Angkor Trade Fair – Showcasing Siem Reap Products

We went to the Angkor Trade Fair held at the Raffles Park a couple of weeks ago to see the products that are being offered by various business owners in Siem Reap. It was indeed a successful and bustling event attended by locals, expats and of course a lot of travellers passing by Siem Reap.

Aside from the products presented, Siem Reap also introduced the seal of authenticity that they are intending to put on products that are originally made from Siem Reap to give buyers the assurance that the products they are buying are originally from here.
