I recently had to pick up some gifts, and the best market for gifts in Phnom Penh is the Russian Market (Psaa Toul Tom Poung).  The Russian Market is the tourist market in Phnom Penh.


This is the place to come to if you want to buy….

Silk…


Ceramics…
Jewelry…


TIP:  If you are buying silver jewelry, you’ll get a better price from the shops on the southern side of the market, than from those in the centre of the market.

Factory rejects… 

TIP:  Check the labels and quality carefully, not everything here is ‘genuine’.
Bags, Scarves and other souvenirs…




You’ll need to bargain, but there’s some great stuff here.

A lot of work has been done recently to clean the market up a bit, and, as you can see, it’s quite easy to navigate and no where near as cramped as it used to be.

Once you’ve had your fill of the market I recommend strolling down to The Coffee House for refreshments ; )
