It is a traditional style market that is smelly, stuffy, and hasn't been updated in years. I really like these old-style markets that aren't meant for regular tourists. You can buy spices, herbs, sugar, and coffee for super cheap. Almost anything you'll want to buy will cost around $2. Their coffee is very good too, a huge bag for only... More

Psar Chas used to be a locals market. You can still find the original Psar Chas, but there is also a tourist Psar Chas. Anyway, always bargain, it is worth it. You can find almost everything here, but clothes , except t-shirts, that fit to westerners. I bought t-shirts, candy, fruits, dried fruits, a chinese kitchen knife made in S-... More

Siem reap has other markets with cheaper items where locals actually go shopping. This is the touristic stuff, but it's ok for a quick visit.

Visit Siem Reap Old Market was one of my best experiences during my trip through Thailand and Cambodia. There is no almost English speakers sellers and it's so funny go in there, The women's of the vegetables section laugh a lot with me, was magical just walk in there. I become crazy and I buy a lot of things, some... More

Fresh meats, ice and seamstresses, silks in great stacks, smiling folk will follow your every interested glance, don't let it get under your skin, laugh with them, admire their children and haggle as hard as you are able- you'll be good at it by day three!

A market is a good place to capture a sense of the local culture, their lifestyles, and cuisine, witnessing the range of fruits, vegetables, meats, spices (eg. amok), sausages, etc... Nearby, they have mobile trolleys selling snacks, drinks, cut fruits, etc... but the most appalling vendor is one selling fried exotic insects like crispy crickets, huge black spider, worms, etc.......

As with all markets in SEA countries, markets are the place to get local souvenirs at a good bargain - IF you are good at bargaining. This place is no different, it is a square divided into several sections where you can get fresh food, household items and touristy items. For a start, opening prices are different every day and...

It's a great market in a managing size, unlike some in other big cities where it's easy to get lost. The fresh food area is a sight to see with lots of fresh fish and other items being prepared for sale. The rest of the stalls have the usual tourist items with a large section. Always be ready to bargain... More

This is your average souvenir market with the same items for sale at every stall. Bargaining is up to you, but usually they start to bring down the price before you even say you want it. Some parts of the market has a strong fish smell. The markets in Phnom Penh are more diverse and contain the same clothes/ souvenirs.... More

It was nice visiting this area. It's right beside the Night market which attracted many tourists in night time. I wandered around just for a short time and bought some various interesting types of souvenirs. I even got a bottle of palm wine which was a present for my mom to celebrate with her friends in a casual party, and... More
