After we had brunch at Sisters, we wandered down the road to the Russian Market which basically sells just about anything and everything! I was most fascinated by the people in the market, those working, those napping, those gossiping....Loads of meat on offer. A friend says it looked very fresh (and she would know) but I was a bit freaked out by all the flies! Lots of hammocks hanging around as you might get a bit tired during your shift...
From pub street I moved towards the riverside Old Market. Lots and lots of souvenir shops. Then crossed to the other side of the river. Nothing much to see that side, except a few restaurants including Hard Rock Cafe.I made my way back to pub street area to have dinner at Dakshin - an Indian restaurant in a lane off pub-street. It offers both North Indian and South Indian cuisine. Chic ambience and awesome food, one of the best that I have had outside India.Day 14: Siem Reap
