Wanting to find some unique things to do whilst in Siem reap? take a read of ‘An Unorthodox Journey to Siem Reap’.
As a city, Siem Reap also has many attractions that add to the charm of the city. Just right in the heart of the city, you can visit the area where cool was born and it is known as Kandal Village. Despite the name, Kandal Village is actually just a road called Hup Guan Street that is located between bustling Old Market and the serene French Quarter. In this street, there are many great finds. Start by having a great cup of coffee at Little Red Fox Espresso by the fabulous duo Adam Rodwell and David Stirling who originally from Australia but in love with Siem Reap and decided to stay.
Next, to their quirky coffee shop, cum hair salon (David is a great hairdresser) is Saarti where you can find home and body product that is 100 per cent made in Cambodia founded by Beck Scougall. In this great shop, you can also find a contemporary and one-of-a-kind yukata brand Jipsekhemer that is designed by Amanda Barnes. Still, in the same ‘village’ we can find more great things such as Trunkh (fascinating bric-a-brac shop) and beautiful silk shop called Soieries du Mekong that has the best Cambodian silk products.
Congratulations to all the wonderful Siem reap businesses mentioned.
