Som Ang: Where the painters in Siem Reap live
About the host
Som Ang is an elderly lady in Siem Reap who is watching the house while her kids are out for work. Since her daughter works in tourism, she occasionally brings guests home for a meal, most of them from Thailand. That’s the reason why Som Ang not only speaks Thai, she also has quite some knowledge about the Thai cuisine. The location is on the way to Angkor Wat, but you won’t need a temple ticket.

Som Angs house is located on the way to Angkor Wat, but you don’t need a ticket. Left and right the famous artists have their shops, and before or after the meal you can check their beautiful paintings and have a chat with them about their work. If you come for dinner, her garden is a nice place to watch the sunset – you can even have your meal there, surrounded by banana trees.
