Private Half-Day Tour of Phnom Penh's Traditional Markets
In contrast to the bustle of the market, you will visit the temple Toul Tum Poung next to the market. It has miraculously avoided to the destruction during the Khmer Rouge period. It is a fine example of a local temple with many beautiful wall paintings of the 1960s.
From here it is onto what is known as the Old Markets or Phar Chars for a look at a more traditional local market where you will see locals busily bartering with the stall holders for their daily food, clothing and whatever else they need in their daily lives.
To close this morning, you will discover the Central Markets, referred to as Phsah Thmei meaning new market this art deco style building is one of the iconic buildings of Phnom Penh. Again here you will find a shopper’s paradise and you can haggle away with the locals for whatever special gift or memento you desire.

Highly recommended. The Guide did a good job of customising the tour for what I wanted to see. He took me to the 3 main markets and took time to ensure my requirements were met. Really good if local markets, cuisine etc interest you
Tour was as listed. The different markets were interesting as they were different. Enjoyed the Russian Market more. A must have is the organic sugar cane drink straight from the Sugar Cane Press as you watched it live! Make sure to bargain for what you want to buy.
