If this is your first Asean tour, then you will get excited with the cheap home decor stuff at this market. Otherwise it is just another market you see like the ones in Bangkok and Vietnam. You find factory rejects for big brands like H&M, Gap (lots of it), but it is a good place to grab those touristy Cambodia... More

Very cheap and low quality products. Many nice items to find, DVDs, tools, motorbike parts, local and imported dishes, clothes, pillows, table runners, bags, accessories, but not high quality.

It was fun shopping at Russian market. If you are good at bargaining, this is one of the best places in Phnom Penh. I bought lovely earrings, harem pants, spoons and forks made of coconut shell, beautiful table mats and cushions.

Great smallish market that covers nearly everything you can want. Can get hot in the small undercover alleyways in the afternoon, so suggest you go in the mornings

We really enjoyed the Russian markets, it was colourful, fun and the haggling was much more enjoyable. It pretty much had the same stuff as the Central markets however their starting prices were much more reasonable. We spent about 2 hours there happily wandering and purchased a cute elephant bag and of course an elephant! Tourist tip, an elephant with... More

A place to buy Cambodia arts and handicrafts. Cheap but you have to negotiate with the seller. Happy hunting!! p/s: visited in 2005

As markets go in Cambodia this would have to be one of the best! Heaps and heaps to look at, make sure you bargain the price down, with very little effort I managed to get most things for half the price at which they started. Narrow isles with packed stores. Every tuk tuk driver knows how to get there. This... More

If you're planning to go here and spend a lot of time there then stop reading my review for everyone else my two cents for this place is , AVOID. rust me you will not find anything worth spending. If you are looking for cambodian silk this is NOT the place.
