Floods are gone on Old Market Area

Quick update everyone - the waters have largely subsided at the Old Market Area as of yesterday, so if you are planning to come to Siem Reap, it's really ok now. It rained last night but the rain did not seem to do much damage.

The only place that is still badly flooded is across the Siem Reap river at Wat Bo road. A tourist told me yesterday that water at the road leading to her guesthouse at Wat Bo was still knee high. Also the Old Market road beside the river was still flooded.

I'm sorry I did not update yesterday as was busy with Bloom. Sina, our manager at the workshop in Phnom Penh is up here for a brainstorm meeting.

I'll take a walk around the Old Market in a bit to take photos to confirm that the water is still away.

Thanks for the information.
I will be going to Siem Reap on Oct 10 and it is quite a releave to know that the water has subsided.
Is it safe to go to Tonle Sap ?

Hi mmz, yes it's safe now. For a while the tuk tuks would not drive out to the river where the boats leave for Battambang and Phnom Penh but everything is ok now.
Cheers
Diana
