About
Some may find it over-powering, but if you're looking for where everybody is, then Pub Street it is. Lined with restaurants and bars selling cheap beer and reasonable food. Later on, the music starts thumping and there's often almost a party atmosphere. People watching is free.

Pub Street is most definitely not going to suit everyone, especially at night, when it gets busy and loud. My wife and I visited in the afternoon and enjoyed touring the various bars to see what was on offer, and found some places with really low prices.

We are both in our 60s, yet quite enjoyed the atmosphere at night, but left before it became really raucous. However, the main reason we left was not to avoid the noise and large crowds, but because we had an early rise to go and visit Angkor Wat for the sunrise.

I'd definitely recommend a visit, but would suggest going in the afternoon to have a better look around in the daylight and get your bearings before returning after dark.

In such a small city where most people if not everyone are there to visit many many temples this mad place exists. One Main Street but really it is many. Lights everywhere, noise everywhere and tuk tuk drivers everywhere. There is the noise from a wrestling place, a few karaoke bars, singers in bars and the street noise. There are many restaurants to choose from plus a night market selling the same tourist tat on every stall, remember to barter. It is bright, it is brash but go with it. If you need to stay up drinking until 0400 you can too. We’re getting old we were up at 0400 to do a sunrise tour after having a full nights sleep lol.

After a long day of enjoying the beautiful city, everyone wishes to have a nice break in the evening. Pub street has something for everyone I guess. I have not travelled much, so would be wrong to compare with other cities having pub streets or similar places. The dining options are many, enough bars to accommodate different tastes, shopping choices, and easy travel via tuktuk could be the reasons that I saw even families enjoying evenings with kids there. During my stay of 4 days in the city, I tried 5 different places to eat and didn’t regret it. Food prices were fairly reasonable. After 10 pm most of the tuktuk drivers charge approx 3-4 USD to take you back. Though using your cards is not a problem, it’s easier to carry cash for shopping.

If Siem Reap seems quiet at night, maybe it's because everyone's on Pub Street? It's worth a visit at least once if just for the entertainment value. Like a lot of streets designed to bring people hungry for food and fun together, to stroll a traffic free street, think Austin's 6th Street on weekends, this is a nightly, party place with lots of choices for food, cheap beer and loud music. No recommendations, the less said about the place we chose (Mexican) the better. If you are looking for finer dining at a slightly higher price point, stroll past the street vendors selling,( just to be clear dead and cooked) tarantulas, scorpions and little snakes in an S curve on a skewer, into one of the alleys lined with tables and if you're lucky you'll stumble across the multi-level Italian place Il Viccino, like we did. Loved it so much, it has its own review.

Pub Street is open during the day, but really comes to life after dark. Live and "canned" music, along with overhead decorative lighting, add to the festive feel of Pub Street.
There are restaurants of all kinds -- Italian, Greek, Indian were some that we tried. We repeatedly enjoyed the one-dollar "milkshakes" (more like smoothies). The fried ice cream rolls were yummy too.
Some of us tried out the tanks with the little fish that nibble at the dead skin on your feet. It is crazy ticklish!
Several of us enjoyed relaxing and chatting while getting massages. One got a full massage, most got foot massages. I enjoyed foot, hand and head massage. And one friend even got a pedicure at the same time!
It's hard not to get tempted by some of the many little souvenirs or clothing in the night market.
I'd definitely recommend Pub Street at least once during your stay in Siem Reap.

We visited at 8pm and it was still quite empty so lacked the character I'm sure it has when busy. The area is still suffering from a lack of visitors. Hope they come back soon or the venues/staff will suffer.

Absolute chaos here! So much going on I don’t know where to start haha. A mixture of chart music playing in different bars offering pints at 0.25p happy hour and 0.50p normal hours!! What the.... it’s safe to say we got extremely drunk paying these prices and ladies happy hour makes margaritas £1.00!! Very dangerous!
A selection of western foods too and Khmer restaurants. Be aware of Temple Bar, they will drown out any music in any other bar, when you go you will know!

Pub Street is a popular tourist spot in the heart of Siem Reap. Think Khao San Road in Bangkok, Bui Vien Street in HCMC or Lan Kwai Fong district in Hong Kong and this is what you will find at Pub Street in Siem Reap.

This is a short street, perhaps just 60-80 metres in length, yet lined with bars offering up cheap draught beer and cocktails, music, karake and hangout spots for foreign travellers looking for a place to meet up, chat and enjoy a round or two. Many of the places offer up meals including local Khmer and western food. You'll find a couple cooking school opportunities here as well.

We visited Pub Street a couple times during our recent visit to Siem Reap. Had a round at Paper Tiger Bar and Restaurant that was fine. Enjoyed better drinks and a surprisingly good meal at The Kitchen 2002.

Beyond Pub Street, there are cheap eats places, some better restaurants, more bars, fruit stands, spa and massage places and quite a bit of souvenir shopping in the surrounding streets as well.

Popping down for meals at night while I’ve been in Siem Reap, I don’t think I’ve seen it have a quiet night... for New Years Eve, Pub St really put on a lively atmosphere with stage set up and pumping music.
There were so many more people there it was overwhelming. Personally I’m not into en masse events but it was an experience I won’t forget.
Despite Pub St being a touristy area, the whole show with hosts conducted the night in native tongue which was great to amongst.

There’s definitely plenty of choices for restaurants and massages, as well as giftware.. take your time do a wander.
Tuk tuks are everywhere so getting to and from
isn’t too difficult and a cheap way to get around.
NYE traffic however was crazy busy and there a price hike for that tuk tuk ride.

This is a really lively area (it's not one street but an area full of restaurants and shops)
We ate there each night of our 4 nights stay at different restaurants every night. The food was excellent. I only gave it 4 stars because some of the restaurants play music so loudly that even if you are 50 yards away in a different restaurant you cannot have a conversation with the person next to you.
