"Toul Tom Poung Market" Russian Market Tip by kelnsha
Russian Market, Phnom Penh: 18 reviews and 30 photos
More commonly referred by foreigners as Russian market. It was where Russians shopped during the 1980s.
Best place in town for souvenirs and clothes shopping. It has a large range of real and fake antiquities, including miniature Buddhas, wood carvings, betel-nut boxes, silk, silver jewellery, musical instruments and so on. Bargain hard as thousands of tourists pass through here each month.
This is also the market where all the western clothing made in garment factories around Phnom Penh turns up. Popular brands include Gap, Colombia, Calvin Klein, Quicksilver, Aigle and Next but more are coming to Cambodia all the time.
Also available are inexpensive DVDs, CDs and computer programmes, as well as a host of other goodies. This is the one market all visitors should come to at least once during a trip to Phnom Penh.
What to buy: There is a good range of trousers, skirts, shirts, T-shirts, boxer shorts and shoes.
What to pay: All at around 10% of the price paid back home.
