The busy districts surrounding Russian Market (Tuol Tompong and Boeung Tompong) are some of the best in Phnom Penh for tourists and locals alike. Its name harks back to the large Russian expatriate population back in the 1980s.
In the market, you will find many souvenirs like silk cloth and scarves from the provinces, stone carvings and other religious icons, western and local handbags and branded clothing from local factories. Further inside is an array of fresh food – fruit, veg, seafood and fish. There are also items like lamps, wood carvings, fabrics and kitchen wares. At night there are many restaurants serving freshly grilled seafood.
