We visited in a cool day, and yet the market felt stifling - probably due to bad ventilation. There is very little natural sunlight within the market, which made it quite dark. Many of the stalls sold similar items as well, which gave even lesser incentive to visit all of them. Overall, a poor experience which we would definitely not... More

This market probaly has everthing you could ever want. It is very crowded with narrow aisles but the vendors are quite willing to bargain. It can get very hot inside so maybe early morning or late in the day.

I did a quick wiz around the this market, I found the items cheap, souveniers on offer I picked up another pair of hippy pants, Haggling was OK, not aggressive like I found in souks stuffy, poor air circulation inside though

The famous Russian Market in Phnom Penh certainly is large. With mainly touristic items on sale. I guess there are some items you'll find interesting but so much is repetitive and some of the more interesting items are made of heavy metal which can cause overweight problems on flights. Do bargain and be prepared to walk.

A great day out but go in morning as it gets very hot in the cramped conditions. Be sure to visit the food market part, great pic opportunities but only for the hygienically adventurous and the smell might make you heave!!

I lived in Phnom Penh for 5 months and I have been to all of the markets countless times. This is easily the best one. Yes, it is VERY confusing to find your way around at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's great. Best prices and it has more unique products. Definitely barter and don't be... More

Like most markets in Cambodia or Vietnam,the Russian market is well worth a visit for the experience of seeing how those persons perhaps not as privileged as ourselves,go about their daily lives trying to earn a crust. Bartering is essential in many of these markets on items that do not have a fixed price on them, and most do not,and... More

As this market has a very low ceiling covered with zinc, this place can be very hot to visit, especially during the afternoon. Nevertheless, this little market has lots of things to purchase, from DVDs to clothes to gemstones, to souvenirs, you can find some really good stuffs at a very reasonable price. Remember to bargain and if you are... More
