    It's only a short tour, but the demo is incredible, and the work they do deserves as much support as possible.
    Forget your feelings about rats being vermin - these are anything but (as well as being the biggest rats you'll ever have seen) - intelligent and capable of detecting tiny fractions of explosive meters deep.
    Deeply impressive.

    You should visit this museum before you visit Angkor Wat. It has many artifacts. It's clean. Has friendly staff. It has a gift shop.

    I highly recommend paying a visit to this little gem. The museum is on the way to Bentay Seray temple and only 40 mins by Tuktuk from Siem Reap. The experience was very educative and touching. It helped me understand a side of history that I wasn’t familiar with. It would be a pity to come to Cambodia and not get familiar with this part of history. Thanks to the staff for your priceless and enriching work!

    I wasn’t sure what to make of this place but it was a lot of fun! Kids had a blast and were excited to take pictures, which is never the case :P

    A typical Asian market. I usually stop here to buy produce, although they have plenty of seafood, meat, and fresh eggs too. Non-food items include clothing, footwear, souvenirs, soaps, etc. The food part of the market is dirty, smelly, noisy, and has a typical selection of aforementioned food items. Again, typical southeast Asian market. It's more popular with foreigners than another similar and bigger market about two kilometers away. Because of that, sometimes items here are a bit more expensive because vendors are used to charging foreigners extra. But it does the job I suppose. Each vendor is a little different. Some will overcharge you. Some are reasonable. After living here a while, I just know what a good price is and what isn't. If unsure, I ask three or four vendors what the price is per kilo of a particular item. I refuse to ever pay the same price as the grocery store for something. Overall, in terms of produce, the market has a good selection and is conveniently located right next to pub street.

    Stunning collection of artefacts, instruments and items for every day use. Also a showcase for Mr Theam's arresting paintings. Lovely gardens and cafe. Wonderful mini museum.

    Beautiful little alley with many unique boutiques, workshops, bakery and coffeeshop. We stumbled across it as we googled for Louise Loubatieres and found ourselves in this alley - bought nice jewelry at LL, a beautiful leather purse at DSK, delicious cinnamon rolls from The Village Bakery and great coffee at The Little Red Fox!
    You can either just stroll through the shops or spend more time here by enjoying coffee and food.
    For us a must see place if you like local/unique artisans.
    Make sure you grab a little booklet of the village with all shop owners and info.

    One section of the Angkor Panorama Museum is very much worth visiting. Panorama Hall is a dome-like structure with a viewing platform at its centre. From there you can take in three scenes titled 'Defence Strategy', 'Construction Strategy', and 'Prosperity.'

    The three-dimensional illusion created here is the most impressive I’ve seen anywhere requiring only the naked eye. At certain points, it really feels as if you’re gazing miles off into the distance.

    The attention to detail is striking and with a good guide, as I was provided with, much can be learned. One scene depicts Khmers, under Jayavarman VII (then just a General) retaking their capital from the Chams in 1181. It had been captured four years earlier.

    The movie was melodramatic but somewhat instructive and the maps at the entrance were helpful as well. But the Panorama Hall is the best section by far, in my view.

    This is a must visit destination if you travel to Siem Reap. Suggest you get a tuk tuk from town (not too far away but you don't want to walk in the high heat and humidity) and have them wait for you while you explore as it's not a large place.

    The venue has a workshop and a gallery. A lady named Sina spoke perfect English and walked me through the workshop and the process they undergo, including the lacquerware and how they make some of the art pieces, including the one I eventually ordered.

    I fell in love with a particular piece with silver leaf lotus flowers but it was mounted on wood (ie high freight costs and custom issues) and didn't have fish. Sina indicated that they could custom make something for me, put it on canvas, and add koi that I wanted (rather than the catfish they usually have). I prepaid including freight cost, which was very reasonable given it was made to order. Sina also sent me a picture of different koi via Whatsapp for me to choose which ones I wanted.

    The canvas arrived professional packaged so it wouldn't be damaged in transit. I had it stretched and mounted on a floating frame (attached) at 176x93cm.

    I highly recommend this place and to take home (or order) a high quality piece of art work at a reasonable price and support the local community.

    Enjoy a different atmosphere at St J, nevertheless, still feel at home. Kind Jesuit fathers and GREAT gift shops the wood products of which is made by local disabled people. Notice Jesus suffering on the cross, of which one of his leg is shorter than the other due to land mines accident. A great cross gift for folks at home.

    A great place to teach kids and adults about environment issues while having fun. The team is really creative to find new way to teach about environmental issues in Cambodia, and to the Cambodian people. Their documentaries are also incredible and all in Khmer language.
    Don't hesitate to help them spread their knowledge !
