    This was a first day activity for our group. Something about the bustling of patrons and just immense amount of activity and energy is really cool to see. I think the food market portion is probably the most interesting to walk around since this is where you can find locals selling and buying goods.

    The thing is with the rest of the market is that the stalls are mainly selling cheap and knockoff stuff that while I'm sure not at all expensive to purchase, it just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to buy. I did buy a t-shirt for $5 bucks and didn't have to barter much with the shop owner (shirt was at least made in Cambodia so I did have that going for me).

    Again I wouldn't recommend doing any serious shopping here. Even as a tourist I think you can probably find better souvenirs at the "Amazing Cambodia" store or even some stalls at the Russian Market.

    My advice: grab a coffee or drink from one of the stalls and just take in the sights, sounds and smells from the market for an hour. Sure beats trying to haggle down the price of some cheap thing you can no doubt get elsewhere.

    Multiple locals told me I had to visit the Russian Market during my stay in Phnom Penh, and even though I had already been to the Central Market and Night Market, I decided to give it a shot.

    One thing that you need to know before going here is that this market is pretty tight-quarters. Do not go if you are a claustrophobic person. It's also closed-air which means it gets pretty hot during the day and also traps all the different scents and aromas in one place (put on my mask as it just wasn't a pleasant smell in some areas).

    I will say there is a ton of different things and sections to browse, only problem is that most of the stuff sold is knock off or cheap Chinese stuff. I bought Angkor Beer and Tiger Beer shirts for 8 bucks together, but other than that nothing really caught my attention.

    Ultimately I think the Central Market is more pleasant to walk around, and the Night Market's close proximity to Riverside also makes it a better bet as well.

    It’s a big mall with many well known brands, a big food court, Aeon department store and even a cinema. I liked a small shop on the second floor, Amazing Cambodia, that had specially selected gifts that were iconic for this lovely country - Pepper seeds, teas, candles, silks and more.

    Sorya Center Point, Phnom Penh
    Please note: This review is about the Sorya Center Point shopping mall and NOT Golden Sorya nightlife area, commonly known nowadays as “Pub Street”
    Sorya opened in 2003 on street 63, two minutes walk from Central Market. Most local people were fascinated by the escalators, not previously seen in Cambodia. Many floors dedicated to upmarket shopping and places to eat including a large food court, popular with students.
    Another attraction is the air-conditioning providing an escape from the heat of the unforgiving sun.
    The top floor has a cinema with the latest movies, local and international while the ground floor boasts a branch of the excellent Lucky Supermarket chain. There is also a well-stocked pharmacy for your pills, plasters and preparations.
    The ground floor main area often has market style retailers selling a variety of houseware products, shoes, bedding and cosmetics etc.
    Sorya opens 9am and closes 9pm and has on-site parking and a range of ATM’s.
    A attractive place to shop and relax, if you are already in the city center.

    For years, the central market in Phnom Penh has been the heart of trade for the city. The complex is huge where the locals do their daily shopping. The place is divided into different sections, each based on one area of commerce: food, clothes, electronics, etc.

    The food section is so colourful and vibrant with noises of merchants and visitors. One can easily spend a very good few hours here.

    Phnom Penh’s Old Market, which Cambodian’s know as Phsar Chas, is close to the Night Market, situated between streets 108 & 110. From the riverfront take the short walk down 108 & the market will be on your left after crossing street 13. Continuing down 108, keeping Phsar Chas on your left, you arrive at street 15 which is narrow & often covered with plastic sheeting & tarpaulins, to fend off inclement weather. This is the area where you will find fresh meat, fish, crabs & vegetables.
    Many of the vendors open around 6am while others appear to close by late afternoon. Best time to visit would be early morning, say 8am.
    Phsar Chas, with many narrow passageways, serves the needs of local businesses such as hotels & guest houses with fruit, vegetables, fresh meat/fish & cut flowers. It is also the place to get your hair re-styled or a quick trim & have your nails repaired & decorated. I noticed at least one small business where clothes can be altered or repaired including replacing a broken zip or missing buttons. Other small shops sell a mix of household requisites & cosmetics. You will also find Buddhist candles & incense sticks with an array of related items in some of the market’s small units.
    Everyone is welcome although not really a tourist attraction, but none-the -less, well worth the opportunity of witnessing the comings & goings of a very busy traditional Cambodian market.
