With a wide variety of local handicrafts and souvenirs, as well as delicious street food and drinks, Siem Reap’s night markets are a shopper’s paradise. Unfortunately, due to the Covid pandemic and lack of tourists in town, several popular night markets closed during recent years, amongst which Angkor Night Market, commonly known as the Original Night Market. Established in 2007, this was the first night market to open in Siem Reap and even the whole of Cambodia. Despite this setback, Siem Reap’s Souvenir & Night Markets remain an important part of the town’s culture and economy, and we hope that they will continue to thrive in the future.
