Markets in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

What do you want to buy? Do you want to buy some groceries? In Phnom Penh, finding a market is very easy because no matter where you stays in the capital, you can always find a market nearby. The local word for market is “Psah” and for the locals “Psah” can be a market, a shopping mall or a mart. The community markets are the most visited. At those markets there is nearly everything you need for your daily cooking as well as other stuff ranging from kitchen equipment to clothing, all in one place. Although each market has nearly everything to offer, there is specialty for each market. For example Tuol Tumpung market is famous for souvenirs while Olympic market is famous for clothing.
