    You'll probably find something
    There is a lot of everything to find. We got very good prices on souvenirs such as T-shirts, a krama, earrings, stuff like that. But when we needed a piece of luggage as ours broke, we found the prices quite steep, while the sellers insisted it was an original of some fancy brand. Yeah... no. A mixed experience, but worth checking out for souvenirs. The sellers are not overly insistent so you can walk and look in peace for the most part.

    The real deal away from the tourist meccas
    Every Asian city has their busy markets where locals offer food and wares to all who stumble through, but the Russian Market in PP seems to be geared far more to those 'in the know'. A patchwork roof spanning an entire city block covers stalls that hold every conceivable bit of tat you could think of. From off-brand clothing to homewares to motorcycle parts to your daily fresh groceries, this space has it all and is where the locals come to get it. Some stall holders are happy to bargain their prices, especially if you choose to buy multiple items, but quite a few will stand firm on prices. This is largely due to the rents placed on each stall, which can be a challenge if niche items are sold. Prepare to have a crack, but don't be disappointed if your efforts are flatly knocked back. The centre of the rabbit warren has an amazing little eatery where stall holders will compete to offer you a seat, however know that quite a few of them work together to ensure everyone is equally catered for and looked after. My group had lunch here one day and enjoyed the experience and banter so much we returned for breakfast the next. It's very easy to get good coffee and fresh juice, as well as some truly authentic cuisine here. If you're looking for an authentic Cambodian interaction, skip the Old Market and head here instead. It's everything there and so much more, and just *feels better*.

    Not too clean
    It is your typical Asian large market with sections for clothes, meats, fruits and vegetables, cloth, etc. The only unique part of it was it had a section for vehicle parts whcih I found kind of cool. Inside, it's stuffy and there's water on the floor in the meat market. It's a cool experience if you've never been to this kind of market before, but definitely not the nicest market we've been to.

    very hot but love the place
    Love the russian market but beware that it feeling like 1000000 degrees in there and you will feel like you are being suffocated if you go in the middle of the day when it is really hot! I would recommend going in the afternoon or morning but it does close at 4:30. Most of them sell the same things and shop around to find the cheapest price. They will also try and make you feel bad by telling you that they are your first customer (its not true). Love this place tho

Aisle after aisle of similar clothing and bags. Limited space to walk between shop displays. Continually heckled by shop staff to buy their goods. A maze that would be very difficult to exit and n a hurry or emergency.

Probably the best market for clothes and shoes that I visited in Phnom Penh. Plenty of Lacoste and Ralph. Timberland and CAT shoes. Also plenty of souvenirs. Can’t believe that I couldn’t find a pack of souvenir playing cards. Apparently that’s not a thing in Cambodia.

This market did seem to group by product. We found the items here more interesting and better quality then the Central Market. They did have a large hardware component that we gave a miss. There are food stalls at the back and a food market as well. It was interesting for about 45 minutes
