Very busy and confusing! I didn't stay inside for long because it was dark and the passages were small and I felt like I'd get lost. Stayed outside and bought fruit from the stalls - fair prices and not much difference for me compared to locals which is unusual for a touristy place.

We visited this market in the afternoon. There was lots of stalls selling a variety of things including clothes and souvenirs. Prices were very reasonable and they were happy to bargain with you. Got some nice iced coffee inside the market too which was refreshing in the heat.

I was surprised by this market, looks crazy from the outside but was very interesting inside. Quite good for cheap clothing - quite a bit of h&m and mango clothes. I would definitely have a wander round. Some good souvenirs too. Closes at 5 so give yourself a good hour.

I even do not say , crowdy, only dumpy. Very narrow passes, everything: rumours, eating, chating happens here. Amazing atmosphere, good prices on food as well.

Have visited many similar markets in South East Asia (Thailand and Vietnam) and this is the most disappointing in terms of goods on offer and general ambience. Temperature inside too unpleasant to make this an enjoyable place to shop.

The markets were fun; not huge and not super cheap but enough stuff to keep you interested and I did pick up a few things at a reasonable price. After shopping, we wandered around to walk and grab a slice of pizza and a drink. Would recommend to most as worth a visit.

One's visit to Cambodia would never be complete without going shopping in the popular Russian market. This is an ideal place to buy souvenirs and branded goods in the country. Its a great experience buying presents for friends and relatives at home. Where in the world you can find items like backpacks, polo shirts, home decors etc at half an... More

This was the best market that I went to whilst in Phnom Penh. On the ground floor your senses are filled with the smells of foodstuffs. Upstairs you can find cheap clothing.

There is a treasure trove of stuff in this market! Cambodia's garment industry's clothing that doesn't go overseas is sold here and you can get some amazing brand name bargains for much lower prices. Pots, pans, make-up, rice paper rubbings, sitting mats, toys, souvenirs, you name it, the Russian Market has it! It's probably the best market for variety rivalling... More

Lots of stalls quite a few just selling clothing and stuff that was not too interesting but a few with some more interesting articles for sale. It was quite hot and stuffy though (enough for me to cut short my visit) In short worth a visit but do not allocate hours to it.
