From my experience central is the best. night Market nothing much to see. just local stalls selling food and clothing. however, Russian market you can buy clothing, electrical stuff, jewellery, etc. However it is further away than central market. nothing much to...

There's a much better variety of souvenirs and trinkets to browse and buy in the Russian Market than the night market, so make a visit if you're after a couple of hours of wandering, browsing and the odd bit of haggling.

The Russian market is a one-stop shop for food, groceries, household items, stationery and souvenirs- but they also have an extensive set of stalls for motoring accessories and repair (since motorbikes, vespas and scooters are so popular here, this is pretty useful). We'd recommend going there relatively early in the morning while it's still cool(ish) and there aren't too many... More

The ORussey market on street 182 is far more interesting, almost no tourists and unlikely you'll be ripped off here. Russian Market sucks.

Fruit and veg, meat, fish, hot lunch, clothes, etc. When my wife and I lived in Phnom Penh, this is where we bought most of our fruit and veg. It is cleaner and more prosperous looking that it was 20 years ago, but only a bit. One thing that has improved is the silk. On our previous visits, it was... More

As an Asian, this market is nothing special. It's just like any other asian markets that we see everyday. However, it might be an interesting place for non-Asian tourists to see, how local people interact.

Went early on a cool morning. We could see that by lunchtime it would be smelly and hot. Near the fast food area it was already pretty warm and with the meat stalls near by,,,, It has food sections, car parts, bike part, electric parts, tourist tat, clothes, DVDs shoes, you can't help but be fascinated. Work out exactly where... More

It's an excellent place to shop from with variety of stuff to buy from as gifts. If you are a shopping addict or even a normal person then this a must cost place. Tips: Barging and Bargain is the key to this market If they ask for 10 then go for one third the price like 3$ then agree and... More

Unless you happen to be staying nearby I really wouldn't bother making a trip to this market. It is no different than all the other Asian markets but also unbearably hot once you are inside. We usually love spending a couple of hours or so in markets but barely managed an hour in this one. Also the heat and the... More

You can find everything from great paintings to beautiful scarves to motorcycle parts in this market. Come prepared with lots of water bottles (it's hot and sweaty) and be ready to bargain. Lots of fun and lots to explore!
