- Siem Reap has its fair share of arts and culture. Traditional Apsara dance shows, shadow puppet performances, photo exhibitions, film nights and lots more can add to your evening’s entertainment. Check out local newspapers and look for posters in restaurants and cafes around town.
- Leave some room in your bag for shopping in Siem Reap. Added to the lively markets there are also a growing number of fair trade shops and community based projects producing high quality and interesting gifts, the profits of which benefit organizations supporting the disadvantaged, the environment and the animals of Cambodia.
- For a different experience ask the staff in your hotel where they shop. They will point you in the direction of a local market you won’t have heard of.
- Siem Reap has a great variety of NGO (non government organization/charity) restaurants with great food where the more you can eat the more you help local projects!!!! Try Sala Bai, Paul Dubrule Hotel and Tourism School, Green Star and others
