Comparing this market to Russian market in Phnom Penh or central market in Phnom Penh is not fair comparison. This market is far more just clothes. But it is a little more open than Russian Market. Prices similar

As an avid buyer at all destinations the fact did not buy anthing here says something. Undercover hot and humid we got a sense of the local culture rather than as a place to buy stuff. The usual trinkets T shirts and fresh fruit etc for sale.

Very hot inside, so take water. The laneways are cramped and narrow. Very noisy but plenty to see. A lot of the 'gold' jewelry is actually silver, if that!. Buyer beware.

They have everything here from clothing, toys, seafood, meat, but probably not much for tourists. This is definitely a market for locals and most vendors seemed not interested in serving foreigners. We bought some mangosteens and they were not cheap at all, USD $7 for 2 kilos from a stern faced woman. I was attracted by this woman who was... More

After seeing many markets this is again a market selling fish, fruit and clothing. Nice T shirts for only 3 dollar and behind the market there was a small shop selling small shrines which most people hang in there shop for luck and fortune

If you live in the neighborhood, this place is essential for fresh produce and those odd items you can't find elsewhere. Beware: some vendors seem to dislike westerners and will overcharge! My rule: offer each vendor a friendly smile. Only shop with the ones who return the smile! Since I began this policy I pay, on average, 30% less for... More

This market simply has little to offer a western tourist. Having just been in Vietnam where market traders harass you, I found the exact opposite here where the market traders don’t want to know you. And there was nothing at these markets that we were interested in. To top it all off, the odour from the food and seafood stalls... More

I enjoyed wandering around this market, but it really isn't a tourist attraction. It's a place where local people go to buy everything and anything. Lots of clothing stalls, very tight, narrow paths between them. It was very crowded. Meat, fish and veg were all being sold here too - so typical smells etc Loved watching the jewellers working at...

It's huge but really nothing interesting for us. We have travelled a lot in the Middle East so were expecting to find lots of treasures or even touristy stuff. No treasures at all. Cheap clothes, some handbags and a lot of food stalls. It's for Cambodian people who live there I think. Lots of basics like tissues, washing up liquid... More

Very busy with locals buying there daily fresh food supplies. Make sure you have a strong stomach if you go into the fish and meat areas of the market. A lot of hawkers trying to get you into taxis. Overall not very exciting unless you want a first-hand locals experience!
