A very local market full of residents buying their daily food. Not really a tourist attraction IMO. Very easy to get lost in, so be warned.

Excellent to wander around looking at all the various food and vegetable stalls. Best ribs ever at the back and lots to see. We did it with a. Guide which helped as would not have been brave enough to try somethings ourselves !

Really fun walk through the market. Never knew exactly where we were and every corner had something interesting. Has more local feel than the central market or Russian market.

This market is frequented by the locals. You rarely find any foreigners here. It's very hot and smells, especially after rain. However, the items sold here are very organic and you can see all walks of life of the Khmers frequenting this local market. It's...More
