Packed full of interesting goodies!

This market place is really jam packed with everything from food to clothes to car parts. Well worth a look around and a good place to practice your bartering!

You need somewhere to buy your souveirs, and this is probably as good a place as any. It is massive, though, so unless you want to spend hours there, you need to just go down a couple of isles and then quit!

This big Russian Market is a perfect place for shopping souvenir items. A bit far from the city center but a good way to visit different places in Phnom Penh. It is near the residential area so expect a bit of heavy traffic when getting in.

Unless you need some bad quality of stuff, there is nothing to do. Even fruits are more expensive comparing to prices in the streets.

Well, this has cheap Chinese stuff. Nothing that I would like to buy. A waste of time. Unless, you have an emergency like yr suitcase didn't arrive and you don't want to spend too much money.

Great market for gifts and souvenirs. But there are also shops that are run by NGOs that support local Cambodian women and children and also a shop that supports Cambodians living with HIV/AIDS. Yes, these items are more expensive, but it is wonderful to support these important causes. Also, It is VERY hot inside the market! We would have stayed... More

The Russian Market is an extensive complex of shops and market stalls in Phnom Penh. It radiates the well known confusion and chaos of a serious Far East market, when approaching the complex from the street. When you found a aisle to enter the market, you can follow a real maze of corridors between vending areas and stalls. Really everything... More

lots of stuff to buy, slightly stifling in the narrow aisles. The fresh produce, fish and meat section is a real eye opener for townies but is part of life and the way of life in Cambodia. Great juice bar on the street facing the markets.

I've been all over Asia and this was horrible, it's really tiny alleys inside this undercover market with dirty floors and the smells are awful. I think this is more for locals. struggled to find men's clothes. There were some stalls for women but couldn't wait to get out of there. You can barely move in some parts.
