A very large market situated in the centre of town. Many stalls inside and out selling all you could want. Spend a couple of hours wandering around enjoying the sights, sounds and smells. Great place to get cheap food.

Nothing special. You'll find everything you'd find in any market in SE Asia. It's cramped, dark and smelly. Spend your time doing something else. Very unimpressed.

The Phsar Nath Market offers a typical Asian market yet it is fun to walk around and see fruits, household items and jewelry. After going around, there are food shops around the area and riverside if you are done in the market.

Located near the river, this market looks different during the day. Vendors and their merchandises are gone. I tried their day market where I bought several items for $1 each: 20 pieces of mask (protection against very dusty environment), bag of fried bananas/potatoes, fresh bananas,...More
