  • Russian Market

    Phnom Penh Shopping

    I really like the Russian Markets, though it can be very hot and stifling in there, so get there early if you can. You can buy absolutely everything you could ever imagine here and the best part is a lot of the clothing is very good quality and in western sizes. They also now have a huge selection of winter clothing, jackets, jeans etc. Wander in...

  • Central Market (Pasah Thmay)

    Phnom Penh Shopping

    Central Market (Phsar Thmei, which means New Market) is on the corner of Street 67 & Street 136. The building these markets are in is a landmark in Phnom Penh due to their unique style. The vaulted ceiling up to 30 metres in places give the place a spacious feeling, so walking around in here is nice. Walking up the entrance to the markets on...

    You can almost everything here at a very cheap price. Do some bargain. But don't rely on your Cambodian guide to bargain for you because they simply wouldn't do that. Why? I think because Cambodian is a very proud people. The don't beg and they don't bargain....hmmm.... But personlly you can do it yourself. The shopper are friendly. Opss refer...

    Between Phnom Penh and Siem Riep, about an hour before you get to siem riep you have a small village where the inhabitants have specialised in carving things in stones.It's really an odd sight coming through this little village where you have large newly made buddah staues sitting all over and dozens of guys working on new ones.The big statues are...

    Phsar Tmey aka Central Market. Its a nice shopping place but ccan be a little to hot and humid in there. I cant stand to shop for more than 30 minutes inside there.

  • russian market

    as we went there on a chinese new year day, the inner market was closed. what were opened were the fake CD shops. my advice is to buy your dvds from those shops. they are of very good quality. none of the shows i bought screwed up on me, and all are of "real" quality. the only grouse is that some of the subtitles can be .... very, very wrong. pay...

  • Fresh crisp US $1.00 bills

    Just a tip to those traveling to Cambodia. Its somewhat inconvenient but worth the effort to convert the majority of your spending/shopping cash into crisp USA one dollar bills. Especially when shopping in the market places. A cambodian shop keeper will return your torn or worn bills, they won't accept them!!! And if you pay in larger...

  • Markets

    I went to Old Market and Central Market. Both are within walking distance (15 to 20 minutes i think). Recommend that you visit Old Market first. Scan the goods that you are interested in and tour the colourful and bustling wet market. The shops at Old Market seemed to be charging higher prices than Central Market cos there are more tourists there....

    Swarms of children will rush to you everytime you step into a tourist spot.... It may seem irritating at times, but these children are only trying to help their family to earn some extra monies...The prices are bargainable but more often than not, they're only slightly pricier than those sold in markets outside...I regretted not buying much from...

  • local markets are not just for shopping

    Any visitor to Southeast Asia should be drawn towards the local markets. Otherwise, you’re missing a lot. Cambodia is no exception and Phnom Penh in particular had many colorful markets to check out. Even if you are too shy to shop or afraid to try the local foods, you can soak in the kaleidoscope of colors that assault you and take in a deep whiff...

    It is quite daunting if you get pestered by kids while visiting around the temples. Unless you are looking for something, the pestering will get on your nerves.It is up to you whether you want to buy or not. The stuff they sell are quite cheap and a bargain.Honestly why pay $20++ for the latest Lonely Planet guide to Cambodia at a mega faceless...

    Just like any sizeable city in Southeast Asia, Siem Reap has a large central market that sells anything a local might need. In front of the market are rows of food stalls offering cheap local eats, as well as some miscellaneous fruit, vegetable, and snack vendors. Inside the covered market, which is really just a large warehouse, you will find...

  • Central Market Flowers

    Around the outside of Central Market are vaious flower stalls. The aroma of all the different blooms when it mixes with the heat of the day is wonderful. Maybe not the sort of thing for tourists to buy but nevertheless, wonderful to wander amidst.

  • Phnom Penh

    The Central Market has all sorts of goodies to buy. There is jewellery, household goods, material, souvenirs and some wonderful silverware. Be wary with the silver, its not solid so don't go polishing it too hard, you will find whats underneath.. however its all really lovely stuff.

  • Siem Reap

    Siem Reap has a very traditional Asian market which sells books, curios and souvenirs. There are some great buys to be had with silk hand-woven silks in the markets and of course some great silver which were my downfall. By the time I had finished with the poor girl with what I was buying I’m sure she didn’t know if she had struck a good deal or...

    Local markets are a really nice experience, even if you are not gonna buy anything. Most of them are full of color and strange things, specially those of food and medicines. I like to ask the vendors about the items they are selling, they were extremely kind and explained it all to me with a smile.But apart from the aesthetic aspect, there are many...

  • 2 x 1 dollar

    Around the temples you will find many "2 for 1 dollar" items. Those kids selling cheap souvenirs seem to know only that english sentence, so everything they sell costs 1 dollar, and includes 2 items!!! Maybe you can bargain for 3 items, but this girl was so cute that I couldn't :-))I bought these 2 flutes for my kids... and everyday I repent, as my...

  • Cambodian Handicrafts and Souvenirs

    Along the riverside, there is a row of shophouses which sell handicrafts like wood-crafted Apsaras. As Batambang is known as "Ubud of Cambodia", tourists like to purchase "big" items in Battambang to be shipped back home as decorations. I bought a pair of small wooden Apsaras at USD$6.

    Cambodida is famous for it's cheaper labor cost, big business in making clothes. We were told my some Chinese people doing business there that the Central market is definitely a good place to get the famous brand stuff, eg, jeans, clothes. Well, it might take a while to go around, of course, your eyesight is a must as well.

  • Souvenir Shopping

    We bought so much we felt like jack@sses, but when we got home we wished we'd bought more. The cotton scarves (kramas) are fabulous - they're cheap and can be given away as gifts or used as bandannas, belts, headbands, and table runners. Why I didn't buy a dozen is beyond me. Another regret is not buying some rubbings from the Ankor Wat complex...

    In the bus from Phmon Penh to Saigon, we stopped at the Mekong River in order to cross it on a ferry. While we were there stopped, a bunch of local vendors came INTO the bus offering all kind of food and drinks. There were some outside too, trying to seel by the windows, but these came in and they passed by every single seat showing you all the...

    We wandered the market for about 2 hours and were amazed by the range of goods offered. The stall holders were pleasant, lots of Hallo's but not pushy.The gold and jewellery sections were just amazing and the posse of children we had collected were not allowed in there! We bought Krama and T-shirts for a couple of dollars each. The quality was...

  • Haggle, haggle, haggle!!!

    The Central Market is a prime shopping stop that should be a part to anyone's visit to Phnom Penh. There you will find a wide variety of merchandise, including local crafts and various imports (mostly from other Asian countries). Above all, however, you must not accept the first price offered. Again and again, we were able to negotiate the prices...
