Wear trousers that can be rolled up and flip-flops which can be washed afterwards when visiting this market! The paths at the back are pretty wet due to spillages from the meat and fish stalls and it's very easy to get spattered with various liquids...More

We have travelled all around Asia and always make a point to explore the best local markets so we couldn't resist a visit to this one. Unfortunately this one did not meet our expectations. Firstly the smell really is very overpowering. I've actually never been...More

The city’s biggest market, Phsar Leu – which means Upper Market or Higher Market – is one of our favourite Siem Reap markets. It’s located on National Route No 6, the highway that connects Siem Reap to Phnom Penh in the south and in the...More

I went here today to see how this local market compared to the much more touristy one downtown. There’s no question that it is where the locals shop, but I’d only advise visiting here if you can stomach flies buzzing all over the food, strong...More

This wet market is far removed form the likes of the tourist oriented "Old Market". This is your classic neighbourhood market, a riot of noise, colour, people and pungent smells. For spices, fresh curry pastes and the freshest vegetable imaginable, it is a destination, not...More
