If you can handle the heated and sweaty environment come down to this excellent market place to snag some real bargains!!! I highly recommend it if you want to get some quality products are cheap as chips prices.

Even the vendors here are happy to give you tips about bargaining. Excellent range and prices on home wares, art work and DVDs.

nothing here of note, just stick to eating and drinking on the waterfront. the location, clothes, trinkets, watches etc are a waste of time.

Traditional old wet market offering lots of souvenirs and dry food. Stuffy place and bargain only if you have intention to buy.

I spent there a full rainy afternoon shopping but at night, when the market closes, right beside in a small square, they open plenty of street restaurants with sitting facilities. I had amazing typical food and went there several times.

We arrived late in the afternoon when the crowds had gone, locals were arriving to enjoy street food suppers outside the market. Inside the market was not too stuffy as no longer crowded - after an emotional morning at the Killing Fields and the Genocide Museum and a sweltering afternoon at the Royal Palace; a bit of retail haggling is...

This is the alternative to the Central Market in Phnom Penh. Prices here are slightly lower than those at the Central Market and you could get most of the souvenirs and stuff here.

I loved the vibe of Russian Market. It was great fun! Very hot and sweaty, so come prepared with water, and a fan! It's literally a rabbit warren inside, but you won't get lost, and everything leads to an exit. Great market for tshirts, pants, sundresses, shoes, bags and everything else you could wish for.

Great market.. can be really hot.. sellers are not too pushy and prices are good with some bargaining. Don't miss the yummy food.. although sitting there to eat is not a cool place! Plenty of things on offer from hammocks to tshirts to silver. Lots of gift possibilities.

If you were a shopper (we are not) I am sure you would love this crowded jumble of stalls. You can get anything from small nick nacks to automotive repairs to clothing made. There are also food stalls and opportunities to buy meat and veggies. We were warned to be on the lookout for thieves.
