Try Siem Reap street food style
Stuffed frog, sauteed cricket and deep fried tarantula are probably the best known examples of Cambodia’s rich street food tradition.
You can try these 'amazing' dishes at Siem Reap Market or at hotel where you stay.
Try a fishy foot massage
After a long day of temple-trekking, give your worn-out feet a little TLC to prepare for the next day's adventures.
Spas offering reflexology, massages and more can be found at any hotel,but the independent Frangipani also gets consistently high marks and Spa Indochine's traditional treatments are freshly prepared with local ingredients each day.
If you're not looking to splurge, the area around Pub Street is lined with dozens of shops. A half-hour reflexology treatment runs about US$5, or try a “fish massage” -- tiny fish will nibble dead skin from your toes. The going rate is US$1 for 15 minutes or US$3 for 20 minutes and a can of Angkor.

Siem Reap Old Market
Explore the old market or French quarter
The old market or the French quarter of Siem Reap is the heart of the city during the day time. The locals buy their fruits, vegetables, fish, clothes, shoes and many other goods here. The touristy shops are also located on the fringe of it. It is a great place to understand local day-to-day culture and see true Cambodian life. A lot of restaurants and souvenir shops can help the tourist indulge in something outside the local culture.
Sunrise at Angkor Wat
While the main Angkor Wat temple and all the other temples around it are really beautiful and intricate, the sunrise has its own special way of making you feel that time has stopped and you are in heaven. The only flip side is that this means an real early morning rise, but the good thing is the much more bearable and pleasant weather.
