Angkor Night Market is Siem Reap’s most renowned shopping venue, housing over 200 bamboo huts selling a wide range of clothing and handicrafts by local communities and non-governmental organizations. Located in downtown Siem Reap, this outdoor market was established in 2007 to help preserve traditional Khmer handicrafts and improve the lives of Khmer people.

Expect plenty of one-of-a-kind goods such as silk paintings, shadow puppets, and intricate stone carvings embellished in silver or brass. A good option for eco-friendly items is the ‘Angkor Recycled’ stall, which offers an extensive range of bags, wallets, purses, and pouches that are made from recycled materials.

Angkor Night Market highlights

A pampering foot or body massage is a must after exploring Angkor Night Market’s numerous shops. A traditional Khmer massage treatment helps soothes fatigued muscles using a combination of local herbs and white wine compress.

If you’re feeling hungry, there are also several dining venues within the market, where you can enjoy live music performances, local and western delicacies, beers, cocktails, smoothies, and beers at attractive prices. Set within a landscaped garden off Sivatha Boulevard, Angkor Night Market is within a 5-minute walk of Pub Street.
