The newly renovated Psah Thmey in Phnom Penh. It's popularly known to most tourists as the Central Market.

Psah Thmey  was built in the French art deco-style in 1937 in the shape of a dome with four arms branching out into vast hallways with hundreds of stalls/shops. In 2009-2011, the government received funding from the French Development Agency for its renovation.

Psah Thmey is one of the liveliest and busiest shopping centre and the number one tourist spot in Phnom Penh.
