Try bargaining in Khmer! It works :-D

Be ready to bargain. Some of the stalls are quite ridiculous with how much they think they can make out of foreigners. Try learning to count in Khmer... when I practised my... read more

I never understand why people flock to these markets full of tat, but in this case do yourself a favour and walk round any corner. This is the main shopping district of Phnom Penh and it's amazing! One entire street was vendors with second-hand power tools; another is all scooters. And so on. The people are friendly and I felt... More

Be ready to bargain. Some of the stalls are quite ridiculous with how much they think they can make out of foreigners. Try learning to count in Khmer... when I practised my numbers on them they were more willing to bargain and they were really friendly after that. It's a bit dark, crowded and hot, but if you're tourist it'a... More

Wide array of items, haggling is a must and watch for pickpockets. Recommend getting there in the morning as the heat, people and food make for an interesting odor in the afternoon.

I was spending time shopping around Toul Tum Pung market. Many kind of goods can be found with the low price , every purchase must be bargain to get more save with hight quality even the second hand product. Also is the good place for souvenirs or dvd movies.

If you would like to shop for souvenirs, go to the more organised Central Market. The Russian market is a crammed, hot, disorganised version of the Central Market. You can get literally lost looking for that particular something special there, it is like a maze of treasure trove. Visit the market for its atmosphere and to experience how locals shop.... More

This market was the only local market we visited in PP, the meat department was radical! Cool experience, able to reason about the prices as well, other than that same ol' junk as sold in all local stores.

This market is similar to the central market of phnom penh. We have been there for about one hour. We enjoyed good food and the typical atmosphere. One has to see all least one of phnom penh's markets.

The food in the centre is pretty good and cheap, $1.50 for a meal. The market gets hoy during the day, so go in the morning. Expect to get lost walking around the maze of shops!
