A myriad of stalls selling everything imaginable ; clothes , " antiques" , hardware , shoes , lightshades , art , souvineers. The large food section was fascinating , much of the food very fresh ( ie still squirming ) and a vast variety. The rows of stalls are narrow and very crowded so take your time. Clothes were cheap...

Your trip to the Russian Market will never be complete without a taste of the 'Best Iced Coffee in Phnom Penh', located in the centre of the market. You can't miss it, almost every tourist patronises that coffee stall when they visit this place. There's also loads of beautiful tea-ware up for sale, but they are a little expensive. House... More

Too many shops and really small alleyways inside. Makes it hard to try and look at stuff as people are always walking up and down. Keep your belongings close to you. There are alot of branded goods and sellers are very unwilling to bargain.

Only had three quarters hour to look around and wish we had more. Merchandise looked above average being sold and there was no haggling or pressure to buy as in other Asian markets. It was good to just browse around.

We still haven't finished unwrapping all the things we bought here: little wire sculptures, gadgets, puzzles out of wood, shirts etc!

Standard Asian market like so many others, go at the end of your trip to get all your bargain Tshirts and souvenirs. Or go at the start so you get a feel for prices before shopping in 'touristy' shops. Obviously haggling is the key to getting a bargain, never pay the first price quoted but remember to keep it in...

The Russian Market in Phnom Penh is the must stop place for anyone visiting who wants to look for souvenirs of some sort. Even if you don't buy anything, its such an experience to walk around the twisting corridors in search of something. You must bargain to try to get a decent price and that's part of the experience. However,... More

I basically am never the shopping person. I let my sister do all the dirty work and just provide my final inputs if asked. But shopping in the Russian market was an interestingly good experience. I loved the artifacts sold. I especially enjoyed the bargaining part. We learnt the trick of the trade and would bargain for 20% of the... More

Didn't buy a thing ... But it was interesting. The heat probably had something to do with our sealed pockets! But we have a long trip ahead of us, and buying in China was on our minds. Lots of clothing, curios, even hardware, and meat, and fish, and spices! Great mixture! And the vendors didn't hassle you like they do... More
