I visited here after going to the Central Market. Stay with the Central Market. The Russian Market has tiny alleyways between the stalls and is quite claustrophobic. You will be a bit disappointed with the stuff especially if you've been to the Central Market.

I didn't find many bargains to be had at the Russian Markets. I found the markets in Siem Reap to be much better value & variety.

Need last minute souvenirs or gifts? This is the place. The locals are very fun to bargain with and really appreciate the business. Typical market-narrow walkways, very hot, and more scarves than you can count.

I was so thrilled to find a place where they sell good quality shorts and pants for very low prices. Don't be shy and fit your clothes in public. I found two fake shorts for a total of 13 USD. Bargain! Note: they sell so many things there from building equipment to cashew nuts. I'm sure you will find something!

The Russian market is especially unique in that it offers top line products for especially decent prices (though it may be important to keep in mind that such products may contain defects). Regardless of this, foreigners visiting Cambodia should truly consider visiting this site at least once, as it also happens to offer unique Cambodian products and artifacts on the... More

During one of the hot days in Phnom Penh, it's not too comfortable to slander around the Russian Market as it's crowded and non-airconditioned. I don't like all the replica stuff they're selling, but do like the technical stuff and I really love the old woman selling dried fruits and peanuts! She lets you taste everything she has and she's... More

Much better markets are in other areas. This place was dull and had a lot of the same things in each shop.

The Russian Market is very similar to most large Asian market places. You will not get hounded like in Thailand or Vietnam though. Not sure if the Cambodian people are just so damn friendly or the concept of hounding tourists to buy stuff they don't want hasn't reached the country yet. Either way, hopefully it stays like this for a... More

Great but overwhelming. Get there early. It gets hot and humid. It was astounding how often we got offered the special lucky first customer price only to walk away and get an even better one. Haggle, there are more stalls selling the same thing further along. Except for stall 1008. Get quality clothing made. I took my favourite item of... More

The market is large in size, very similar to all other markets we have visited while in SE Asia, nice to see that the locals use this market and a sight to see when they barter!
