“For local cambodian tidbits and cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Buy silver or wooden carvings(usually 10-12usd for mid sized stuff) or just a plain t shirt (2 usd each). Look at the local wet markets if u have never seen asian markets before. Buy fresh flowers for a special someone. Do what u want...its the one place in cambodia where u can find most things u want. I had a Cambodian friend with me who also guided me thru some cambodian local cuisine- try at your own risk. :)

“A bit sterile as markets go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

..but a very good place to go anyway. Vendors are happy to bargain here so sharpen up your skills and you can get a good deal. All sorts of shops from home-wares to fresh flowers to jewellery.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

It's a great building and landmark but the market is so-so. I guess it depends on what you want. I do my grocery shopping there and I am always charged more than other markets.
