The Russian Market is stall after stall of Asian style shopping. We went at the end of the day and found good prices since vendors were eager to make their last sale of the day. Closing is near 5pm so visit there around that time for the best prices.

A great place to get all the random gifts to take home. Otherwise, it's just like all the other markets but slightly bigger and better. Personally, I liked Central Market better - seemed slightly less crazy than Russian Markets. There's also great food at the food section.

Fun to shop and eat at these markets. Get your nails done for $1. Get something repaired, sewed up for about the same. Buy a bag or backpack, some new clothes, etc. Whatever you want or need, you will find it here. I highly recommend this market, if you have a chance to go, it is a little less touristy... More

Knickknack & souvenir galore. Makes for a great fist time shopping to take back home . Bags. Silver jewellery, clothes & a fresh market to buy fish & vegetables too . You can spend couple of hours browsing if nothing else .

The Russian market, about two miles from the genocide museum is a very good place for shopping at bargain price. Mostly clothing is quite inexpensive compared to US markets. Its a small place but good for bargain.Most of the branded items and non branded items too are on sale. Not to be missed when in town.

A mix of touristy and authentic which was perfect for a tourist like me. Some great deals to be had at the end of my trip after first visiting at the beginning. Practice your haggling skills and always do it with a smile.

Personally preferred the Central markets for shopping. This place was busier than the central markets (where I spent around $50 but didn't spend a cent here). There were a lot of kids clothes, silver jewellery/ornaments and wooden carvings. If I came back to Phnom Penh I'd probably just go to the central markets again.

This place presents the browser with a menagerie of sights and smells to guarantee a very definite reaction. One will either love the place or hate it. For me, while I found the marketplace interesting enough to walk through briefly, its malodorous reality just about caused asphyxiation within minutes of my navigating its myriad isles of Langerhans. Thankfully, being alone,... More

This market is pretty big and has a variety of stuff. Probably the best place to go to buy any souvenirs. Its only about 1.5 kilometers from S-21 and $2 by tuk tuk. There are many wood craft and paintings shops on the periphery. Its worth a visit.

I'm a photographer and this market is great for photography. And I liked this one a lot more than the Central market
