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.

It's a big/main sight in the city but traffic is horrible around there so do not car/van/taxi/bus it here - walk/bike/tuktuk. It's a market so WATCH YOUR STUFF! Pickpockets are a plenty and it is a bit of a tourist trap! It's just another market (but THE market) but there's good people watching and it's a neat building.

I bought a pair of sunglasses here. They were fake Raybans and they broke really easily. If you are looking for quality, this may not be your place to go, but if you want cheap shopping you should def go here!

This market was just a tuk tuk ride away from the Teahouse. Inside the round market were mostly jewelry and as you stepped out you'll see lots of vegetables, fruits, souvenirs and clothing merchants. Quite enjoyable!
