Very large market

This market is very busy and ~I woulds suggest that you hold on to your purse. There are pick pockets.

We didn't really go for the market, we went to see the odd looking building. Once inside we looked up and it was impressive took some photos and actually walked around the market,we even bought a load of stuff.

This market was much cleaner than I expected. The high ceilings made the place cooler too. I bought a lot of stuff including jewellery. This is a 'must do' activity when visiting Phnom Penh.

the market is great for a visit or to buy stuff (anything). More expensive than the locals markets and the smaller community markets but definitely worth a visit

From making Rx eyeglasses on the spot to tons of jeweler. We didn't even see it all but it was clean and the vendors were not grabby, which we appreciated. It's also indoors which can be nice when very hot. Our friend had 2 pairs of Rx sunglasses made for a reasonable price and they were delivered the same evening... More

Extremely well laid out market - one of the best we visited in 4 weeks. There is everything to see and buy. Safe for visitors, who are sensible. If trying clothes sizes may be a bit different from Europe or US

And not all of it touristy. If you like markets, this one is large and has a lot to choose from. Always negotiate! The sellers are not too pushy which is nice.

You would enjoy the place if you want to shop for jewellery. Other than that, this place doesn't offer much.
