shopping, prices are fairly ok but don’t forget to bargain to get a better price. Remember that there are a lot of night markets around town.
