3.5/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This market is really nice, the market is arranged by areas so you can find what you are looking for easily 
  • Built in 1937 and renovated some few years ago, the Central Market, known in the local language as Psar Thmei/Thmey, is one of the biggest markets in Cambodia. Apart from world brands, you can find virtually everything here, ranging from clothes, jewels to foods and drinks. When you visit Phnom Penh, you should not miss this place as well as the Russian Market (Psar Tuol Tom Poung).
  • There is a landmark of Phnom Penh city, and it's running long time ago. You can find any cheap products in here such as clothes, electronic, ... But no free toilet and no Wi-Fi. The parking is on the street so bad. Ohhhh... Specially, many souvenir shops in here, you can buy back to your country. Buy souvenirs from here is best than other.
  • If you're looking for a relatively clean market with a Cambodian feeling then this is the place. From clothes to all kind of accessorize, to food products and souvenirs, exchange bureaus and tech gadgets. Be prepared to haggle a lot and always greet the sellers with a smile. Most of them are nice.
  • They have everything here for tourists, clothes, bags, souvenirs. It can be a bit hot inside depending on time of day. Prices are good if you barter.
  • Lots of interesting items. Make sure you barter as they will try to rip you off (read: offer 1/4 what they originally want). Best to offer low then walk if they say no, they will usually chase you down and give a good price :)
