As far as shopping goes, it's pretty much the same generic Cambodia t-shirts and knick knacks that you can get at other markets. This market has almost everyyyything, I even passed by a section which sold spare parts for vehicles I think. Do bargain as lots of tourists come by the market. Do visit for the great iced coffee though... More

Wasn't anything special with it, just another market with loads of clothes and stuff to buy. No real charm, like other markets usually have.

The Russian market is cool no doubt. Just don't spend a ton of money or time to get there. It's neat to see once and if you're close by go in for a bit. If you'd like to buy some souvenirs, again, good place to go. However, it isn't a place that you'll want to hang out for long. Just... More

Great market. Was there a cooler day so it was not to bad. You will find anything here from souveniers to fruit to tools (should you need it). Don't miss the central food court. Cheap food and great coffee. The salespeople are not to harrasing but be prepared to haggle.

This is one of the best places to go if you need to top up on travel clothes, enjoy local cuisine or buy something to remember your time in Cambodia. Be prepared to haggle though and even walk a way at times as vendors aren't willing to just let you have the best price for no effort.

Visited during our tour of the City. Crowded, sauna like conditions inside, crammed with merchandise; there is something for nearly everybody - clothing, souvenirs, handicrafts. There is also the food and wet markets to peruse if interested. Tourists and locals vie for room in the tight walkways, hardly room to move and it would be a nightmare in emergency. A... More

Worth a visit - U would get a tuk tuk as quiet a distance unless you want to walk - Lots of nice bits to purchase ensure you barter as you could get things for half the price and maybe more.

If you want to get a souvenir, a shirt, a knock-off brand-name purse, cigarettes, fish, handicrafts, meat, curios, well, just about anything, you come to the Russian Market. It got it’s name because during the 1980’s a large number of expats, predominately Russians, shopped in the area. The place is a MAZE with extremely narrow aisles snaking between booth after...

The Russian market was amazing. Different smells, nice stuff to buy. Try to bargain its part of their culture. It's a big market. Would recommend it for souvenirs.

It was great to find chia seeds that are very cheap! I would love to go back there just to buy more!
