Not that special

We came here as we were going to S21 on the same day and the two places were quite close- we actually walked between the two taking about 15mins. We had been to Central market... read more

We came here as we were going to S21 on the same day and the two places were quite close- we actually walked between the two taking about 15mins. We had been to Central market earlier in the day and were saving our spending for the Russian market as we had read that things were cheaper here. We were quite... More

I think i was expecting a bit more of it, but it is just an average market. Thought when we visited it was surprisingly quiet there. Hard to say if there really is original brand clothes or is it all just a knock off. There are also shops outside the market area, where at least we managed to find some... More

This pretty much reminded me of every outdoor market I've ever been to around the world. The same generic souvenirs, the same knock off sunglasses and clothing. It's worth stopping by if you have some free time but there's really nothing special about it.

It's just like the market in the rest of south east asian cities so many people, too many things to look at but they're all the same things everywhere. Price was also quite expensive compare to saigon or bangkok. Didn't find anything interesting to get except to stop and buy some drinks.

The Russian market in Phmom Penh is nothing like other markets that you can find in South East Asia. It is rather small, still good if you need to buy some souvenirs but the place is not that exceptional. If you are looking for street food, careful not to go there in the middle of the afternoom as you will... More

Amazing market. All under cover but busy and hot so go there early in the morning. So much to see from clothes, food, clothes, household to a entire wrecking yard of bike and scooter parts. So much to see in such a small area. It does get very hot and crowded so go early...opens at 8am. Enjoy.

I was very disappointed by this. As markets round the world go, this is poor effort and I can see nothing to commend it. There was little worth buying, what there was was overpriced and the plethora of bothersome tuc tuc drivers wishing to whisk you away made it difficult to shop anyway.

If you have been to other SE Asia markets then this is nothing different , the stuff there is also no different. The market is quiet cramped and can be clostrophobic and hence gets very very hot.

Call me jaded (after my fourth visit to the Russian Market) but everything has a sameness to it after a while. Still, if you've not been to Asia before and you're looking for fun, cheap souvenirs and reasonable quality "knock offs" - the Russian Market is fun. Sadly, as Cambodia develops, so too does the pick-pocket culture, so while in... More

We went to both markets the Russian and the Central Market but we found the Russian Market a better place to look for hand crafted items. go earlier in the day as it gets pretty hot as the day wears on.
