Literally, if you wanted everything under one roof, you could find it here. From the freshest vegetables, fruit and meat to electronic and hardwarez to art shopping, you will get it all. Just be prepared to drive a hard bargain, in a noisy and relatively hot congested environment!

This market is hot, dark, sometimes pungent, but not to be missed on a visit to Phnom Penh. Very nice tourist souvenirs, some local items too. On site tailors for minor adjustments. Overall a good experience. The hotter it is the better for bargaining.

I visited this place in search of the rumoured brand name clothes and shoes at rock-bottom prices. I couldn't find any of these. One merchant told me that the brand name stuff sold in the market is imitation and the only genuine stuff is from some Cambodian brand "CAT". It's very hot inside the market. I don't know how the...

We visited this famous market in Phnom Penh. Very crowded. Very large. Local stuff to buy, but not very distinctive or unusual. Many locals buy and eat here. We did not really buy anything of substance. Lots of fakes, knock offs, and low priced goods. Can negotiate with the sellers. Perhaps, I am not a big shopper so I have... More

I went for the sake of going. I didn't buy anything. Super cramped and hot but if you're after a bargain you will find one here. Make sure you bring you negotiation skills

Good place to buy clothes and silk stuff. Have to negotiate the price!! It could be another fun if i like it ^^. Bought almost 20 pieces of cushion covers made by silk. Just pay 40dollars for all. Amazing price.

Massive markets that sell everything. Very very hot inside and floor is very uneven with pavers and gutters running through it. The food area sells stuff that I had no idea what it was. There is a great ice coffee stall in the main food area. Hundreds of souvenir sellers. My favourite was a soap shop that was air conditioned,... More

The Russian Market in Phnom Penh is as Russian is as Stanley Market in Hong Kong is Saint Lucian. It is just an idiosyncrasy of the late 1980s that 'Phsar Toul Tum Poung', the Cambodian name for the market, got hijacked and informally nicknamed. A large contingent of Russian expatriates lived in South Phnom Penh at the time and most... More
