We visited this market having previously visited the Russian Market and the markets in Siem Reap. This may well have jaded my opinion. It is much more spacious than these and is housed in a lovely Art Deco type building and it is a local's market too - that part I enjoyed, but I found it lacked the atmosphere of some local markets.
There are tourist items and souvenirs, but I did not find as much selection as at the Russian Market, which sells EVERYTHING from motor cycle parts, great local food stalls and loads of souvenirs - you never know what is round the next corner! We returned to the the Russian Market where we enjoyed several hours absorbing the atmosphere and bargaining with the friendly Cambodian stall-holders.
