Central Market, Phnom Penh

(4,200+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market
One of the city's iconic landmarks, Central Market represents one of the best places to feel the pulse of the city, while you browse for souvenirs and bargain like a local. The market occupies a yellow art deco building from 1937. A huge stepped dome that covers its main hall--cool and vented even on a hot day--is its most distinctive feature. The four "arms" of the structure stretch from the four sides of the dome and are packed with stalls displaying an impressive array of goods from fresh food and clothing to gold jewelry and antique coins. Put Central Market and other Phnom Penh attractions into our Phnom Penh trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The clothes here pale in comparison to markets in the region. A decent dress is being touted for $15USD. Madness. On the other hand, if you are interested in replica watches and jewelry... Interesting...  more »

  • Indoor market in historic French building with lots of small shops selling the usual clothing and phone accessories your find everywhere else in Asia. Outside your will find some stalls that sell fresh produce. The building has a beautiful art deco design and it's windows let in a lot of light which colors very nicely with the yellow-ish paint of the building.
  • Great place to get anything you want,clothes ,shoes,electronic gadgets pot and pans. Dont forget to checkout the food sections can get so.e very tasty cheap eats.
  • The Central Market is a special place Well laid out, offering customers a very wide choice of goods and services and food and drinks - a real shoppers paradise Textiles, fruits, food, jewellery, curios, chilled tender coconut water, A great place to spend an interesting day
  • There are many souvenirs and good food in this market. It is the most organized market in Phnom Penh with french colonial design and very attractive tourist sight.
  • This art deco was built in 1937 and newly renovated in 2011. The white colour buildings are new from 2011 and the yellow colour buildings are original from 1930s. The airy dorm is a significant feature of this tropical friendly building. This market is really well organized and monitored by the security guards well, so I can say it's safe to go shopping here.
