We spent about 2 hours at the Central Market as a wrap-up of our 5-day land tour in Cambodia. During the tour, our itinerary was quite packed and we did not have a chance to see any local shop and check out the local price....More

Tourists would be more familiar with Russian market but this is bigger and has everything that Russian market has. Good place to get to know Cambodia. T shirts are dirt cheap. I personally think it is a good place to have a look.

This is a good place to visit and do the shopping. You can also see the market where local people buy their food. So interesting.

Nothing compared to JJ market in Bangkok or the one in Ho Chi Minh. The products were uninteresting. The only thing nice about it was the art deco building that the market is housed in.

Really isn't anything special about this market when compared to any others around south east Asia. The best part is easily the live fish area which has turtles and other animals to walk around and see. If you're in the area stop by and pick...More

Local flavor style can be explored here at a glance. I can say not too dirty. Price can be negotiated friendly. Very well landscaped and completed for living. If add more designed products, it ll create higher value to the market.
