Siem Reap, a city in the northwest of Cambodia, is the capital city of the Province of Siem Reap. It has a rich heritage and is popular for its unique architecture, lifestyle, and natural beauty. Over the years Siem Reap has grown to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region, being home to several historic and cultural landmarks, as well a thriving tourism and hospitality industry.

 

Siem Reap is known for its night markets, which are great to explore if you want a local excursion from your luxury hotel in Siem Reap. However, shopping is not the only thing the night markets are known for, as they are also the hubs of street food in Siem Reap. This is especially true of the night markets of Siem Reap, chiefly, the Angkor Night Market, located in close proximity to the renowned Anantara Angkor Resort.

 

If you are a passionate foodie and love checking out the street food scene wherever you go, and you find yourself in Siem Reap, simply head down to the Angkor Night Market. You will find many vendors selling some of Siem Reap’s top street food, in shopping stalls, way-side kiosks, or mobile stalls. One food item that is very popular in the street food scene is Nom pao; a bun packed with delicious chunks of pork. Pong tae koun, a kind of poached duck egg, is also a very popular street food. Sausages on a skewer are another very popular street food. It is almost never that you will walk out of a night market without seeing these juicy BBQ sausages hanging from on the walls of one of the street vendors, who will lather it up with a delicious sweet sauce and serve it hot! As with sausage skewers, beef and pork skewers are popular too. Nom banh chok, a dish of noodles with gravy and spices is also worth trying out. You can also try out Prawn Fritters, pickled fruits, and sugar cane juice!
