One of the city's iconic landmarks, Central Market represents one of the best places to feel the pulse of the city, while you browse for souvenirs and bargain like a local. The market occupies a yellow art deco building from 1937. A huge stepped dome that covers its main hall--cool and vented even on a hot day--is its most distinctive feature. The four "arms" of the structure stretch from the four sides of the dome and are packed with stalls displaying an impressive array of goods from fresh food and clothing to gold jewelry and antique coins. Plan your visit to Central Market and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Phnom Penh itinerary planner.

  • I really liked this market. It was organised in such a way that you could work out where to go for what you wanted. Prices were great and easy to shop. Recommend it.
