Siem Reap, Cambodia

On my last day in Siem Reap , I decided to make it my ‘No Itinerary day’ and just experience the charming small city on foot. I Got up at 6 am and decided to visit the central market to experience how the locals start their day. Indeed, it was an interesting morning where everything was relatively new to my senses.

Pub Street has vibrant nightlife but the shops here are quite pricey.  Better to shop at Angkor Night Market a few blocks away.
