Good place for local food and clothes

It was easy to find this market where I enjoyed local foods. For clothes, I suggest to bargain 2/3 discount. You can save a little money with large quantity. I am not sure about... read more

This is no amazing market. You can bargain what you want, you will probably find almost anything here. It smells bad at some places.

It is a very nice, clean market which sells a variety of things. The jewellery and sunglasses are very nice but shoes, clocks, wallets, t-shirts, baggy pants and etc can be found there. Obviously, haggle a bit with the shopkeepers so you aren't completely ripped off!

My wife and I visited the market during some free time away from our tour group. There's a lot for sale here from fish and vegetables to clothing, souvenirs and lots of jewelry. Remember to bargain for anything you are interested in.

The building is quite stunning from outside, but once inside it is a wonder that you find your way out. Five wings of the building itself with a central hub featuring enough glittery jewelry to blind you, with stalls spilling out along the alleys between the five wings. Deja vu occurs again and again, in part because you end up... More

Interesting insight into Cambodian life. 10% of stalls close for Chinese new year. Stalls range from clothes/jewellery/rucksacks to more clothes and buttock electronics.

If you like shopping and markets this is a pretty good stop. The building is nice and compared the other markets this one is significantly cleaner and more open and organized. They have just about everything. The downsides are that it doesn't really offer the fun parts of market shopping in Asia; the prices are honestly outlandish and many places... More

Fun market to walk around. There's eye glasses stalls, they can test your current glasses on a machine, so no eye test, but great for a second pair, or if you know your prescription hasn't changed, then they make them in an hour at a fraction of UK prices. Also good for jewellery. Not so huge that it's overwhelming, but... More

Drop by, bargain for some trinkets, have some $0.75 noodle soup, and see the pretty building it's housed in. It's a fun way to spend a few hours, though not, in my opinion, a "must see."
