Siem Reap is a bustling tourist town located just a few kilometers from the famous temples at Angkor Wat. Millions of people descent on the town each year with the sole purpose of visiting the great temples at Angkor. As a result of the growing tourist trade in Siem Reap, the town has grown to provide all sorts of activities and attractions for you to enjoy in the evening.
Pub Street is nearly as popular as the temples! If you come to Siem Reap, it’s almost certain that you will walk down Pub Street and explore the surrounding areas. The street primarily houses restaurants and there’s something for everyone on this small street and surrounding alleys.
If you’re looking for a drink, you can regularly find happy hour drinks promotions with beers starting from less than a dollar a glass. If it’s a party you want, then you’re in luck. Pub Street is home to the Angkor What? Bar and Temple Bar. Both are open until the early hours of the morning and tourists are often seen enjoying a drink and dancing long after the sun goes down.
The Grand Bayon Siem Reap Hotel is only a short walk from the Pub Street area, but we’re far enough away to be a in quiet part of town.
The Night Markets are another popular destination for tourists in the evening. Most night markets sell similar souvenirs and gifts and they are interesting to explore and find a great gift for loved ones back home.
There are also many places to eat and drink around the night markets as well as get a massage or one of the famous Dr Fish foot massages.
