A short drive from the wonders of Angkor Wat and the Angkor archaeological park, Baby Elephant is situated in a quiet area very close to Pub Street, the Night Market and the centre of Siem Reap. Our location is about an 800-metre tuk tuk ride from Night Market and 1.1km from Pub Street.
With only 7 kilometres between us and the World Heritage site, you can be back quickly and lounging by our pool with a cold drink before you know it. When you want to spend a day exploring our local neighbourhood, there are some pretty interesting things to see just right on your doorstep too.
Experience Pub Street, a bustling area that attracts Cambodians and tourists alike to share in the bright lights, many bars and restaurants and at night becomes alive with revellers and relaxed travellers alike.
Take a stroll through the Night Market, where you’ll find many treasures and some delicious BBQ bites, with new restaurants and street vendors opening daily.
Just before that is the famous Sok San Road, which is lined with restaurants and is becoming more popular due its more relaxed nature.
To experience a traditional Cambodian market not too far from us is the Old Market. This bustling hive of activity is a great place for a wander any time of the day.
If you fancy boutique shopping, coffee and gourmet cafe eats – then the New York Times’ approved Kandal Village is going to be worthwhile checking out.
Continue down towards the Night Market and you’ll see another curious sight – The Harbour. This pirate-themed bar and tattoo studio is a great place to pop in on a lazy evening to play some of their board games or catch local events such as the open mic night.
A little bit further down and if you’re in need of an espresso coffee, The Missing Socks cafe has the best coffee within walking distance of Baby Elephant. With your takeaway coffee in hand, you might like to duck across the road to visit Artisans d’Angkor. Artisans d’Angkor offers the creme de la creme of Cambodian artisania, so all artists and creative-minded folk should check it out when you visit!
If you are still feeling energetic, you can continue walking from Artisan d’Angkor to find the Siem Reap Platinum cinema, where a range of films are shown in English with Khmer subtitles every day.
