The Old Market is in the centre of Siem Reap town opposite the Siem Reap River. Most visitors have heard of the Old Market and they have it on their list of attractions to see in Siem Reap. You will see many visitors looking for souvenirs or just browsing. Other things to buy in Siem Reap at the Old Market are gold jewelry, silver jewelry and gems. There is also a food section where you can buy fruit, vegetables, meats, fish and groceries.

The Central Market is located on Sivatha Road and here you will see mostly souvenirs for sale. It is not as busy as the Old Market and you can walk around the Central Market with more ease without getting pestered so much from the sellers. The Central Market is geared more towards tourists and it is on a lot of visitor's lists of things to do in Siem Reap.

The New Market is located about 3km from Siem Reap town centre on the way to Phnom Penh on National Road No.6. It sells everything from food items, house wares, gold jewelry, fruit and vegetables, clothes etc. If you would like some clothes made by a tailor, then this is also the market to go too. The New Market is mostly visited by the locals and you will see fewer tourists here, so you will not get as pestered and you will also find items cheaper than any of the other markets.

There is a night market called Angkor Night Market which is open from 4:00pm to midnight and is just at the back of Sivatha Street. This market sells many items such as handicrafts, souvenirs, clothes, jewelry and it also has an Asian food court, foot & head massage, live painting and a entertainment area.

The central locale of Siem Reap is endowed with a number of Nightclubs and Bars in Siem Reap and these places come alive after the sunset. Native people along with the tourists throng to the bars, pubs, night clubs and discos from the early evening and the party runs till the morning. Nightlife venues are scattered across the town of Siem Reap but many are clustered in the Old Market area, especially along the vibrant zone of Pub Street.

Opened on 12 November 2007, the Angkor National Museum offers visitors a better understanding of the area's archeological treasures. It is best if you can visit the museum a day before going to the temples. It is composed of eight separate galleries, all connected by a vaulted corridor with a series of fountains and lined with what seems like all the Angkorian limestone lion and demon heads missing from statues at the temples. The museum is 2 minutes drive from Sokha Siem Reap Resort & Convention Center.

The War museum has tanks and other war artifacts from previous wars and it is located just off National Road No.6 to Siem Reap airport on the right hand side, where you will see a big sign when to turn off. The war museum is US$3 to enter and opens from 8:00am to 5:30pm daily.

The Silk Farm definitely needs to be on your list of things to see in Siem Reap, because you are sure to find it very interesting to see how silk is made. It is located 16km from Siem Reap. At the silk farm you can take a guided tour around the farm, where you will be shown how silk is made.
