    Old Market's (Phsar Chas): Old Market's (Phsar Chas)

    by Cathy&Gary Updated Mar 31, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Old Market and surrounding area are a definite must see when visiting Siem Reap. It is very popular with locals and tourists, plus you will find the biggest selection of souvenirs here.

    Around the markets there are many little exclusive shops, massage places, bars and galleries. These are the places to buy your higher quality products.

    The south side of the Old Market has many vendors selling silk, souvenirs, Cambodian handicrafts, materials and statues etc.

    The Old Market is also where you will find post cards, dvd's, books, t shirts post cards, tee-shirts and other small items if you haven't already bought them from the vendors at the temples.

    The north half of the market mainly caters to the locals, selling fruit,vegetables, meats, clothes, appliances, hardware etc. There are also lots of cheap food stalls in this area.

    The Old Market closes at sunset, but many of the souvenir shops in the south section of the market stay open past 8pm.

    A lot of prices were similar to the markets in Phnom Penh where we did a lot more shopping.

    Angkor Complex Souvenir Shops: Souvenir Shops at Angkor Complex

    by machomikemd Written Jun 24, 2012

    THIS IS THE MAIN DESTINATION when going to Siem Reap, this is the reason while many tourists go to Siem Reap. To Visit the Assorted Pagodas, Temples and Shrines at the Huge Angkor Complex and THIS IS THE REASON while there is an army of souvenir shops dotting the huge angkor complex. You will find these souvenir shops and mini food stalls everywhere in the angkor complex, moreso at the main areas plus there are also ambulatory vendors (an army of them and very persistent too) the sells all kinds of stuffs, ranging from pirated angkor wat guide books, ladies bags, local scarfs called "krama", snake wines, bottled water, fruit juices and other things that you can think of!

    most of the stalls open at 6:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday

    ambulant vendors also start coming at 6:00 am and stay longer.

    What to buy: like what i've said, all the touristy items are being sold here plus bottled water, fruit juices, soft drinks, food stalls and a lot more.

    What to pay: ambulant vendors are the easy ones to haggle since they don't pay rent to the government for the stalls so you can knock of 100% or more from the prices of their goods. lower haggling prices at the stalls , less then 100% off the price of the merchandise.

    Chnong Keas Souvenir Shops: Souvenir Shops at Chnong Keas Tonle Sap

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 24, 2012

    like in other major tourism areas, Chnong Keas floating village and the nearby Kompong Pluk Floating village and the boat terminal of the Tonle Sap Tours has a many souvenir shops but they are not as numerous as the assorted souvenir shops located all around the Huge Angkor Complex and in Siem Reap, the novelty of the souvenir shops here is that they are floating in water but they virtually have the same prices and the same kinds of merchandise as the ones in Siem Reap and Angkor Complex so Haggling is a must when buying items here.

    Opens: 8:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: any souvenir item that you want like refrigerator magnets, shot glasses, key chains, Angkor Wat books, maps, wooden carvings, laterite carvings, ladies bags, crocodile leather goods (they grow crocodiles here hence they have many crocodile leather products), snake wine and more

    What to pay: more expensive if you don't haggle!

    try to knock off at least 100% of the price as they tend to jack up the price up to 200% of the items!

    Lucky Plaza Mall: Only The Second Shopping Mall in Siem Reap

    by machomikemd Written Jun 22, 2012

    This will be my Lucky Plaza Mall Shopping Tips.

    Lucky Plaza Mall is a relatively new Mini Shopping mall (why do i call it mini? since it is only a three story mall and the total area is quite small by south east asian standards like in singapore or thailand or philippines where they have HUGE Shopping Malls!). They say that this mall opened just in december of 2008 and that the second and third floors of the mall still have many unopened spaces for tenants.

    THIS is the second Shopping Mall in Siem Reap as of today (The Older and First Mall is the Angkor Trade Center but i did not went there) and this mall is owned by the Lucky Group of Stores, which is a Cambodian Owned Company based in Phnom Penh but has branches around Cambodia. It sports decent grocery store on the ground floor, clothes store and fast food restaurant on the second floor and an electronic store on the top floor. They also have their owned Lucky Burger, Luck Cafe at the Second Floor and Lucky Supermarket and Luck Gelato (which we tried, will do a separate tip for it). The area is frequented by locals and by some tourists too.

