This is a market for locals. Selling food, clothes and other basics. Other than looking at the strange/unusual produce there’s nothing much here for tourists.

This is where locals go to shop. Not tourist trinkets and souvenirs. There are all the things you need to live on. Meat, fish, vegetables. At a few spots, the smell was a little strong. You might not want to wear sandals, the water was...More

Very disappointing local market, packed with local vendors and shoppers, not for someone that hates crowds, nothing really interesting to buy.

Having seen other Cambodian markets we thought this would be worth a visit. As another reviewer wrote, this place is hot and stuffy. Just as important to note was that none of junk (a lot made in China) was appealing. None of the 34 people...More

It’s the most unorganised market I’ve been to in South East Asia thus far but it’s huge and crowded with locals. It’s a combination of wet market and dry market (selling clothes and fabrics) with some food stalls (which I doubt the hygiene). Anyway it’s...More

Phsar Leu, also known as "Upper Market" in English has been around Sihanoukville for a long long time. It is actually a wet market and you usually can get pretty decent prices for seafood products here. However, since the influx of Chinese into Sihanoukville, the...More

Compared to Benh Tanh market in HCMC, this is way under maintained and unorganised at all. You can bargain for those Cambodian singlets at $2/each.. I guess that's what tourists would buy! XD Other clothing is very expensive and they are not open for any...More
