Made-in-Cambodia-Market-01B-730

Old Market (Phsar Chas)
Old market is very popular for tourists to wander around for shopping as well as there are chances to see locals exchange or trade their local productions such as vegetables, meats, grocery etc and there are a lot of stores selling antique furniture, statues, painting, handicraft, gorgeous T-Shirts and other various souvenirs. There are food stores you may want to try, serve different types of local food with reasonable prices.

Made in Cambodia Market (Open 12.00 – 22.00)
Made in Cambodia Market is absolutely worth your time. Aside from the colorful, original array of food, art, clothing, homewares, cosmetics, toys, jewellery and more, its chief defining characteristic is, as the name suggests, that everything sold here is made in Cambodia. This is in stark contrast to every other market in town, where the majority of the wares sold are generic junk made in China, Vietnam or Thailand. Those who visit Made In Cambodia have the opportunity to purchase artistically crafted products and luxury goods that redefine what it means to be made in Cambodia today. Each item for sale has been produced by a new generation of talented Cambodians. You are welcomed to enjoy an hour traditional dance performance (Free of charge) from 6-7pm every Saturday.

Artisan d’Angkor Wood & Stone Carving Centre
Artisans Angkor has developed from the ambitious belief that it is possible to revive ancient Khmer Arts & Crafts while improving the lives of thousands of people living in rural areas. Not only has Artisans Angkor become a company dedicated to the preservation of traditional Khmer skills in silk-making, stone and wood carving, lacquering and painting, but it is also an organization committed to promote the development of individuals and secure their future by the means of education and welfare. Today, Artisans Angkor is proud to show that Cambodian handicraft is still alive and more creative than ever.

Angkor Night Market
Was the first night market in Siem Reap, provides great stroll in the evening until late at night, where you can bargain and shopping for your favorite souvenirs. There are a lot of souvenir stores selling various local handicrafts, stylish clothes, caps, hats, colorful handbags and so on. At there, you can also find fish massage or general head & foot massage and small bar serving local beer, shakes and other spirits. It is a nice place for tourists to experience and see nightlife.

Street Alley West
Alley west is the suitable street for those who are looking for gorgeous, boutique stores where there are with plenty of various good quality of artifacts, Buddha statues, beautiful well-designed clothes, silk products including bags, crafts & clothes, paintings as well as art galleries.

Puok Silk Farm
If you look for silk products, Puok Silk Farm is highly recommended, displays and sells various traditional silk products and you also have chance to visit their workshop, worm farm and observe the silk process. You may find why prices are higher than the ones at old market or at any stores, don’t worry; the money you spent is quite suitable from what you bought.

Supermarkets
While Siem Reap gets booming yearly, you will easily find some supermarkets around Siem Reap but we recommend a few of them which save your time on looking your favorite items; Angkor Market has most of things you need especially goods from Europe, Angkor Lucky Mall & Asian Supermarket; these two are the next recommendation if you don’t seek unique/rare goods made in Europe but you frequently find things you need at both places.
