Old Market in Siem Reap is extremely lively. Right in the heart of town, it’s got location, posterity and an abundance of offerings on its side. It’s got clothing, spices, housewares, jewellery, rat-traps, fabrics and detergent for washing them, souvenirs, DVDs and, of course, food, and they cater to absolutely everyone in town.

In a town that bears little resemblance to the country that lies beyond its perimeters, this market offers a glimpse of real Cambodia. Heading to the food market — in the middle of the market — early in the morning is an experience that shouldn’t be missed.
