A visit to Sihanoukville’s Central Market is a simple way to find out about Cambodian culture, commerce and cuisine. A one-stop learning experience on all things Khmer. Some posters have been put off by Phsar Leu’s foreignness: it doesn’t smell nice, it’s too hot, it’s...More

Other shops as well. The actual market at the rear of the front building, which houses a more conventional market, is amazing. Sure it stinks to high heaven but it's an amazing insight into day to day living in Cambodia. The level of hygiene leaves...More

Having seen other Cambodian markets we thought this would be worth a visit. As another reviewer wrote, this place is hot and stuffy. Just as important to note was that none of junk (a lot made in China) was appealing. None of the 34 people...More

It’s the most unorganised market I’ve been to in South East Asia thus far but it’s huge and crowded with locals. It’s a combination of wet market and dry market (selling clothes and fabrics) with some food stalls (which I doubt the hygiene). Anyway it’s...More

Phsar Leu, also known as "Upper Market" in English has been around Sihanoukville for a long long time. It is actually a wet market and you usually can get pretty decent prices for seafood products here. However, since the influx of Chinese into Sihanoukville, the...More

Compared to Benh Tanh market in HCMC, this is way under maintained and unorganised at all. You can bargain for those Cambodian singlets at $2/each.. I guess that's what tourists would buy! XD Other clothing is very expensive and they are not open for any...More

The usual Asian market with just about anything you want for sale. Lots of souvenirs, household, electronics, clothes, and of course the wet market.

You will deal with some interesting smells not all pleasant. Our guided indicated, the market is geared for lower income residents. The fruits and produce were interesting, well as the fish market. You may see a lot of beggars.

This market is very crowded, mostly with locals. There are many fruit stalls, seafood, and other foods. Clothes, jewellery, etc. The colors and odors can be a little overwhelming, particularly the latter.

Phsar Leu is a labyrinth of busy passageways, each lined with packed stalls selling all manner of goods: fresh food, flowers, clothes and so many other things. There is a motorbike park out front, which I think charges a nominal fee. I got the items...More
