Khett Siem Reab Shopping: 63 reviews and 124 photos

 
 

While in Siem Reap and at the temples you will run into MANY vendors trying to sell you post cards, scarves or other local crafts. They are relentless. Given the prices [inexpensive] and the economy -- buying a couple sets of postcards and a few scarves won't break you and may help them. [Although they seem to work for subcontractors so who knows ...]

These are traditional Khmer cotton scarves. The green one I bought at Angkor Wat for $1 US -- the checked one was given to each of us by our tour company.

What to buy: Scarves, wooden instruments ...
.
See my Phnom Penh page for how to wear these scarves.

What to pay: Everything is inexpensive.

Address: They'll find YOU!
Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
