Night Markets (SR)
Sundown shopping Unlike neighbours Thailand, Vietnam, and even Laos – as well as many other countries in the region – Cambodia did not have any after-hours trading centres to offer shopaholics a nocturnal fix until early 2007. The scene changed with the opening of the Angkor Night Market in Siem Reap. Ten years on, and you can still peruse more than 200 Khmer-style huts built from natural materials and stocked with traditional Cambodian handmade products, including clothing, silks, art, jewelry, wood and stone carvings and other handicrafts – often produced by orphans and handicapped people who are allocated stalls at a discounted price. Opposite the original night market is Noon Night Market, boasting around 100 stalls selling handicrafts and souvenirs from 12 noon til 12 midnight. Over on the east bank of the Siem Reap River, opposite the Old Market, you’ll find Siem Reap Art Center Market, with its range of clothing, accessories, silk products, handicrafts and artwork, toys, and decorations. Traditional Apsara dance is performed nightly from 8pm. The market is open daily from 8am-10pm, but be aware many stalls tend to close around 5pm. A little further up the river and inside the King’s Road Angkor complex, the […]

Destinations from Phnom Penh. Why not get going?
Going out & about There is much more to see in Cambodia than the temples of Angkor and the capital city of Phnom Penh; the Kingdom’s offering of exciting destinations is rich and plentiful. There are the beaches at Sihanoukville, Irrawaddy dolphins in Kratie, the hill tribe areas of Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri just to name a few, and they’re all easy to get to with a little forward planning. The roads have mostly been improved and there are now more areas covered by regular bus services. The route between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh has the most options with buses leaving hourly from 6:30am-2:30pm – the Giant Ibis bus with Wi-Fi on board and lots of leg space has proven to be very popular. There are now a few companies providing a faster service by minivan that carry fewer passengers. Capitol and Sorya also have coaches to Battambang, Kratie, Kampot/Kep, Sihanoukville, Ratanakiri and all the towns in between. Taxis are a popular choice, especially if you’re in a small group, and allow you to shave a bit of time off and stop at places along the way. A one-way journey to Phnom Penh will cost you from $65 upwards, depending […]