    It is located just 100 meters from our hotel in Prince D' Angkor Hotel.
    opens: 8:00 am to 8:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: typical shopping mall items like women's wear and men's wear at the Bambou Boutique, Assorted Grocery Items at the Supermarket, Coffee and Latte and Capucino at the Luck Cafe in the Second Floor, Gelato at the Luck Gelato Store at the Ground Floor, Burgers and Fries at the Luck Burger at the Second Floor. They hardly have tenants at the second and third floors of the mall.

    What to pay: definitely cheaper than the markets or the convenience stores if you buy your essntials here like bottle water, fruit juices, personal care products and more. No Haggling here since all are fixed price but again they don't jack up prices for tourists!

    Shops along Pub Street Alleys: Pub Street Alleys

    by machomikemd Written Jun 21, 2012

    Pub Street is just one small street from end to end is just about 400 meters long but like a spider, with a web around it, it has many alleys and side streets that ends at Pub Street and there are many commercial establishments, stores, souvenir shops, hole in the wall, restaurants, bars and what have you lining the unnamed alleys lining the periphery of pub street. The alleys are narrow, pedestrian-only walkways that have a more relaxed ambiance compared to the lively Pub Street and some of the exits are just across the street from busy Old Market area since the Old Market and Pub Street are just a stone's throw away. The Alleys are coded into Alley West, The Passage (pub street alley) and The Lane.

    Most of the establishments are open from 10:00 am to 12:00 am but the action starts at 5:00 pm onwards.

    What to buy: assorted local items like silk bags, ties, shirts, other souvenir stuffs like wood carvings, stone carvings and more. Almost the same stuffs that you can find at the Old Market nearby but at higher prices since the rent here is higher.

    What to pay: much more than buying most of the same stuffs at the nearby old market area.

    assorted shops along the alleys of pub street pose rainy eating then buying stuffs menu then buy souvenirs later

    Buying at Street Vendors: Street Vendors

    by machomikemd Written Jun 20, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are the adventurous type, then you can buy some items at street or sidewalk vendors like bottled water, cigarettes, candies, lighters, Cambodian Street Food, snacks, juices and other kinds of knick knacks. these street or sidewalk vendors usually do not overcharge tourists unlike the vendors at the Markets. but be sure to have some cambodian riels handy since they hardly have US Dollars for change on items that you buy. They accept US dollars as payment for the items you bought from them but they will give you change in Cambodian Riel!

    What to buy: your everyday fare like cigarettes, cigars, candies, street food, softdrinks, bottled water, fruit juices both fresh and canned, liqours, beers and more.

    What to pay: the best bang for your Buck or Cambodian Riel

    Convenience Stores in Siem Reap: Convenience Stores in Siem Reap

    by machomikemd Written Jun 20, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    like is any country in the world, Cambodia has it's fair share of small stores and convenience stores (both 24 hour and the non 24 hour kind) but a contrast in the convenience stores here is the absence of famous international convenience store chains like 7-11, Mini Stop or Watsons. They have their own locally convenience stores, sometimes with catchy names like six-eleven hehehe. These convenience store provide you with creature comforts you need to stack up like personal hygiene products, fast micro waveable food, personal grooming products, fruit juices, bottled water, cigarettes, liqour and anything in between. Get your supplies here rather than get overcharged by the amenities in your room like the snacks or alcoholic drinks that the hotels tend to charge an arm and a leg.

    What to buy: anything under the sun like personal care products, sun screen, cheap hats, body lotion, snack foods, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, shampoo, soap, beers, cigarettes and a lot more

    What to pay: not a dent on your wallet! get the best bang for your US Dollar or Cambodian Riel!

