Siem Reap Old Market
Not for the squeamish
What we say:
The market's greatest attraction is the wet foods section right in the belly of the beast where you can see (and smell) what an authentic Cambodian fresh foods market is like.
On the weathered tables of mostly female vendors you'll find fish still flapping, colourful assortments of fresh fruits, vegetables, spices, dried chillies and pungent pastes along with Cambodian sweet coconut milk cold "soups" and local sausages that don't taste like you think they will.
The crowded and tight market isn't for the claustrophobic (or the squeamish) but if you enjoy checking out local foods and want to pick up a cheap t-shirt or souvenir on the way out, the Old Market is worth a wander.
