Not to be confused with the Central Parket (Psah Thmay), the
Russian Market (Psar Toul Tom Poung) is best reached via tuk-tuk or
moto. It is located south of Mao Tse Tuong Boulevard, and offers
tourists a range of great bargains. Silk scarves are dirt cheap,
and it is easy to find curios, souvenirs bargains and the infamous
$3 silk hammocks - perfect gifts for friends and family back home.
It's best to go early or later in the evening as it gets unbearably
hot inside the market during the day. Shoppers who cant take the
heat should head to one of the nearby cafÃ©s lining the market for a
delicious fruit cocktail. The market was named the Russian Market
as this was where tourists (mostly Russians) shopped when visiting
Cambodia just after the fall of the Khmer Rouge.
