This is heaven if you like shopping. All brand name designers and well made Cambodian clothes are available. You will have negotiate as vendors goods are priced high but they are eager to make a deal. My best advice is to walk through the market...More

Fun market with so many trinkets and souvenirs! You can get knock off Vans or converse, Ray Bans and other designer apparel. Shop owners are so friendly. Make sure to bargain. I got some cute (but tourist-y) elephant pants and gifts for family and friends

Should spend at least half day here. This is one of the best place to discover the daily life and living style of local people. If you want to buy anything, remember to bargain carefully.

All markets in Cambodia we visited are very similar however, this market has the widest range of products very neatly laid out into sections with very friendly local people running every stall. Best market we visited in Phnom Penh.

A nice way to spend a hour or 2 if your looking for some cheap clothes and tourist trinkets of your trip to Cambodia. A mixed market with lots of shade and cool drinks available. Nothing special to see but a nice experience anyway.

We went at night and it was okay. Nothing special. We were done in about 15 minutes. It's an outdoor set up with mostly clothes and a food area where people sit on mats to eat. We much preferred the Russian Market.

The complex is open but many stalls will not be, hit and miss really.
