The biggest market in the city, Phsar Leu Thom Thmey has everything you could possibly need. Browse through countless piles of local products and essentials—with inexpensive price tags to boot! You’ll encounter different kinds of sights, sounds, and smells, as well, but it’s all part of the authentic experience! Since most merchants here don’t speak English, we recommend you learn a few basic Khmer (Cambodia’s official language) phrases before diving in: “chum reap suor” (chum-reap-sore, “hello”), “bo man” (bow-man, “how much), and “arkun” (ar-koon, thank you).
