If you have the time you should also consider visiting some of Phnom Penh’s markets. Phnom Penh’s markets are thriving and colourful places where visitors can see an authentic slice of local life and marvel at the wide range of produce on sale. The most architecturally significant market is the brilliant art-deco style Central Market which opened in 1937 during the time when Cambodia was under French colonial rule. Central Market is partly a tourist market as well as a place local people go to shop. For a more authentic experience visit Orussey Market, which is Phnom Penh’s largest market. Orussey Market doesn’t really cater to foreign tourists but it does sell just about anything and everything required to run a household or a small business in Cambodia. Orussey Market is a hot, smelly and chaotic place which you may really hate or find really interesting depending on who you are.
