Shopping At Siem Reap's Phsar Leu Thom Thmey

Nothing like wandering through a town's big, central market to liven the senses. Food, clothing, toiletries, jewelry, supplies, it's all available at Phsar Leu Thom Thmey.

The fish preppers.


Women rule the place, (wo)manning most of the stalls, no matter what the specialty. The butcher, the vegetable seller.

Grande dame.


Lasi? seller. Advertising area.

Around Other Siem Reap Temples

The big boys of Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm get most of the attention in Siem Reap, justifiably so. They're blockbusters. There are still plenty of smaller delights to see, with the bonus of fewer crowds and random, amusing details.

Fashion shoot! These days, you don't just stand in front of a famous place and have your picture taken. Now, you get swanked out, find a suitable location and pose it up, complete with posse ready to critique the shoot.

Monks also need help sometimes. Temple guard.
