This is a huge market, mostly full of household item, jewellery and souvenirs. If you want cheap gifts, it's fine here. They have a wet market, veggies and cooked market food/street food. It's very hot, so best not to go in the middle of the day. I love markets, and have been to many around the world. This market is... More

For souvenirs, you might find more selection in the Russian Market instead. Otherwise, here you can find all sorts of household items that you possibly needs, rice cooker, pillows, flip flops, eye glasses, plastic toys, cheap electronics, rat poison, tobacco wholesale ... my favorite is the vegetables and seafood stalls. Go in the morning to find the seafood still cold... More

Focal Market is a place where you will have the capacity to discover anything you are searching for. You will dependably get a modest cost on the grounds that the things are in all likelihood thump offs. That is alright in light of the fact that that places you in an intense position. You can deal and show signs of... More

This was a nice building. It was clean and bright. Jewellry was central and then the rest of the market spread out from this centre point. Vast array of goods sold.

My very first time to the Central market in phnom Penh. Huge place selling all kinds of items. .... shoes, bags etc. Prices are cheaper than malls, interesting fact is that you can also do some bargain. Shops open as early as 8 am till around 6pm. Be sure to go there when you are in Phnom Penh.
