The Siem Reap night markets are well suited to relax after the heat of the day while strolling.
Unlike the days markets, night markets in Siem Reap are mainly frequented by tourists.
However, this should not deter you from visiting several of the bazaars. Even if you have no interest in buying souvenirs, night markets are worth seeing anyway.
Some bazaars offer a wide range of stalls and booths open their doors at sunset. There you will find traditional Cambodian crafts:clothing, silk, jewelry, paintings and other souvenirs are plentiful.
In between shopping , you can also get something to eat a at the night markets. We recommend the food at the typical food stalls.
