Phnom Penh's Night Market, Phnom Penh

(2.5/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Phnom Penh's Night Market offers all sorts of souvenirs, clothes, and street food in a bustling setting very popular with locals. Indulge in some serious retail therapy as you browse the stalls and stands of the market, where you can pick up everything from knock-off fashion items to handmade crafts. Grab a sausage-on-a-stick or some noodles to refuel, then treat yourself to a cool beer or fresh-squeezed fruit juice. Take a break from shopping and enjoy a few performances on the market stage--you'll notice these are not tourist entertainment, but rather a great way to bone up on your knowledge of the local pop music. Keep in mind that you'll need to bargain hard to get a decent price on your buys.

  • Maybe it is my comparison to the livelihood and excitement that Thai markets offered, but I did not necessarily enjoy this market. It is very small, and the food was not appetizing at all. Everything ...  more »
  • This modest night market is located at the end of Riverside and long before the dock where you can catch boats that take tourists on Sunset Cruise. A large square hosts the market that lies on its side with the stalls of clothing, and on the other those of catering. In the middle of a structure that could accommodate a band for music. Not worth going there, better to go to Central Market, aside from street food that always has its devotees, but I check three balls and I have dinner at the Riverside.

  • Cheap clothes, locals just hanging out, market stalls with the same items. This was such a disappointment. I probably stayed 15minutes in total. And that's only because there was a stage with live sin...  more »

  • One of my favorite places in Phnom Penh so far. It is incredibly soothing to just go through the small shops and watch what they offer, even though some things are, of course, repetitive. It's wonderful that there are many locals there as well, which just gives the whole place a much more authentic feeling, along with the live music acts performed. At the food court, you can chose in a variety of meat, seafood and tofu, it's all not too expensive and very tasty. Take a seat on one of the many mats on the floor and enjoy the evening, the sunset is always pretty here as well. Also, keep an eye open for the terrific soy milk and pumpkin juice at 2.000 Riel a bottle and grab a coconut ice cream as a dessert. There's a lot of Tuk Tuks around, which can be annoying sometimes, but if you stay in Phnom Penh longer, you'll quickly grow used to that.
  • One of the biggest night market in Phnom Penh. Really popular from local people and tourism. You can find many souvenir, clothes and street food here. There're also a concert at this market.
  • It was not that much charming place to me. Too touristic. clean and easy okey to eat and see something. 20 August 2016 upgrade one star. Becaus I visit night market today again and saw something nice concert. Seems good
  • Fun Place! Most of the stalls have the same food and there isn't much worth seeing other than food. It's worth a walk to though!
  • All the food is about the same at each table. Fried meats and other fried things! I'm pretty sure I got food poisoning from a papaya salad there. Many people get food poisoning in Cambodia. I'd stick to the non-edible shopping at the night market....which isnt awesome....
