Phsar Chas (Old Market)
The Old Market (Phsar Chas) and surrounding area including the nearby Pub Street, Pub Street alleys and the Night Markets are 'must sees' when visiting Siem Reap. Very popular, the whole Old Market area stretching from the river across to the night markets on Sivutha Blvd is now the dining, shopping and nightlife center of town.

 

Of the various traditional Cambodian markets in Siem Reap, the Old Market offers the deepest selection of souvenirs and curios. There are souvenir vendors on all sides off the market and into the interior, especially on the river side - offering silks, silverworks, carvings, statuary, art and handicrafts as well as t-shirts, boot-legged DVDs and books.

 

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 side opposite Street 11 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 north side of the market along Street 9 caters more to the locals than tourists, vending fruit, vegetables, meats, clothes, hardware and such but there are several interesting local spice, tea and coffee vendors on this side and a number of inexpensive cafe stalls lining the street, serving Cambodian fare in an interesting, very local atmosphere. A good place for a budget meal and a taste of real Cambodian cuisine.  

 

The streets in the area around the market, especially the now famous Pub Street and Pub Street Alleys, sport dozens of tourist oriented business including galleries and boutiques, restaurants, cafes, bars, massage and spas, travel agents, bookstores, a pharmacy and lots more.

Phsar Leu Thom Thmei
Ordinarily called Phsar Leu, this market is the main traditional market for the locals - an expansive market building full of vendors and stalls hawking everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to motorcycle parts, clothing and rice by the bushel. Not a good place to shop for souvenirs but a great place to see a bit of real Cambodia. The old Phsar Leu was torn down a few years ago and a new market building constructed and renamed ‘Phsar Leu Thom Thmey’ (Big, New Upper Market). Opens and closes with the sun. Busiest in the morning.

What to Buy...

Hand-woven Cambodian silks, wood carvings, statues and castings, modern fashion and accessories, contemporary Cambodian art, handicrafts, temple rubbings, silver areca containers, basketry, t-shirts and nifty products made from recycled rice bags are among the most popular souvenirs. The most useful and one of the cheapest souvenirs is a traditional checkered Cambodian scarf, called a ‘krama.’ If you don't mind looking like a tourist, wear it around your neck like the locals do to keep the tropical sun off the back of your neck.

 

Cambodian Silks

Cambodia has a long and rich history in silk production that dates back more than a thousand years; Cambodian silk is prized by silk collectors the world over. A fascinating way to learn about Cambodian silk is to visit Angkor Silk Farm, where you can take a free guided tour that explain the meticulous process of silk production, from cultivating mulberry bushes to the Cambodian ikat technique and the dyeing, weaving, and creation of silk fabrics. In Siem Reap, both raw and fine silks are available in the form of short bolts, sarongs, clothing and various handicrafts.

 

Silverwork & Betel boxes


Silver areca containers are popular traditional souvenirs. These pounded silver containers are ordinarily shaped as animals, fruits and boxes. Made to hold dried areca nut, they are still used in ceremonial and everyday life. (Areca nut, also known as 'betel nut,' is a mild stimulant chewed as one chews tobacco. You may notice people in the countryside, especially older women, with teeth stained black from years of chewing areca.) Nowadays, the containers are made primarily for sale as souvenirs but are still hand crafted using traditional techniques and styles.

 

Gems & Jewelry

Gems are a tempting souvenir. Western Cambodia, particularly in the area of Pailin, has long been a fertile source of colored stones - rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The traditional markets in Siem Reap are full of jewelers specializing in Cambodian sapphires and rubies. There are also several jewelry shops in town. Know something about gems and/or know the jeweler before spending much money.

 

Statues and carvings

Statues and carvings of traditional subjects, often replicas of Angkorian-era works as well as buddhas and various Hindu gods and personages, are available in stone, wood and brass. Statues can make for relatively heavy, bulky souvenirs but are still very popular because of their beauty and artistic value. The replica of an Angkorian era bust of Jayavarman VII with its graceful lines and peaceful smile is truly captivating and is perhaps the most popular piece.

 

Contemporary Fashions

Cambodia-based and local designers are producing a wide range of clothing and accessories that bring a modern twist to traditional Khmer designs and patterns. From bags created from the ubiquitous Khmer krama or stylish dresses patterned with the Cambodian ikat, in Siem Reap you'll find clothing and accessories that are uniquely Cambodian. In the Old Market area on Alley West, you’ll find a cluster of funky clothing shops selling fresh, new styles, many of which are made with locally-sourced fabrics and sustainable techniques. Another popular item that you’ll see around town are colorful recycled rice bags that have been made into a variety of inexpensive products such as purses and laptop bags.

 

Pepper, Spices & Coffee

Cambodia coffees, teas and spices, especially the famed Kampot pepper, are prized in kitchens around the world.
