Sunday is the day of rest, especially for these weary travelers. We spent much of day 4 alongside the pool at Somadevi Angkor Hotel and Spa. Just a few bucks will get you full access to the pool, lounge and swim-up bar.

Part of our lunch at My Little Cafe. The small shop had a big menu with equally big flavors. We had spring rolls, papaya salad, a bitter melon soup and Lok Lak (not shown). Really enjoying the food in Cambodia so far.

The Made in Cambodia market is hosted on the grounds of Shinta Mani Resort. The market features amazing work from local artisans, a few food carts and live music and dance performances a few times a week.

I swear we don't go looking for craft beer; it finds us! In a city of cheap (albeit refreshing) beer, we were shocked to run across Siem Reap Brewpub at the Made in Cambodia Market. And at $1.50 USD a glass no less! We tried the Dark Ale, IPA and Golden Ale... All quite good!

Local rice spirits distiller Sombai was on hand, pouring samples of their delicious infused adult beverages. Maybe it was the thin crowd, but the lady worked through all eight flavors, leaving us a little light on our feet after the beers.

If this is as close as we get to the aptly-named tourist hangout of Pub Street, that might be okay. Although we have to try the place Angelina Jolie hung out when shooting Tomb Raider, right?
