Trip Description

The market is has many things of interest to many people. Inside you can find, all manner of hardware goods, drinks and cooked food, antique furniture, traditional carvings and handicraft, hand-woven silk, music, movie and computer CDs, silverware, gems, books and maps, backpacks and bags and shoes and clothing. Some shoes and clothing originate as out-takes from various garment factories. Hence some top labels can be found at very reasonable prices. Many local artisans use the market as an outlet to the tourist market. You can find the new traditional handicrafts interspersed with older genuine antique carvings. You can often see provincial artisans carrying their goods which they have brought with them, sometimes as far away as Mondol Kiri and Rottana Kiri, to sell to the Russian Market retailers. This is especially true just prior to the 'Water Festival' (or 'Boat Races') which usually occurs around mid-November every year. The newer wooden carvings may tend to split once they are taken to a less humid climate. Most retailers will repair these items in the first year after purchase if you have made an agreement during bargaining.
