Siem Reap Trip 2014 - Day 1 - Old Market
After settling down in the hotel, we were all ready to explore the city. Got a map from the tour desk of the hotel. The main area to explore must be the old market, PUB Street and the night market. Took a tuk tuk from hotel to old market for US$3 (cause there were four of us - if there's one or two person can easily bargain to US$2). The tuk tuk is the most common transportation for tourists to explore the city, is actually a cabin attached to a motorcycle. Most of the tut tuk's drivers can speak English and some Chinese. Took us less than 10 minutes to reach the market. Great place for photography. OMG, the poor chicken had their feet stretched so straight. Beside selling wet produces, the market sold souvenirs and clothes too. Remember to bargain at least 50% for your souvenirs, most can be bought for US$3 and under.
