This market is popular with tourists, with prices reflecting that.

                            This sweltering bazaar is the one market all visitors should come to at least once during a trip to Phnom Penh. It is the place to shop for souvenirs and discounted name-brand clothing. We can’t vouch for the authenticity of everything, but, along with plenty of knock-offs, you’ll find genuine articles stitched in local factories.

                            Aeon Mall
