A good place to get souvenirs, largely the same as the night markets that dot Siem Reap Old Town. Bargain hard,and buy in larger quantities for good discounts. It's really for tourists. If you want a real local market in Siem Reap, go to Phsar Leu (Central Market). That is one big market and very local... don't expect the gaudy... More

this is an old market in Cambodia and we can say it a culture market. Most people known this market as the 60s Century market.

Phsar Chas (old market in Khmer) is one of the proper local markets. You will still find the typical tourist t-shirts and elephant pants but you'll also be able to find actual Cambodian products among all the household goods that the Cambodians will come here to purchase. There is also a food section with sort of fresh fruits and vegetables... More

noisy, crowded, warm, sensory overload. All that I was hoping for at a market. And most definitely not a lot of tourists! I love the different "sections", ranging from wet market, fruit & veg, spices, houseware items, shoes, jewelry, haircare (!) and of course, clothes and fabric. Remember to bargain!

Phsar Chas means Old Market. Its where the localsv seem to shop for anything from vegetables to clothes. Might interest those who want to catch a feel of a Khmer local market. The market is situated in the 13/15th street and Street 108/110 area.

Phsar Chas is an old market in the city, on street 13. It sells all kinds of food: fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dry food, noodles, spices, etc. The hygiene for meat was so so. I saw sometimes dead hens under the stall, directly on the wet floor. Fruits were fresh and good. It is a marvellous experience to walk around,... More

This is a true Asian market, and worth a visit. It's geared towards residents rather than tourists, so if you spot something you want as a non-resident, be prepared and learn a few Khmer words to help your haggling

As a long-term resident, this is by far my least favorite market in phnom penh. The ground is slippery and unever, dark inside, and the ceiling is way too low (I need to stoop in many places). Prices are also a bit higher than other markets nearby.
