Great bar atmosphere. As they don't have a kitchen they allow you to bring food from the street market . DJ is spot on with the music choices and the servers take excellent care of the patrons!

Yes, I had to go to the aptly named Angkor What? bar when I was in Siem Reap and I still have my Angkor What? tee shirt at home. It's pricey (for the area) and definitely a pick up spot, but hey, it does have a great name.

If you want a quiet drink in a tranquil setting, then this bar is quite simply not for you. Expect lots of very rowdy, and very drunk backpackers, who all come here to make the most of the generous happy hour and party long into the night. The bar is located on the aptly named Pub Street and is a great place to come if you’re in the mood to party, where one drink very quickly turns into several.

The most iconic and oldest bar in the pub street. The crowd are mostly backpackers seeking cheap drinks and fun all night long.

The bar that STARTED the Siem Reap Pub Street phenomenon way back in 1998, hip little Angkor What? is a fantastic place to start or end (or both) a night out in SR. Their bucket/pitcher mixed drink specials are good value, and it's one of the places in town virtually guaranteed to have a party going late, with ample possibility for drinking and debauchery.

This was is the hottest place in Siem Reap. All the international travelers gather here to drink and dance. It's fun for a night to enjoy the backpacker's trail.

Ankor What? is located on the famous bar or pub street in downtown Siem Reap. It is one of the oldest bars and brings in a crowd of mostly foreigners and ex-pats pretty consistently. The walls are littered with graffiti giving it a bit of a dive bar feel. Come here to play some pool, meet some foreigners, and have a laid back good time.
