I don't mind the odd banter and haggle with stall holders, but as soon as you walk in and they are constantly "please sir, buy something" all saying the same thing so you can't even look in peace, I'm not prepared to even look. But to be honest I don't think I missed anything, there are no stalls there that... More

Looked for Mrs. Pisey at Stall/Shop Number 14 who had been recommended on Trip Advisor. She wasnt open so the woman at stall 13 offered to help me. She was very nice but as I later determined was not an honest trader. I spent well on some "silk" fabric which was later discoveredto be polyester. My lesson - do a... More

Its a great place if you wanna buy anything u might not need to just snapping away with a camera. Its buzzing with activity and a great place to hone in on your haggeling skills. But lets face it $2 is more or less equivalent to a quid who needs to haggel over a quid!!! Have fun and enjoy

Of course it is fulfilled by tourists everyday, but unlike previous comments i've read, that's the place I got the best deals on paints, clothes and fishes. Since I've travelled a lot in Asia, I strongly recommend you to offer the quarter of the initial price and stick to it!

This is typical of large markets of the region and contains a variety of souvenirs, clothes and food. The silver was reasonably priced and the silk scarves were gorgeous. One note: while the tut-tuts in Siem Reap are perfectly safe to take, some may convince you to go to "a better market" which is actually a factory store. If the... More

You must have a good bargain skill as these stallholders were very tough at times n cunning. Tourists have taught them a lot, so they are clever now to be at par when bargaining in progress. Nevertheless, it's worth to buy items that were handmade by the Cambodians as the art was wonderful.

Most of the souvenir shops sell goods with higher price than in Night market, paticularly those are opposite the market, super expensive (twice the price in night market). Food & spices shops are ok. Not a good place to shop.

This is a lovely, old-fashioned Asian market filled with the usual tourist kitsch, clothing, shoes, jewellery, fresh fish, sausages, dried meat, spices, rice, hardware, crockery, and other household products. Bargain hard! Try to get there when it first opens (10-ish am) as the stallholders have a culture of the first sale of the day being lucky (hence being more amenable... More

It would possibly be a good experience giving the old market some time, if this is your first SEA market experience, otherwise the multi sensory experience would already be all too familiar to you. Life at the market doesn't just stop at the boundaries of the market, riding by you can feel that life pulsating, jumping out at you as... More
