Russian Market is the most popular market in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The name derived from its popularity amongst Russian expatriates in the 1980s, a time when many of Moscow’s Cold War goods were stocked in here.
Located at the south end of the French's Quarter, the market now is a must-do for first-time visitors: it's busy and full of life, as well as being about to present thousands of stuff you don't really need or buy but you'll quite enjoy spending time watching them there. Raging from Hardware goods, drinks and food, antique furniture, hand-woven silk, traditional carvings to even DVDs and jewelry, the market is overwhelming yet interesting to do a deep exploration. Since navigating it can be tricky, our guide will help you walk through it. Give yourself at least an hour for each aisle and stall will have something different.
It opens from 7:00 am up to 11:00 pm (for souvenirs shop). So if you are tired of temple-hopping, come here to get closer to the lifestyle of the local people.

Nearby tourist attractions that you should not give a miss are the Royal Palace, Wat Phnom, National Museum and the Tuol Sleng Museum, all is easy to reach with our private van.