    I like the Pun hehehe 24 hour convenience store many convenience stores many choices floating store in Chnong Keas in Tonle Sap

    the Souvenir Shop of Artisans D' Angkor: Artisans D' Angkor

    by machomikemd Written Jun 19, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This will be my Shopping tips on Artisans D' Angkor

    Coming from a destructive Genocide during the Pol Pot Regime in the 1970's where 1/4 of the population were killed and most of them are the skilled people, Cambodia became one of the poorest countries of the world because of this and this is why there are many Non Governmental Organizations (NGO's) are have many foundations in Cambodia to help the country to get on it's feet and this Artisans D' Angkor factory is one of them. They help local cambodians to become skilled artists, specializing in Khmer arts and culture pieces and restorations works for the Angkor Complex. This is one of the stops when having a city tour of Siem Reap where you can buy authentic Khmer arts and crafts like silk, wood & stone carvings, lacquer pieces and more at fair trade prices at their Shop inside the Complex.

    Opens: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: definitely more expensive than buying at the mass produced products at the old market or central market areas since they offer fair trade prices here and most products are hand made so that the struggling artist can live and eat. they can ship the wood or laterite or soft stone carvings you bought here to overseas with an additional shipping charge,

    examples: hand made silk bags will cost $ 40 here while the mass produced silk bags at the markets will cost $ 20 (down to $ 8 if you haggle). Hand Made Silk wallets will cost $ 30 here whil at the mass produced silk wallets at old market will cost $ 5 (if you haggle it, if not then it will cost $ 15).

    What to pay: definitely more expensive than buying the same craft than in the old market or at central market since these are not mass produced and are made by hand and can be called "artisanal crafts"

    outside assorted products angkor wat laterite carving silk bags, walets, shirts and more paintings and more carvings

    Old Market Souvenir Stalls: Shopping Along Old Market (Phsar Chas)

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 19, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This will be my old market shopping tips

    The Old Market of Siem Reap (Psar Chas) is the busiest market in town due to it's central location just a stone's throw away from the touristy pub street and the alleys along pub street. It is even more popular than the newer Central market along Sivutha Boulevard for tourists and the Siem Reap Night Market at the Center of Siem Reap and the main market for locals, the Phsar Leu Thom Thmey at National Road 6. The old market is just along Pokambor Avenue, near the Siem Reap River and bounded by Street 9, Hospital Street and Street 11. It is the busiest market as it has a large collections of souvenir shops, silk shops, local crafts, local food stuffs, local food stalls, a dried good section, a wet goods section, hairdressers, pirated DVD Videos and Computer Applications and more. Some of the stalls here even close late, more so on the areas closest to the alleys going to Pub Street.

    Opens 6:00 am to 12:00 pm everyday

    What to buy: clothes, shoes, sandals, bags, silk items, souvenirs, wooden statues, Angkor Wat’s imitation carvings, Angkor Wat books, jewelries, key chains, palm leaves fan, silk scarves, silk bags, silk metered clothing, silk kimonos, silver jewelries, semi-precious stones, temple rubbings, wooden statues, Angkor stone carvings, and other items with Angkor pictures on them.

    A TIP: Prices here have at least 200% Mark up so that you must bring it down to at least 180% off the quoted price. for example, silk bags sell for US $ 20 dollars you you must bring it down to at least $ 8 for a silk bag. Small messenger bags with elephant designs will cost $ 5, bring it down to $ 2. If they don't agree, then walk away and look at the other stalls as they offer the same items.

    you would notice that they have similar touristy merchandise here at Siem Reap with the Chatuchak Market of Bangkok and the Benh Thanh Market of Saigon.

    What to pay: Not a dent on you wallet if you know how to haggle

    outside souvenir shops packed with items silk merchandise more stuff buying, after much haggling hehehe

    Les Artisans d'Angkor: A great shop that benefits the community

    by trisanna Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is a wonderful shop. They have one location in Siem Reap and another in the Phnom Pehn airport. Les Artisans d'Angkor is a foundation set up by mostly European donors that trains young Cambodians the art of the ancient Khmer civilization. You can walk through the main workshops and see the artists at work. There is a lovely shop that sells the artists' work. With purchase of products here the money goes back to the artist, who made the piece. There are laquer, silk, wood and stone carving workshops.

    The foundation encourages people to buy newly made crafts that resembles the old stuff, since the antique pieces were probably stolen from temples. Don't buy Buddha heads!

    This store, has a great selection of carved stone animals and tiles. They have lovely silk outfits, scarves and gifts.
