Psah O’Russei (O’Russei Market)
Phnom Penh

The cavernous, concrete building of Psah O’Russei market is a giant maze to get around to and getting lost is just part of the fun. At the ground floor alone, hundreds of shops and stalls are jam-packed with all things food and kitchen-wares (above photo). The atmosphere is so fascinating that I always come here just to soak in the sights, the sounds and the smells. Not only that O’Russei market is a perfect place to pick up a thing or two, food stuff or otherwise, but it also offers great photo opportunities and meeting with colorful local characters.
