One of the most enjoyable experiences in any Asian city is to visit the markets. The Psar Chaa, the central market of Siem Reap, is in the city center surrounded by food stalls, restaurants, small hotels, tuc-tucs ... In the market you can find everything: stone carvings, wood, silk, clothing, jewelry, all kinds of crafts ... Part of the market sells food (meat, fish, vegetables, spices .. ) where local restaurants buy raw materials for their kitchens. Ah! It essential to haggle!
In the city of Phnom Penh, there are six major markets. All are special and colorful and easy to get lost in for a few hours and mix with the Cambodians, witnessing their daily lives, more than what we can see in the touristy spots. The Central Market is the most popular in the capital, with lots of stalls inside. Its X-shaped building has a central dome, in each of its arms are different themes (clothes, meat, jewelry, books, clothing, etc..). Here you can find all kinds of bugs to eat - not for the squeamish! You can find that special souvenir for your partner, family or friends. Or just something useful that you may need!
