Indulge in a shopping frenzy at Russian Market, Phnom Penh’s large discount retail area. Countless stalls, small shops, and food outlets will make you dizzy as you browse through cotton and silk clothing items, multicolored trinkets, or handicrafts suspended from the ceiling. A variety of fresh seafood, produce and spices, and a wide selection of motorbike spare parts offer something for anyone’s taste. Referred to as Russian by foreigners because of the dominance of Soviets here in the 1980s, the market has since evolved into a truly global retail outlet.

I found this market a bit too closed in and overwhelming. Definitely a great place to visit if you want to hunt for a bargain and some trinkets to take home. Very hot and crowded due to being in a cov... read more »
Lots of stalls but all of which requires you to bargain to get souvenirs at a decent price. Narrow lanes in a cramped environment. Some say that that's the charm of the place, but to me the place is p... read more »

It's good market for both local people and foreigners. There are vary you can buy in Toul Tom poung market,which know as Russian market for tourist people. There are many delicious street food stall, souvenirs, fruit. My favorite in this market is avocado shake, hmm It's yummy with reasonable price (around $1.8).

Originally called Russian Market until now.. there were so many Russian coming to do shopping here.. Toul Tom Pong is known as varieties of shopping stores coming along exported qualities with low prices..
Located in the south part of Phnom Penh, Russian Marke is known to the locals as Phsar Toul Tom Poung. It's one of the most popular places in town, of course no comparison to Thailand's Chatuchak. Despite its name, the one thing you cannot buy here is the Russian :-). The market has a wide range of local products, sold mostly at cheap prices but you shouldn't be feeling ashamed to bargain as some venders simply make up the prices high. So bargain hard. There are also several food stalls inside. Out of the market regular hours, people also sell veggies, meat and fruits outside of the market.
Also known as Russian Market; however, most local people known it as Toul Tom Poung Market. It's a popular market for Tourist as most sellers can communicate in English. The best thing, tourists and local people can easily find souvenir, traditional clothes and other clothes from factory and abroad. The price is reasonable and cheap, but seller sometimes set the double price. Hence, you need to bargain as always. There are a lot of street food out side the market during evening time; it is good to try.
If you guys happen to go there. Don't forget to drop by store 46 inside the market (silk shop: bag, scarves, pashmina....). The seller is really friendly and kind... You gonna like her!! I like her smile...
