AHA’s Souvenir Market
The AHA Fair Trade Village provides local artisans the opportunity to showcase their artwork to travelers looking for responsible shopping in Siem Reap. It is a permanent open marketplace where everything on display is hand made exclusively by local Cambodian artisans and their communities within the rural areas surrounding Siem Reap Town.
Shopping in Siem Reap and finding authentic souvenirs is sometimes complicated for most visitors; it is estimated that over 80% of the souvenir goods sold in town are imported or mass produced and most travelers are unable to identify authentic products.This negatively impacts the local handicraft sector, and the ability for local artisans to make a living.
