"OLD MARKET (Phsar Chas)" Siem Reap Shopping Tip by ancient_traveler

Siem Reap Shopping: 11 reviews and 30 photos

The Old Market is themost visited by tourists, offering the deepest selection of souvenirs and curios of any of the traditional markets.

The 2 Thnou Street side of the market is a mix of local and tourist vendors, some offering souvenirs, others specializing in clothing, shoes and hats aimed more at the local consumer. The opposite Street 11 side is also a mix, with many vendors offering handicrafts, puppets, musical instruments and basketry and local food and dried fish vendors toward the other end.

The Old Market closes at sunset, though many of the souvenir vendors stay open well past 8:00PM.

What to buy: There are souvenir vendors on all sides off the market and into the interior, especially on the south (river) side - offering silks, silverworks, carvings, statuary, art and handicrafts as well as t-shirts, post cards, boot-legged DVDs and books.
