Rose Apple Square was excited to be one of the sponsors for the 26th Annual Angkor Wat International Half Marathon. Due to COVID restrictions, the event was pushed back from its traditional date at the beginning of December to Sunday, January 2nd. This year’s event was also more intimate with only 2,500 runners competing in 3, 5, 10, and 21KM divisions. Rose Apple Square staff along with Pointer Real Estate were there to congratulate finishers and handing out custom Rose Apple Square red towels, as well as the local fruit that inspired the project’s name.
Walking through the town you could tell that Siem Reap city was beginning to emerge from its cocoon, with most of the road infrastructure, sidewalk, and other public works being nearly finished. The nightlife center of Pub Street is also coming back to life, with visitors celebrating Friday night for the New Year’s and people out and about walking throughout the city over the weekend. We look forward to 2022 as Siem Reap continues to make a comeback and the race will start to return to the large event it is known for.
