An eye-catching destination in Siem Reap city, The Heritage Walk, was developed by Metro Lifestyle Development Co. Ltd to offer new leisure and entertainment experiences to the local community and tourists as well as international travellers.

Travellers can easily visit The Heritage Walk mall as it is strategically located in the city centre, near to the lively Pub Street and the Royal Gardens, and is surrounded by guesthouses and hotels. Since its official opening eight months ago, the mall has seen a growing trend of local teenagers and travellers visiting the mall.

Mall visitors are mainly attracted by the elegant lifestyle mall’s partially open-air concept and al fresco setting of cafes, which creates a relaxing and comfortable ambience. This in turn makes this largest mall in Siem Reap a great destination for dining and spending leisurely moments with family members or friends.

Leading food and beverage (F&B) brands like Domino’s Pizza, Korean Lotteria, Taiwanese Koi, Tous Les Jours, Starbucks and Swensen’s have set up outlets in the mall, to cater to the palates of international travellers and young locals. Visitors can also indulge in a movie treat at Legends Cinema, which has five theatre halls with a total capacity of 1,000 seats.

Activities for children are held from time to time in the mall.

The Heritage Walk General Manager Sam Ol Sokhom told The Post the mainstays of The Heritage Walk are the F&B and entertainment outlets. However, they are exploring possibilities of bringing on more retail outlets and probably a grocery chain-store brand, to add to the mall’s 50 major tenants. The purpose is to offer a variety of shops for the different needs of visitors.

“The Heritage Walk has a toy shop which organises children activities from time to time, helping to attract families. This is in line with the mall’s aim to attract a diverse crowd of millennial, local and international travellers, families and senior citizens,” he added.

The mall will be bringing in some pubs and other entertainment outlets to extend its current business hours (10am to 10pm).

Other than its mixture of shops and facilities, another standout feature of The Heritage Walk is its architecture which boasts a modern and stylish design with distinct Khmer flair. Designed by renowned Khmer architectural firm Five Arc, the mall’s interior has an emphasis on nature.

Sam: We will add pubs and entertainment outlets.

Out of its 8,000 square metres space, half of it has been placed with plants and trees as well as furnished with a touch of wood decorations and water fountains to create a natural environment.

The Heritage Walk has added to the variety of leisure options in Siem Reap, which previously only had Pub Street and hotel amenities to offer to travellers from around the world. It is a welcomed addition to the streetscape for travellers who seek to have an experience with a blend of local culture and cosmopolitan offerings.

Siem Reap has experienced a major transformation from a laid-back town into a bustling travel destination. The Heritage Walk has great potential and is poised to add to the fun and option of activities for both locals and international travellers.
