Although the Russian market oaffers more traditional items such as Cambodian silk, the Central Market is cooler and easier to get around in. Be prepared to bargain and dont expect the watches to work! lots of copy Ray Bans and other western items althoguh be careful not to support the sweat shops of Levis and other brands that support this type of slave labour

If you have been to other markets these are no different. You can find some gems if you hunt but a lot of things you don't really need. It is hot and stuffy most of the time.

The Central Market is a very busy place, lots of great stalls and many hours to spend shopping. A great day out as is the Russian market. Both very good the Russian market is very hot though and very crowded but worth it.

the day we went was not as crowded as the next day we visited, so maybe friday is a better time, but the food is great and cheap and good bargains if you are prepared to barter, which they love and laugh about....enjoy

I enjoy heading to this market and have done so many times. The majority of the stalls are close together so it can get a little warm and humid in there. Give yourself at least an hour wandering around and bartering. The design has a real French chic about it.
