A visit to the Russian Market is a great experience with a myriad of items to choose from. I visited the market towards the end of my stay in Phnom Penh with a mission to buy things to take home to my loved ones. We hit the markets early in the day so it wasn't too hot or crowded then... More

There are several markets in and around Phnom Penh. I found this the best one for deals and for tourist items. Trying to find the right gift for someone back in your home country, this is the place to go. Wander the market before striking up that deal. Volume purchases guarantee a decent price. If your hungry there are places... More

This market caters for everyone - souvenirs, accessories, clothes and anything else you can think of. Would be a good idea to check here before shopping elsewhere if you want to take presents home with you. Prices are slightly higher than other markets but you can always bargain as there are many traders and many customers. Downside is market is... More

As a friend of many locals, I realise this is mostly tourist heaven, but I love that I can wander round past USB sticks and CDs to clothes of many varieties, spa and smellies shops, traditional wooden jigsaws and plates and coaster, through into hardware stores, motorbike parts sellers and managed to find a tube of super glue. Never braved... More

the market seems a bit daunting when you first enter with small passages, lots of stalls and can be quite hot inside. However the people are charming and don't hassle you. Lots of different stalls from clothes, t shirts, paintings, jewellery, motor bike parts, fruit and vegetables, lamps shades, butchers!!, fish and bags. Good quality tourist options and well worth...

Worth a look. Plenty of souvenirs from wood carvings to jewellery to clothes and food all very good prices (remember to barter) good way to kill a few hours. You may get lost in the maze of stalls

2.5 USD by tuktuk from Sisowath Quay or backpacker area, that is a big market with variety of goods and Cambodia-symbolic souvenirs. The food is acceptable but Remember to bargain any TIME and PLACE you visit. Some of those you can cut half, or 2/3 is OK.

The Russian Market offers all things the tourist heart may desire. Local experience in sense of veggies, meat and fish ... while also being able to load up on souvenirs. Take the time and interact with the locals, not only will they give you a better price but you will also make new friends. I sat in Sophyas shop for... More

This a little way out from the city centre, great shopping and no-one in your face, they can make a suit for you overnight, good for bartering and value.

This market has lots of clothes, jewelry and fresh produce - fish, meat, fruit, vegetables and dry goods. They were beautifully presented and fresh. We bought Kampot pepper, elephant pants, silk blouse, and 2 tee shirts all at a cost of $5 per item. We also found a replacement for my sapphire necklace that was stolen 25 years ago. The... More
